more mitts

I am unable to settle on the right term for these: fingerless gloves, fingerless mitts, or just mitts.
Any other ones I am unaware of?

These are the Maine Morning Mitts from Clara Parkes' book The Knitter's Book of Yarn.
Made on January 1st, with 1/3 of a skein of malabrigo worsted, and size 7 needles.
Crafty Girl loves them so much she says "I'm never going to take these off". I drew the line at mealtimes.

These next ones were done before Christmas 2008, I gave them to Elissa Halloran (mentioned in the previous post). She makes astonishing jewelry, and these allow her to work with her hands while keeping off a chill.
My own handdyed, to test it out. Worsted weight merino superwash, size 7 needles, pattern in my head.

I am piling up the posts a little so you have something to read. I'll be very busy next week, including being glued to the TV on Tuesday, Inauguration Day. On my day off. What could be better??
