Fingerless Gloves or Mittens??

I have been working almost exclusively with cashmere the last month or two, at least for scarves, hats and fingerless gloves.  I have had a lot of requests for fingerless gloves lately.  The trend has finally spread to the Midwest!

This cashmere sweater is thicker than most.   

Cashmere is perfect for fingerless gloves, as the gloves  are often worn all day.

This sweater had a lot of embroidery on it.

I usually add some needlefelting or embroidery.

This sweater was lamb's wool but still very soft and works well unless you are very sensitive to wool.
