Yarn or Fabric, have you thought about knitting them flat on the machine, and then seaming them up?  I think the Irish Hiking ones are knit like that, but by hand.  If not, there's another cable pattern that is...  But basically, you just knit a rectangle that's the length of the circumference you want, seam up from the bottom to where your thumb would go, skip an inch and a half, give or take, then seam up the very top.  Easy Peasy!

Sewers are for ninja turtles--seamstresses are for sewing Wink

You guys are trying to tempt me with a new project.... I see how you are!  Naughty naughty!

I had not thought of sock yarn.. that makes sense... and I can totally make them on the knitting machine if I were able to get to it lol.  My craft room is in pitiful shape - I know, it's nothing new but seriously, it is REALLY bad right now.  I actually decided not to use pink yarn because I couldn't get to the closet.  I decided on a raspberry instead since it was physically in view.... I know.  I will eventually run out of projects that I can use the yarn that is easily gotten to then I'll have to clean the craft room ... seriously though, cleaning is on my to do list but it's a big project - I have to clean the bedroom closet to get the yard sale stuff out so that I can put my yarn stash in there so that I can refold any unproperly folded material.... sigh I think it's almost endless but I know if I break it apart in to smaller jobs, it will all happen...

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I haven't actually sat down and made a list of my 50 for 2011, but I have sort of a mental list started. (Yeah, cause those mental lists work SO WELL Roll Eyes )

1. Finish bellydance costume for photo shoot January 22, this will come in under the wire an hour before I'm supposed to be there.
2. Make reusable shopping bags out of plastic-fiber mesh sort of material gleaned from kitty litter bags.
3. Make new supply of reusable menstral pads. (Tons of flannel to use up.)
4. Embroider handkercheifs for Mom's birthday.
5. Crochet afghan for Dad's birthday.
6. Crochet afghan for my birthday.
7. Assemble book shelves, paint and fill with books.
8. Immediately purchase and assemble another set of book shevles because I will be out of room on the first one.
9. Make some ATC's and participate in a swap.
10. Start my own zine.
11. Make denim "crazy quilt" out of old jeans that have accumulated around the house.
{Started during that hideous Super Bowl half-time show.}
12. Start new bellydance costume for show on May 1. (Pink or orange sherbert colors, maybe both.)

I love fingerless gloves!  they are as involved and complex a knitting project as I can presently handle...   Undecided  also, they're punk rock!  Grin

Oooh, zippecar, I love the idea of making oneself a birthday present!  sadly, my birthday is close on the heels of my daughter's, which is close on the heels of Christmas.  Also, I have a twin, who requires a present!  /sigh

fingerless gloves for the mailman...excellent idea!!!  and I'm glad for your sanity that the rib stitchin' is finished!! Wink
Onto more projects!!! Grin
Is there a link to the crocheted version of fingerless gloves...perhaps??  I do have some sock yarn laying around... Roll Eyes  I could stitch some of those up this year for gifties!! *Is that on my list of thigs to do???*

I have a binder that my daughter used and drew on...I keep folders and paper in there for current swaps.  When it is done...I ShoUlD be filing them..but haven't.  I think I may fold them up and put them in my Junque Journal.

Three projects finished.

Red flannel half-apron, lace placed on the pocket tonight. (ok, so I still need to snip the threads off, but I could go wash dishes in it if I felt up to it)

Crocheted fingerless gloves, nice and form fitting, very stretchy.

One hot pad, two more to go. Made entirely of stash yarn. Smiley

One project done. I finished painting a cabinet. I'll post pics soon.

And I love the idea of making a birthday present for myself. I've bought them for myself before, but ever made anything. Hmm... I may have to do that.

OMG guys!!! It's taken me 3 days to catch up with all the awesome posts! I can't believe how on the ball everyone is! I just started some cloth pads today, but I seem to be suffering from some serious distraction this evening. That and the Canada's playing Russia. Try focusing on one thing during that! I also added a those wool dryer balls everyone was talking about to my list. And a bag for my yoga mat. Maybe a bag for it will make me practise more??? Tongue But back to the game and sewing....Cheesy
