they look good, and you can also put a button on the back, so that the mittenish part doesn't bother you when you're using the one with the fingers =)

Ooh, good idea!
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Take that, Winter! Mitten Gloves on: November 17, 2007 09:11:55 AM
Woohoo!!! My hands will never be cold again!

I decided to make these last winter when I was standing in the below 0F windchill waiting for the bus. It was too cold for gloves, but mittens didn't let me use my fingers to get my bus pass out of my wallet. Mittens with fingerless gloves or whatever they are called inside would probably have been ok, but then my poor fingertips would be exposed to the cold. So I looked through my stash and realized that I had some sock yarn that pretty much exactly matched my Lamb's Pride yarn so I decided to pair them together to make these!
I used the sock yarn to knit some gloves with no cuff and I used the wool yarn to knit some giant mittens with no cuff that I later felted to make them fit nice and snug. Then I put the glove on inside the mitten picked up stitches through both parts around the cuff and knit down for awhile! Ta da!

 
The back

Pre-felted giant glove


I am going to add puff paint to the fingers of the glove to make it non-slip, unless someone knows of a product I can use that is specifically designed for non-slip-ness on gloves.  In my experience, fabric paint seems to stick to dirt much better than it sticks to surfaces...

I am also thinking of writing out the pattern, if anyone is interested.

I can't believe that you made the coffee dishcloth for your first project! That's so so good!  I really like the handwarmers, too. Your teacher will be very impressed!
