Q&A with dragling

Crafty Kealy asked:
These turned out great! It's good to know that you can just bind off the stitches at the opening for the thumb, I think that's what I'll do when I find the time to make a pair of these.
dragling answered:
Thank you! I ended up really liking them as well. Binding off the stitches was way easier than dealing with the thumb gusset and looks just fine. My favorite pair of fingerless gloves has a thumb like this, so I figured why not? :)
