Here are two different pair of fingerless mittens I recently finished knitting using "left-over" yarn from other projects. I think they might make nice gifts, especially since we all love to text/etc with our smart phones these days.
I love the lace pattern on the lighter blue but it isn't quit as form fitting as the darker blue. Perhaps in the future I can combine the two patterns. For the light blue one I used the pattern Swan Maiden Mitts by Holly Terrell and left over Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn.
