Magic Loop Mittens/Gloves Patterns

Does anyone have a pattern for Magic Loop mittens and/or gloves?  I make all my socks with a ML pattern and love it.  I've heard that there are ML glove and mitten patterns but I've not found any.  Can anyone assist me in this search, thanks?

Gauge for circular knitting

Here's a link (to a forum entry on knittinghelp.com) that talks about making gauge swatches for projects knit in-the-round. 

The method described involves knitting a row, sliding the work to the other end of a circular needle, then knitting the next row from the same side (leaving a long loop of yarn across the back).  Advantage: you end up with a measurable rectangle instead of a loop. 

Has anyone tried this method?  Are there other methods to recommend?
