I love having fingerless mits! It is great to type on the computer in a cold room. I used the Malabrigo Sock in Eggplant. The color is beautiful and the yarn is always a pleasure to work with. Along with cable needles, I used US 3 DPNs, but I am really a loose knitter. I have modified the pattern to have individual fingers, just because I enjoy more freedom. The pattern from Vogue Knitting Fall 2009 is great and works out well!
