I have a problem with Koigu: I love it too much. I won't even go into my adoration in this venue, but check out these fingerless gloves. I based these on an article I read in Interweave Knits, Winter 2003. It took one skein only and I use these all the time on my morning outings with Chuck and girlfriend. They have been in the wash and in the dryer and are still hanging around. Love them!
