I promised to make some fingerless gloves for the drive-thru at work this weekend (before it gets too terribly cold), but I've been more into my swap (Christmas stocking swap-check it out!), so I used "Thick 'n' Quick" yarn with a size K hook.
Pics first, tut. second:
(BTW, sorry for the bad pics; I don't like bright lights in my house and no flash either  Undecided but you get the idea)...
action shot!

Thick'n'Quick yarn (Lion brand, I think)
size K hook
something with which to cut

Make 2 (unless you're missing a hand/arm or you wanna sport the Michael Jackson look).

Foundation chain
slip knot, then ch 25 (more of less depending on the length you want...this will be the length from your forearm to about halfway to your thumb on you palm)
Row 1
sc in 3rd ch f/hook, sc in all remaining ch sts, ch 2 & turn
Row 2
sc in 3rd sc f/ hook, sc in all remaining sc sts in row, ch 2 & turn
Rows 3-12 (add rows for a wider arm; I'm smallish)
repeat row 2 until you have 12 (or desired # of) rows
Do not ch 2 & turn in last row
Joining row
sl st to join row 12 (or your last row) to row 1 (will make a tube)
Beginning Hand round
@ end of sl st joining row, work about 15 sc sts around top of tube (once again, add sts if your hand is larger than mine)
Thumb hole
ch about 4 sts, then join w/ sl st to beginning of beginning hand round (once again, if your thumb is bigger, add sts)
Ending hand rounds
work these stitches on the inside of glove to maintain the stripey effect I had
sc in each sc around, then sc in 4 (or all) ch sts, work 1 sc in each sc around until 3 rnds or desired height of glove
cut yarn w/ a couple inches tail, then weave in ends

PS- You can see where I got my general idea at the following link: http://melaniebug.tripod.com/suzetta's_fingerless_mittens.htm

Great job! These look so easy; I'm definitely adding this to my to-do list. Smiley
