Fingerless Gloves

These guys were a LONG time in coming. I started them last year when I was on bed rest, completed one, and put the yarn and needles away. Moses has been asking me to finish them ever since, and last weekend I FINALLY made the other one. I'm pretty happy with how they came out, but the thumb gusset is a tad sloppy. I just switched from double-pointed needles to straight needles, knit a few rows flat, then rejoined it in the round. It is already getting stretched out and ugly looking. Oh well, I figure it's not too bad for my first try without a pattern.
I'm working on another pair of adult-sized gloves as a Christmas gift and am hoping to get a few thumb-gusset ideas from this awesome pattern. It's wonderful to be knitting again, though I'm also getting antsy to sit at the sewing machine. Not enough time to make stuff!
