In a previous post, Finding new uses for scrap yarn, I discussed how it’s common for me to end up with small balls of yarn after larger crochet projects are completed. This last week, prompted by the fact that my hands are often cold and that I still have leftover balls of yarn seeking practical uses, I decided to design a pair of those fingerless gloves that seem to be so popular these days. The first time I saw them, I thought they were funny, but the reality is that fingerless gloves keep your hands warm and your fingers free to punch cell phone buttons, turn keys in door locks, turn book pages while reading a book as a car passenger in a cold car, and yes, you can even crochet with them!

This, then, is my finished project for Week 12 of the 52 Weeks Challenge. The gloves took less than 2 ounces of yarn to complete, and are now available in my Etsy shop, JN Originals. Looks like I better crochet another pair for myself, though…my hands are still cold!
