I made these cute crocheted fingerless gloves a few weeks ago. I selected this pattern, because it worked up quickly, and they really did the job well of keeping my fingers nice and warm.
Then, while looking for a pattern to use for a gift for my daughter-in-law, I came across these knitted fingerless gloves. Well, I loved them so much, I decided to remake my own gloves using that pattern.
Since I didn’t have dpn’s big enough, this pattern was perfect, as you sew up the side seam after the whole glove is knitted.
Very excited to begin using these; there has been a slight lull in the very cold weather, so I have some time to finish them up!
I have spent the free time that I had this weekend making some accessories for the low temps that have arrived.
On Friday, I mentioned I’d be working in an ear warmer using a pattern from Paton. Well, I decided that I would just go back to the tried and true Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf. This pattern is very easy to knit, and a good introduction to short rows to the new knitter. Click on the picture below to find the pattern on Ravelry:

I enjoy listening to Bible studies on my phone while I walk, because it helps my mind go to another place while my legs are protesting the vigorous walk! So, I needed fingerless gloves be able to use my phone conveniently. I wanted them to be quick, and since I am a much faster crocheter than knitter, I found these quick and easy Simple Handwarmers by Jennifer Edwards. One reason why I picked this pattern is that with double crochets, they are flexible and comfortable, not stiff as single crochets would make them.
