This is my newest creation (well- the newest one I've gotten around to posting). They are bright pink fingerless gloves made from some merino I bought in Italy on vacation. I've been too nervous to use it before now, seeing as I'm used to cheap acrylic yarn, but I decided to go ahead since they're for a friend. I feel a little silly giving them to her now (her birthday is in July), but I figure she can use them later when its not 95 degrees and 100% humidity.
Anyway, I made the pattern up and if anyone wants it, let me know. They were pretty simple to make, as the only semi-difficult part was figuring out how to make the increases.
Thanks for looking!
 So in an attempt (which I think worked quite well) to make these more interesting, I decided to use duplicate stitch to create a diamond pattern with small amounts of the same yarn in different colors. Here is the finished project I gave my friend.
Here's my attempt at a pattern. I've never written a pattern for another person before, so let me know if its missing something. Also I made this to fit my wrists (6 1/4 in. diameter) and my hands (7 1/2 in. diameter), so you may want to measure and resize if necessary. My hands are also very long, so you could shorten the stockinette if you need to.
