For some reason my computer wouldn't let me comment on your blog, so I'll post here.  Don't know why you got negative comments there, because I think your pattern is great.  Sure some people don't know how to read a chart, but yours makes perfect sense to me even without the written explanation.  I'm going to have to try your method of adding a thumb, it sounds smart.  And you could even knit this flat, splitting it between neddles 2 and 3, then seam it up after.  Thanks for sharing your pattern!

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Thanks so much for that, I was up at 6 am so upset that someone was unhappy with the pattern! Oh well, the corrections have been made all the same!

I really like this way of adding a thumb, I really don't like picking up stitches. Never quite looks proper.

I'm glad you enjoyed the pattern, I can't wait to see some finished projects!

This looks super cool!  I've put it in my dreams pile for when I can actually knit this (not sure if the day will ever come! lol!)

I have a new blog: http://makingitwell.blogspot.com  I'd love for you to visit Smiley

just to clear things up, in case i had upset you on your blog, i think it's a great pattern and easy to read, i just don't remember by heart all the abbreviations of the different kind of stitches you can make IN ENGLISH. i'm starting to be quite fluent in Finnish but would like all the patterns to have the meanings of the abbrevations handy, because most of them do, so why not all of them.

and hey, don't lose your sleep over any mean comment anyone gives you! you must remember that towards one positive feedback there's like a hundred (on the internet, no kidding) who just kept their mouth shut even though they loved it! and you ALWAYS get more negative feedback than positive at the beginning.. it's really nothing to worry about and definately not something you should lose any sleep over, since that tute is awesome and so are the armwarmers!!

Cool pattern! I just faved it on Ravelry....it's much easier to knit wristwarmers in summer than knitting jumpers!

I really like them. I was looking for finger-less glove pattern to make. I think I'll try your pattern. Cheesy
