This winter my favorite project has been fingerless gloves and mitts. I've made so many pairs! It's a perfect way to use up half-skeins, and you can make them as long or as short as you like. This pair was from leftover Lion Brand Amazing, and a simple pretty crochet pattern, "Fingerless Glovettes" by Sandi Wiseheart:
Also on the needles was a chevron scarf (pattern from Interweave Press' "Scarf Style"), using some lovely sock yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts:
As the proud owner of a massive stash of appealing single skeins, many of these sock yarns, I must recommend the wonderfully creative variety of projects found in "Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders".
