Crochet Finger Protector

For some time now, the biggest obstacle to increasing the amount and speed with which I crochet has been limited by one factor: I happen to like having skin on my left-hand pointer finger, where the yarn loops over.  I imagine most anyone who crochets or knits can sympathize; the shiny groove of skin that itches or stings or some maddening combination of the two.

Last night, I came up with the idea of using a piece of plastic (a former bottle safety seal) to guard the skin there.  But after a little while, I realized that a single-finger 'glove' would do the job perfectly.  Hence, the Crochet Finger Protector was born!

I am now offering the pattern in my Ravelry store here!
