    I have made several pairs out of fleece, they are soft, super warm and the best part they are easy to whip up.

    I made about 4 pairs of knitted ones last month; using a knitting loom. I might still have the link to the pattern…somewhere.

    You don’t need no stinking pattern. Get 2 sweaters or sweatshirts. Cut off the sleeves of one to the length you want them to go up your arm plus an inch or so. Seam that up. Snip a thumb hole and seam that up. Snip off just the wrist. Repeat thumb hole. Now being the fickle, changeable sort, I wouldn’t attach them so I could make them interchangeable. And you could repurpose the rest of the sweater into a pillow.

    In fact, now that I think about it, you could use tube socks too.

    Hmm, now I want a pair.

    My first thought was knee-high socks. Make it the same way you would a pair of Baby Legs and then cut and seam a thumb hole.

    Oh, you know what, Maria, making it like you would Baby Legs isn’t a bad idea. I’m going to try that. Thank you!

    Charlotte–I got lost. What part wouldn’t you attach?

    Love the ones on etsy. Also love the knitted patterns. My hands are so freakin cold this winter. I got a pair of fingerless gloves for xmas and I’m wearing them constantly. And since I don’t knit and I don’t sew, I’ll have to buy. Heh.

    I like my fingerless gloves I found at Ross for $2.99. I like them even if they are acrylic. Yes, I’m talking to you, Shannon Stacey <——acrylic hater and knitter who says she owes Angie a pair before she can even think about making me a pair of wool fingerless gloves.

    Hey – Thanks for recognizing my shop!

    I have lots of fingerless to choose from there, if you decide you don’t have the time or engergy to make your own!

    Some wool, some cotton, some chuncky, some lightweight – what ever you need!

    I agree with you on the shipping – that is why I don’t charge for shipping to US or Canada!

    I love etsy but I’m an instant gratification girl. So I thought about this for a minute. If you were to use pinking shears to eliminate unraveling of fabric and hack off the fingers of a cheap pair of thin fleece gloves, it might be an acceptable alternative …

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
