I started these last year. Made one, then added it to my "to complete other pair later" pile. A few weeks ago we re-arranged our computer area and I'm not sitting near a window and my fingers would be freezing after a few minutes. I decided it was time to finish these up.

The pattern is a combo of a few mitten patterns. I fell in love with the Endpaper Mitts but when I printed it out it seemed so long and daunting that I used a simplified chart that looked similar that I found online. I winged the first one and wrote down a few notes along the way. I'm a bit surprised I deciphered my notes well enough to complete the second one with out problems.

I really like them a lot and have been wearing them around the house. It does take some getting use to, especially while typing!

Thanks for looking!

EDIT 12/5/07 added pattern below-------------

This is the first pattern I've shared with others. That said, I hope it makes sense and doesn't include any errors. Feel free to post or message me and I'll do my best to help. Thanks and enjoy!

I made a pdf version for downloading as well: clicky

These are gorgeous! I love fingerless gloves/arm warmers, they're so useful. Yours are particularly lovely and warm-looking--I really like the diamond-pattern on them. So cute.  Smiley You did a great job.

Those look great!  I have a hard enough time getting two supposedly symmetrical things like gloves to come out the same much less with a year in between.  I would definitely wear super cute mitts like those.  Make sure you keep your notes for the pattern for future use.
