And today's project is:

Another pair of fingerless gloves :) The pattern is called "fitted mitts". This is yarn I dyed myself- first with a million colors of wilton frosting color and then overdying with Jacquard black to even out the tone a bit.

I love these. I started them while sitting on the runway for 3 hours due to "snow" in Newark, and the first one was finished very quickly. The second took a bit more time because I never sat and worked on it. The gusset for the thumb was very easy to do, and makes a much better fit than my other mitts. I also made the "mitt" longer on these for more warmth, but they roll down for typing. I like the extra length of the arms too.

I think I'm ready to try gloves with actual fingers

I don't think you showed me this yarn, did you? It sure worked up pretty! I think these mittens would be awesome in that tiger striped yarn you were lusting over!
