Because yes, it's an obsession. Thought I'd explain it a little bit!
This obsession is kind of a carry-over from my early days of crocheting and knitting. I'm not a huge fan of mittens (you can't DO anything in them!) or gloves (unless my hands are extremely cold). Gloves without fingers are old-fashioned yet functional, edgy yet elegant, and they're unique.
Plus they look awesome on some famous characters.
Gandalf is the ultimate fingerless-glove-wearer, in my opinion. He's never seen without them while he's Gandalf the Grey and I think they're awesome. I aspire to make a pair just like them someday!
Anyway, all this for the excuse to list two more fingerless gloves listings in my Etsy shop. Heh.
purple knit gloves // $28
blue knit gloves // $28
Thanks for indulging me by reading this post! I encourage you to go knit or crochet some gloves - these honestly make such great stocking stuffers. I have so many patterns for them in my Ravelry! (Some of them are free, which is even better.)
