As the title suggests, I am looking for a fingerless glove pattern suitable for a quasi-beginner.  I plan on going camping up north towards the end of September and again in mid-October, and it can get a little chilly at night, so I'd like something for sitting around the campfire once the sun goes down. I can knit and purl, I've taught myself decreases and yarn-over increases, and if there is an example of how to do it on the internet, I can pretty much figure it out.  I've never knit in the round, but I don't have any aversions to learning. However, I get bored pretty easily, so I'd prefer something that can be knit up rather quickly (as in an hour or so a day and 1 week or under for both).  Does anyone have any suggestions for a pattern, either on Craftster, the vast interwebs, or in a book? Thanks in advance!

Well, if you're not adverse to learning, I would recommend Fetching.  They're done in the round and have cables.  I have a pair that I just love.

If that's a bit more than you want to attempt, you can just knit up a rectangle, with the width being the circumference of your arm, and seam it up, leaving a hole for your thumb.

Oooo, those are really cute, but alas, I do think they're a little more than I can handle at the time.  I might try them once I go back to school (I teach high school) and have someone to help me through it (we have a knitting club).  I'm still going to print it out though, so thanks!

Thanks!  I was looking for something with a built-in thumb hole, but I might try these.  I think I'd want them longer though, so I guess I'd probably do the stockinette a bit longer.
