My Attempt at Fingerless Gloves or Mittens

So, I bought this super cute (and easy to understand) pattern on Etsy from WhileTheyPlay, to make some gloves for my grandmother. The design is beautiful and it's so fun to knit with all of those little double-pointed needles! It just takes me a while because unlike my grandmother I do not have petite hands. I used a somewhat fuzzy bamboo yarn which looks fabulous, but the stitches are tiny, so I had a hard time picking them out when I made a mistake.


One down and one to go!
And I'm getting faster!
It looks like the small is a perfect fit for a pre-teen, too!

Oh my gosh! My son wants to cut off the fingers of his Diego garden gloves because he likes this idea so much. These are so pretty and cozy.

Ciao bella,
Suzanne

PS
I'll have to check out the glove scene on etsy for these.
