Fingerless Gloves in Persimmon

I sat down the other day with an idea to make slippers.  I still have to do that, because the slippers somehow morphed into fingerless gloves.  I got off track somewhere, and rather than rip out the whole things, I just changed direction.  I love fingerless gloves for cool winter evenings at home in front of the computer - where I often find myself.  I couldn't possibly wear them outside - I am a mitten girl.  You can see from these photos that my hands were freezing!  All those reddened fingertips!  And it was a gloriously beautiful day in the middle of January in Montana - forty-two degrees!  But I was cold!  (It seems I love exclamation points!!!)

Don't you love the color of these gloves?  It's a wonderfully warm spicy shade of persimmon, and caught my eye right away at the Ben Franklin Store.

I am debating about whether I'll keep these for myself or put them in the Etsy store.  But I love that they are just an evening's work, and they're so cute and useful.
