  1. Those are great - guess I have to learn to knit now - LOL!! Currently I am making my fingerless gloves out of repurposed wool sweaters, but I still want to learn to knit.

  2. Hi! This a great pattern! Did you ever get a chance to measure the gauge? I am using a different yarn and want to make sure it matches up! Thanks so much!

  3. I placed a link on my blog to yours. This pattern was wonderful to knit! Thank you for sharing!!

  4. This is a great pattern!! I love it. I made these for my girls and they love them. Thanks so much!

  5. Hi Vallieskids,
    Was wondering if you could give me stitch amounts for an adult version...I love the way these look.

    I have never made fingerless gloves, these don't look too hard but just need to figure size.
    Thanks for your help...

  6. I'm on my second pair of these. This pattern is great, thank you! Same request as above, can you give us the adult version for this pattern. I know several of my friends who would love these too, but they are grownups. :)
