I can't believe that I forgot to post these. I completed them back in August and they have been just perfect for the cool Fall and this bitterly cold Winter!
This is the only decent photo I have of them and I did eventually finish the thumb gussett. I used Renaissance Yarn on size 7 dpns for my narrow hands and wrists. This project really whipped up quick and I'm not the fastest knitter but I managed to complete these in about 10 days! All other details can be found on Ravelry.
