My first pair of fingerless gloves... Done!

Pattern:  Emilee Dee Mitts (Pattern link can be found HERE)
Yarn:  Berroco Comfort DK in a sage green color.  Great for hats and mitts!

My first pair of mitts or fingerless gloves. I don't know what to call them.  I've always thought it would be fun to make a pair of these but never have since I could not see myself wearing them, nor did I have a friend or family member in mind who I thought would use or enjoy a pair.  But... several months ago, on Ravelry, I stumbled across a group called "Mitts of Steal".  The group link can be found HERE if you'd like more information.  It's a group which makes mitts like these for dialysis patients who suffer from cold hands.  I did not know that dialysis patients suffered from cold hands.  I am making a goal for myself to make four pairs.  I really like the lace pattern in this project and plan to use this pattern in a pair of socks sometime soon.  It looks like cable stitches to me, but the lace portion only calls for yarn overs, ssk's, and k2tog's.  Nice ribbed effect and nice eyelet.
