Laura’s Gotta Have!
Fingerless gloves are a novel concept. I’ve found them a valuable asset in many situations.
- You can use your touch phone, pad, etc. without need to remove them like regular gloves.
- They keep your hands warm in the house (even in the air conditioning) while maintaining your dexterity which is impossible when wearing regular gloves (i.e. sewing = hand quilting and embroidery and typing on the computer).
- They add an extra layer of warmth to your hands when worn over regular gloves and without extra bulk in the fingers that occurs when two pair of gloves are worn.
- They are warm worn alone outdoors before it gets cold i.e. fall and spring.
- If wearing the gloves and your fingers get a little chilly, simply slide the glove down over your fingers – it’s warm inside there.
- If your arms get chilly in church or class, put these on and roll them up – beats carrying around a sweater (and losing one).
- A single glove makes a nice muff. You can fit both hands and forearms in.
- If your skin is sensitive, bruises easily, tears easily, long fingerless gloves will help protect them.
- If you have an injury to your arm that requires bandaging, fingerless gloves will hold the bandages in place and keep them clean.
- If you have to wear a wrist support, fingerless gloves will fit over it and make it look more palatable.
My Pink gloves are made from a tank top I love but has 2 bleach spots on the hem. The pink stretchy lace is from the tank top. I removed it and added it to the glove
‘Hoot’ peeking through the thumb hole was not planned. The first time I turned the glove wrong side out, there he was looking at me. What a sweet surprise.
