Sometimes you don't know you need something until someone else tells you. I visited my LYS last week, and the owner told me how great fingerless mittens were. I confessed that I never really saw the sense in them. After all, don't you want your fingers to be warm? Well, she explained how great they were for driving, rummaging in your bag, and even shopping.
When I left the store, I really wasn't convinced. But she had mentioned they knit up quickly and I am in need of ideas for knitted holiday gifts. So I turned to trusty Google and came up with several patterns. Obviously I found one. This is the photo of the first fingerless mittens I made. I've now done multiple sets and can't imagine how I ever lived without them!
