Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta For Today

Well all wonderful blog readers of mine...here's my submission

Hand In Glove

The young kid on the subway train was super happy to pose for this for me. He thought it was cool that his hand would be somewhere online. :-)

It's a little hard to see, but if you look at the hand furthest from the camera you'll see this is a glove-mitten.

I don't know about you but I thought this was the neatest idea. I heard recently that our hands stay warmer with mittens than gloves. But what adult can use mittens...we have to do things with our hands all the time...especially in NYC. You're fishing for your metrocard, or money or cell phone.

These gloves are semi-attached yet come off and pull back and let you use your digits for whatever you need and STILL cover most of your hand.

I asked where you can get them and was told H&M. I see a trip to that store soon on my list.

Carrie's Fiesta is on!

Just love that you asked someone you don't know if you could blog about his hands!
Cool mittens! Bet my kids would think they were cool.
Happy Friday!

Those gloves are really nice. I think they keep your hands a bit warmer.

I have little use for gloves or mittens. I live where it is 80 degrees most of the time. I have one set for times when I visit the frozen north.
I do love H&M, thought.

Gloves are the last thing I wear even when it's very cold, I hate the feeling of them and bear the cold as long as I can, but these are a good idea :)
