Striped Fingerless Gloves

So after I finished my striped beanie, I picked up my knitting needles again.  I wanted to make some fingerless gloves for one of my nieces.  I told myself I had to use a free pattern and yarn I already had in my stash.  So thanks to past projects and ravelry.com I was able to meet both of those requirements.

I challenged myself this time and tried knitting in the round using several double pointed needles.  It was definitely trickier than using a circular needle!  I managed it, but my stitches between needles seem to be a little looser.

This niece has a fun personality all of her own, and the red and black definitely suit her.  She loves Tim Burton, is an amazing artist, and has a fantastic imagination.  

I did a fair isle pattern for the cuff and fingers, then a basic striped knit pattern for the body.  I need to stop doing so many striped patterns.  I DO NOT like weaving in all of those ends!

Now on to another pair for her sister!  I'm hoping to try a cable pattern this time.  Am I crazy?
