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.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Yarn is my craft drug of choice

I love these because they DO look like chainmail!

That's absurd, I love it!
