Sometimes I need to crochet

I do not always need to rant, just sometimes. I started this blog to get my rantiness out, but also with the thought of putting some other things I do out there. This is me doing that:

The other night I had a big fun time out with friends, and I got a few compliments on my fingerless gloves. This made me happy as not only did I make them, it is also a pattern I came up with. I wanted them to be pretty with some texture to the stitch, but not so much texture that there were big holes that would fail to keep my hands warm. Here are a couple of not so great pictures I just took with my Ipad:

If anyone actually tries it let me know! I tested it once or twice, but I am bad at paying attention to written directions….even if I wrote them.

Also, I want people to feel free to make and sell these if they want. I would like credit for the pattern, and for other people to not sell it. I love the idea of crafters sharing and crediting each other, so:
