Fingerless Gloves

A couple of years ago, I made a dozen or so pairs of fingerless gloves.  My neighbor got a pair and then she wanted some for two of the elderly women she cares for in their homes.  They were good to wear indoors, I heard; comforting for arthritic hands.

They are also good little projects for the knitter.  I sort of engineered a pattern that worked and remembered at some point to make a few notes.  Now I can make a pair without having to calculate the distribution of finger stitches every time.
