The Benefits of Being Miserably Ill

Actual knitting progress!

Of course they should be blocked and all that -- blah blah blah -- but there they are, completed!

I followed standard instructions for fingerless gloves in Interweave, incorporated the lace interlac stitch from Vogue Knitting, made them opera-length, trimmed them with crochet in the funky fuschia mohair, et voila! My own funky fingerless gloves, actually in time for winter.
