    Our electricity was out for 3 days, got pretty cold in our house. I learned why these fingerless gloves would be a good thing to have.

    Don does it again! This is totes awesome and I am going to do this as temperatures dropped here to the point where just looking my thermometer gives me vertigo. Thanks for taking the time to put up instructions, you’re the best :)

    Curious, I was just making gloves from jumper sleeves… (cannot pass by a good material knit, or throw away…). Mine unfortunately is not ribbed, your idea is great… I had better haste as here it’s got really chilly and snowy! Thanks for sharing!

      I get to wear my scarves and gloves a handful of times in Sydney. European holidays and trips to Melbourne help!
