Knitting blogger purl3agony has designed a pair of fingerless gloves that are right up my alley. She calls them textured fingerless gloves, and they certainly are that.
These mitts combine a seed stitch edging with a traveling rib stitch along the arm part of the armwarmer and a slip stitch eyelet lace on the hand. She reports that this makes for a snug fit with a lot of interest, especially using a handpainted yarn like she did. Very cool (and warm, no doubt!).
