I swear one day I will own some of this yarn:) and the first thing I think I will make will be either a scarf or fingerless mittens with it.
I love the the little white one to the left! He is so cute and that yarn is awesome!!

Awww, they're gorgeous! And thanks so much for sharing the pattern! You know, I'm totally nuts about knitting fingerless gloves, so I'll definitely give them a try soon!
Happy New Year!
