Team Gloves for Football Season

Sometimes you get a little tired of making the same old things, you know?

But sometimes, you like the same old thing, and really all you want is a bit of a change.

I've started making fingerless gloves in team colors. The stripes make it more interesting for me, and I think, more interesting for others as well.  Here are a few that I've tried:
