These are fingerless gloves that I knitted for my friend Nikki's birthday party. Well, actually, at the time I'd only gotten one glove done so she was a bit flummoxed to find only one glove in the bag when she has two hands, but I explained that I was working on the other one.
(Knitters work off of a completely different time table. It has something to do with alternate realities and wormholes and spacial distortion. Just take my word for it.)
I love the way the thumb gusset grows out of the knitting around the palm. I know it officially proclaims my status as Dork, but I just find a well-knitted gusset fascinating.
(Plus it's just fun to say "gusset". And "schappes". And "smock".)
I'll shut up now.
