These are for my Mom: but not a Christmas gift. She complained that her hands get cold when she’s at her computer. This was my first time doing this; I hopes she likes them.
Yarn: Koigu (color is grey/purple/green)
Needle: US 0 (2 16" circulars)
Pattern: Pomatomus Gloves http://rineke.blogspot.com/2006/12/pomatomus-fingerless-gloves.html
and CookieA’s Pomatomus Socks http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html
Through Ravelry, I found modifications that made it easier for me: only doing Chart A, & replacing the plain stockinette stitch in the glove pattern with the twisted knit rib of the sock pattern (nice and stretchy across the palms).
