I've been seeing variations of this fingerless mitt pattern from Cats-Rockin-Crochet (http://cats-rockin-crochet.blogspot.com/2008_04_01_archive.html) around lately, so I thought I'd whip up a pair.  I plan to use 'em for those chilly nights sitting around at the computer playing video games:

I made them 7 rows longer than the pattern, and I figured out a way to make the beginning chain more comfortable.  I have some notes on that on my blog, if anyone is having problems with the beginning being too tight.

Now . . . let the gaming begin!

No more blog + no more facebook = more time for crafting!

I'm also JenGoPop at Ravelry.

I actually like your version better then the original since you added extra rows and made them longer.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
