To help keep me warm during the Winter weather I've made a couple of pairs of fingerless gloves using a pattern from Nicki Trench's book Cute and Easy Crochet with Flowers. (I omitted the flowers around the middle of each glove though.)
Once I'd mastered the first pair, I couldn't resist making another, although this time I made them a bit shorter because that suits me better.
They are really thick because they are made with aran, so they should keep my hands nice and toastie, whilst allowing me to operate the self checkout and PIN machines in the shops, without having to take them off and put them back on again. Right then, time for a bit more Christmas shopping.
