Are you a Fingerless Fan?
Al made these in the past two days, for a birthday gift. Cabled purple fingerless.
I love fingerless. I think it is because you can't run out and buy them very easily. They say, " I was handknitted baby, and I'm the real deal."
They show off a fine manicure. (Not that I've had one in a while. Too frugal to spend the money, but I am about to break down because of the old Chicago Cuticle Collapse that happens every winter)
You can fairisle them, cable them, or they can be plain and just as wonderful.
I know you have to make two, so there is some second fingerless syndrome,
But, in light of the current condition of my right arm, elbow, wrist, hand fingers, I just may make a splint cover. The cool purple straps I chose are nice, but imagine a fairisle fingerless splint cover. Or not. I'm suppose to rest this arm. So, as we used to say in college: let's not and say we did......
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
