These were for me! Fingerless gloves are just not good enough in the snow. Pattern; very modified London Eye Glittens, because I wanted a quick knit. Yarn; Debbie Bliss Fez, which was bought over a year ago. The yarn has fuzzed & pilled a lot in just a couple weeks wear so I would not recommend it.
