Fingerless gloves

Knitting has gone by the wayside lately, but I got determined to finish these arm warmers/fingerless gloves/gauntlets or whatever you want to call them.

I first made this pattern (from Knitty) back in 2005, and I like it as much now as I did then. It’s super simple. You just make a 2 x 2 rib in the round, stick in a buttonhole for the thumb, and finish it up.

The tight stitches allow it to stay form fitting around the curve of your arm.

I think these might benefit from some embellishment, though. Any ideas?
