This was my first attempt at doing fingers. I pleased with how they came out, the second pair were made fingerless to save time (I'm v. Impatient) I modified them slightly from the original pattern (of which I've included a pic of at the bottom) as they were Ghastly.

Comments? Critisism?

Cute.  Love the black and green (it's one of my favorite color combos).  And they're a great improvement on the original.

Yes, they're MUCH MUCH MUCH cooler than the original. 
I really loooooove the first pair!  I like the colors (they remind me of the band Type O negative).
I am lazy as well, so I understand why the second pair doesn't have fingers!  What type of yarn did you use on the second pair?

What type of yarn did you use on the second pair?

The green is Sirdar suede look dk (acrylic/polyester mix) and the purple is Stylecraft Stardust dk in capricorn (acrilic/polyester/nylon mix) both the colours are actually much deeper and richer that the photo shows.

they look pretty cool - though the originals look suspiciously like something that would show up on 'you knit what?' Cheesy
