I've put aside Concerto for a bit because of my husband. He happened to comment the other day that his fingers and hands were very cold. He turned the heat up in the house in an effort to get his hands warm, but it wasn't really working and my economical and environmental senses were screaming. "It's ok, I can make you some fingerless gloves." says I, confident in my knitting abilities. I had at first thought of taking a pattern I have for armwarmers and altering it, but after looking at it and consulting the husband, I knew it wouldn't work. The armwarmers only cover the bottom of the hands, and he wants something that goes up over his fingers. So I found a pattern and got started.
I'm really hoping the other glove goes quicker than this one is. Still, it's a great learning experience - and I have learned a LOT - and the husband is being very patient in waiting for his handwarmers. :)
