I find this ironic since last Valentine's Day, I bought the boy a pair of fingerless gloves from Hot Topic (I then had no crochet skills). They've since worn out, so what else would make a better gift than...new gloves!

Armed with the knowledge of how to slip stitch and single, half double, and double stitch, I embarked on a mission: to crochet fingerless gloves out of some yummy (but challenging) yarn the boyfriend picked out with my trusty 6.5 MM (read: beginner's) hook. I confess, the hook was probably too large, but I have enough yarn left over should he want them to not let as much air in.



Booyah, baby. They're nowhere close to perfect, but I'm very pleased since I worked with a self-drafted "pattern" (which was really a lot of trial-and-error, honey-does-this-fit-right stitching, frogging, and re-stitching).



My attempt to get a better picture of the dark gloves (they're black-and-whitish-gray) in the darkened a la dorm lighting room.



No rly, they is fingrless!



One more shot, this one of the gloves on my roomie's desk. When the boy gets them, I will attempt to take better pictures.

Oh, and since I didn't feel like making another post for another one of my lame-o projects, here's a little cuff I made using some cruddy yarn and double crochet (which I love the look of):



Yes, yes. Thank you. Grin No, really, thanks for looking. <3

Nice gloves. They look really warm.
