I never really thought of myself as a fingerless gloves kind of gal. I questioned whether or not I was hip enough to wear them. But then I realized (through my chic and savvy photography pals), that not only are these gloves stylish, they are perfect for snapping pictures on cold days. Or for those of you who are not big into photography but are into texting--this is for you! Seriously, what better way to keep your hands warm and your thumb and fingers free for adjusting the settings on your camera. Fun and functional! And really.... no matter what your age or style--you CAN pull off the look.
As far as knitting goes, the great thing about this project is that you do not have to be a serious knitter to make them. If you can make a scarf, you can TOTALLY make a pair of these fun hand-warmers.
Here is a great Youtube video from Howcast that will get you knitting and purling up a pair in no time.
Or if you want to skip knitting but are still willing to get your craft on, you could always try making a pair the "Upcycled" way. Basically you take an old wool sweater, felt it (by washing it in hot water in your washing machine) and cut off the sleeves. Here is a link to a great tutorial on The Cottage Home that will get you rooting through your closet looking for old sweaters.
