Things that Work - Glittens

While in St. Paul, Minnesota before Christmas I was browsing in an outdoor store and found these glittens.  I'm not entirely sure that's a word, but these glove-mitten hybrids are neat.

Minnesota has it's reputation for a reason. It gets cold there. It also gets just as cold in Northern Colorado, but not as long. That means my fingers had been getting cold in my gloves.  I considered buying a pair of mittens but I really don't like the limited dexterity.

These Glittens have taken a little getting used to, especially the handling of car keys.  The real test however, was while doing ranch chores this weekend, I had the appropriate warmth and dexterity for filling feed containers and moving bales of hay.
