Arm Warmers and Fingerless Gloves

So with the cold winter coming, I have decided to FINALLY get working and try out fingerless gloves. I must admit that when I first saw them, I thought NOT FOR ME!

But then people kept saying they really work. They help to keep your hands warm and still allow you the freedom to do things (like crochet, read a book, do schoolwork, etc.).

So the first pair I made were EE's. She LOVED them! Yellow is SO her!

Then I made MM's. I added a shell border so it would be easier to tell which way they go on. Pink and princess through and through!

Finally was AA's. Look at those hands! Not a child anymore!!

The pattern is free and WAY easy and FAST. But you do have to be a Ravelry member (which is free) to get the pattern as it is only available on ravelry.

I am currently working on a pair for Brian and then JJ will get his pair. Both are different patterns than this one. I will work on mine after they are taken care of.

I LOVE seeing how excited my girls are about these fingerless gloves! They keep thanking me for them and telling me how it helps to keep them warm. MM has not taken her off since I gave them to her yesterday morning! :D

Very cool! Those mitts look great. :) I've also been hesitant to try them, since it's usually my fingers that get cold first. But maybe I could give them a try...
