New Gloves

No-Sew Fingerless Gloves
Approximate time: 20 minutes

Start with two long socks that need some repurposing, likely due to a hole in the heel.

Cut in the middle at the length you would like it. Cut a hole for the thumb.

Approximate time: 2 minutes.

Next, attempt to take a picture of both of your hands. Will require a flat surface, the floor, and your ability to bend yourself into a pretzel. Repeat until one of the pictures turns out remotely ok, or you throw out your back, whichever comes first.

Approximate time: 18 minutes.

Total time: 20 minutes. And an Aleve.
