I am officially in love with gloves. I made a pair of fingerless mitts for my dad for Christmas, then tackled cables (so fun!) with Fetching from Knitty.
For my newest project, I found a vintage British World War II glove pattern on the Victoria and Albert Museum's website, and I'm customizing it for my husband. He requested a pair of trigger finger gloves -- he wants the right index finger to fold back so he can wear them at work. He doesn't like the fingerless kind because, well, his fingers get cold. So I'm putting a horizontal buttonhole in the index finger.
I haven't gotten very far on the project, obviously. Teeny tiny yarn and teeny tiny needles will make this slow going, and teeny tiny black yarn in a poorly lit house is hard on my eyes. I need one of those miner-style headlamps to wear while knitting at night!
