    You are a funny beastie, Peter DeWolf!

    Do you wear the mittens with the string that goes up your sleeve and around your neck? I wouldn’t want you to lose a mitten!

  2. Max says:

    Mittens are to winter what flip flops are to summer. They just go on different extremities.

  3. Peter says:

    jenbun: The ACN and I got matching mittens for Xmas. Hers have the string. Mine don’t. I was a bit disappointed.

    max: Perhaps. But, I feel much less strongly about flip flops.

  4. yellowdart says:

    That pretty much covers it for me, but what is your position on Glomits!? (The mitten/fingerless glove hybrid?) The masses MUST know!

  5. Clink says:

    We may both write grammatically correct texts but this is where we differ, DeWolf.

    Mittens make me feel claustrophobic.

  6. Peter says:

    yellowdart: I feel like they are trying too hard to impress everyone. They seem like the type that would put out to try to make people like them.

    clink: But… But… It’s like a party for your fingers and everyone is invited.

    Mittens? Eh…Peter. I don’t know.

  8. yellowdart says:

    But Peter, they are the best of both worlds! The finger dexterity of gloves combined with the cozy comfort of mittens is a match made in winter apparel heaven! I cant see the downside. Besides, mittens are pretty much just a glorified sock…just sayin’.

  9. lspoon says:

    They make mittens that turn into gloves. Did you know that? The mitten part is a flap and the gloves are the ones with the fingers cut out. Perfect for the random times you need finger flexibility…I think :)

  10. lspoon says:

    Apparently yellowdart and I agree on this issue :)

    I have to take a split approach. (This might be the Libra in me, I don't know.) Mittens are great for being outside, when your fingers need to huddle together for warmth. But when driving, I need to feel like I have more control than mittens can provide. Mittens feel too clumsy for driving but I still require the protection of a layer between my hands & the frozen steering wheel. Or, well, I did. I took a different approach all together: six years ago, I simmply moved to Florida. =P

    you are wrong. convertible mittens are the truth and the lights see here.
    Think of it, all of the warmth and finger togetherness of mittens but with the dexterity of gloves.
    I win.

    I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m sitting here thinking “I bet that lamb needed his wool more than Peter’s hands needed that wool.” I’m starting a campaign:

    “Lambs ain’t fer yer hands!”

    My mother bought me fancy leather mittens for Christmas that have secret, microfleece glove fingers inside. I should send you a pair.

  15. tiff says:

    I wear mittens because I enjoy flipping people off while driving, but do not enjoy getting shot. This way – everybody wins!

    Although recently I was tempted by a pair of leather mittens that were gloves inside. I can’t explain it – it made me feel all funny inside.

  16. 123Valerie says:

    The locksmith who broke me into my car told me mittens made better sense because they keep your fingers closer together and, thus, warmer.

    You go, boy.

  17. Michelle Ann says:

    “Feels like little lambs hugging my hands”…love that!

  18. Hellafied says:

    I don’t know how or why, but you just gave me the goofiest smile.

    This was delightful.

  19. thestoryofagirl says:

    Mittens, mother fucker, MITTENS.

    I could learn to love mittens, if I had ones like your’s. I could learn to love anything if it was like little lambs hugging me.

  20. sid says:

    But … gloves … they … each finger … warm!

  21. Niki Nielsen says:

    I am a firm believer in mittens. And I’m not just saying that!

  22. jamelah says:

    This morning it was so cold that I was afraid that if I blinked, my eyelids would freeze together (do you think that’s possible? I mean, I know it’s most certainly not, but still, wouldn’t that be weird?), and by the time I got to my office from my home (and I believe I’ve told you all about my long commute), my fingers were so cold they hurt. And I was wearing gloves. So I think I may be moving into Camp Mitten.
