Note from Janet: I love fingerless mitts, but I think this is the first pair I've actually made for myself! I got this yarn from my sister for Christmas and made these to go with my black for fall and warmer . (huh? what are those?!?!) I've also been known to wear them in the house while I'm knitting :) The colors got a little funny with the hand increases, but I still love the colors and the pattern, although I think I'll frog them to make them longer over my fingers. They just go to my knuckles now.
