Thanks for that, Vee! If my hands are cold when I away from house, I use my Leather & Cotton Knit Gloves I used to wear whilst competing in Horse Events at Royal Show. They're toasty warm, & v e r y comfy! Cheers!
No I don't have any fingerless gloves but then where I live it is so rarely cold enough to need gloves. I imagine they would make things easier to handle but if it's cold enough to wear glo es at all surely it's cold enough to have fingers in them.
Yes - I literally live in them when it's cold. They are the difference between my being cold or nice & warm, and I can still do everything as my fingers are free to move. Though I don't just wear 'normal/plain' gloves - I only wear the Thinsulate ones. I cannot recommend them enough. They have the special lining that makes them really toasty. Can be expensive at some stores, but if you have a Dimmeys store near you they are only $3.99! Thinsulate also make beanies and other things - really try to find some if you suffer from the cold.
They’re really handy in winter while trying to get change out of ones purse. I don’t have any more. I don’t need them in our Sydney, NSW, winter anymore because they aren’t as cold as they used to be, but I will need them in Melbourne, Vic, when I’m visiting family down there, every winter.
I dislike the look of them and wouldn't wear them only because my great grandfather used to wear grey woolen ones and they were never clean and with his unshaven stubble he also looked dirty to me so as a kid, it used to make me feel sick.
Yes, they are great, I can actually do stuff whilst wearing gloves and partially keeping my hands warm. The only downside is that it is usually my fingers that feel the cold, rather than my hand.
I am a square dancer, dance halls are always cold, and wearing gloves made it difficult to do the hand movements, fingerless gloves have made it possible, so I no longer put people off by presenting them with an ice block to hold, since the gloves stop my hands from being so cold.
