After my niece picked out not only chucks (such a great taste) but neon green & orange chucks, I was inspired to make her some really hot fingerless gloves for Christmas this year.  I already wanted to make these gloves for her, but these colors really make me happy  Smiley  I hope she loves them!



I used the Stripe It Up Fingerless Gloves pattern on ravelry.  Free!

Chucks are a similar kind of sneakers to Converse, correct? If so, yea, those are totally rockin.  The mitts are going to look great with them! Such a lucky niece!

Yes, Chucks are slang for Converse All-Stars  Smiley 

If anyone cares, the yarn is just Caron Simply soft Brites.  They have the best colors and good prices, I love that brand!

Thanks!

Ah, it is a slang term! Thanks for the info (learn something new everyday!)  I agree with you about Caron's Simply Soft line, it washes up super soft and is a great, versatile and machine wash/dry yarn!  I think this is probably my favorite acrylic, although Red Heart Soft is up there too (although slightly larger gauge than the Caron SS).
