Gloves finished

It's gone really cold here so I got out my scarf and gloves to wear this week. Then I remembered that I hadn't shown you the latest gloves that I made. I showed them to you when I'd started one a few weeks ago but then forgot to update you.

These are crocheted and I've deliberately not finished off the ends of the fingers as I like to use them to get money out of my purse or use my phone. Yes, I'm still playing Pokemon  Go (level 16) when I remember!!! 

Last winter I wore a knitted pair that I'd made where the fingers were knitted upwards for just a few rows. I loved them but the fingers still got cold on very cold days. This new idea may prove better but only time will tell. Anyway, saves taking them off (and losing them) when you need to get money out of your purse. 

This is a free pattern I found on the internet but, obviously, I had to translate it from American to English crochet terms.

Those look great, Jane. And that is a neat idea leaving the ends open like that. It definitely will help with catching Pokemons.

Good idea, I'll be interested to hear if it works in practice. They're pretty, will brighten a Winter day.

very colourful! - there are also patterns for gloves which have a kind of flap over the fingers , secured with a button, so that you can undo them if you need your fingers. A sort of envelope for your hands.

I thought of doing that but decided to go for simplicity! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!!

I like these! And only the tips of your fingers will have chilblains.

Lovely gloves and should be perfect for shopping or Pokeman.

I've knit and crocheted mittens, but never gloves. I like your idea of keeping the tips open!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
