Granny Square Stripes Fingerless Gloves

So, with so many projects to weave in and even to complete and literally millions of presents to wrap, how exactly did I spend my weekend? Having lots of fun with Big J. and Little A. and coming up with a new crochet pattern. I'm really not good with chores, tasks and obligations. And, amidst all the presents, baby clothes and last-minute-oh-so-urgent knitted/crochet items, I've realized than, this year, I still hadn't done anything for myself. And, because I think that every crochet artist is secretly or quite openly obsessed with granny squares (as I am), I've decided to create these Granny Square Stripes Fingerless Gloves. Hope you enjoy them.
Portanto, com tanto projectos para rematar e mesmo para terminar e, literalmente, milhões de presentes para embrulhar, como é que eu decido passar o fim-de-semana? A divertir-me com o Big. J e a Little A. e a "inventar" um novo modelo de crochet. Não sou nada boa a cumprir com tarefas e obrigações. E, por entre todos os presentes, roupas para bebé e peças de tricot/crochet em-cima-do-joelho-ai-tão-urgentes, cheguei à conclusão que, este ano, ainda não tinha feito nada para mim. E, porque acho que todos os crocheteiros são, secretamente ou francamente, obcecados por granny squares (como eu), decido criar estas Luvas sem Dedos Riscas de Granny Squares. Espero que gostem.
