DIY No Sew Fingerless Gloves In 2 Snips!

Wow! Where has the time gone?

Thanks Vic for the sweet comment on my last post.  That was so kind of you to take the time to comment and see if I'm ok.  :o)   

I'm ok... actually I'm great.  Just super busy.  A promotion at work, finishing up my masters in June, and my Etsy shop has been busy and it's satisfied my creative outlet lately.

I have been super chilly in the evenings lately... Can you believe that it's been in the low 30's in So Cal?? Tomorrow night they are forecasting 30! Brrrr!!!   It's been so cold that today I browsed around on Etsy for fingerless gloves and I found some inspiration on the recycled listings. 

Fingerless gloves are awesome because they don't slow me down.  I can still bake, work on homework, type, do laundry and wrap Christmas gifts all while having warm hands!  Yay!

Here's how I made my own DIY fingerless gloves in 2 snips...

I made these with toe socks I had sitting around.  I think the concept of toe socks is great, but I found that my toes get really cold in them.  My 10 lil piggies like keeping warm by staying close to each other. :o)

# 1 Snip the toes off.  This part gets worn up by the elbow.
#2 Snip a straight line for your thumb to go through.
Annnnnddddd.... You're done!  It's that easy!
You can make these with sweater sleeves too.  I prefer socks because they are snugger on my hands and arms.

Yay!!! You are back. I was beginning to worry. I have a few pairs of toe socks around the place that my kids don't wear (I think it just takes too much time getting their toes separated)so now I know exactly what to do with them.
Thanks, and please be around a bit more often. I love your ideas.
Merry Christmas
