Keep your hands warm!
We keep our house pretty cool in the winter, around 66F during the day. My hands get cold, and its tough to hold a crochet hook when your hands are freezing :-) So today I whipped up a pair of fingerless mitts to try to keep warm. They work pretty good, so if you'd like to make a pair for yourself, the pattern is here:
This is a very simple pattern, and can be adapted to any size hand. Adjust the number of cuff rows you make to fit, snug, around your wrist. When working the palm, make it as long as you like. I wanted my fingers well exposed so I can crochet.
These were made with Lionbrand WoolEase worsted weight yarn and a size G crochet hook. Less than one skein made one pair.
Stay warm, and enjoy the crochet!
