Warming up with handspun

Back before Christmas, I got a great deal on a cute little funnel neck coat
(From Old Navy of course). And it's a nice deep, deep plum that just happened to go with one of my favourite hand-spun hats. (Spun by Mom, knit by me)
But sadly, I had no mitts of gloves to match. Fortunately, last year, Mom gave me a second skein of matching yarn for just such a purpose. So while Dave was off making music yesterday, I  got one glove done.
It's using the same "pattern" as Dave's, just sized down. So I'm thinking I'm going to have to put together a basic mitt/glove pattern for release. Just something simple you can use as a base for your own mitts and gloves.

Of course, I've got to finish that second glove first...

I:d love a glove pattern that I can understand at the finger part. I suppose if i can knit a thumb gusset on mittens and fingerless i should be able to master a glove. Tips?
I love your beret

I love that hat. How lucky Mom had more handspun for gloves!

I LOVE the gloves. Especially that each finger is a different shade :)
