My Granny is now...errr...87 years old. Yup 87 and still going pretty strong LOL.
But like most older peeps she feels the cold in her extremities...just not enough to wear gloves in the house cos then she can't do her crosswords.
SO...fingerless mits...gives the warmth of mittens with fingertips and thumb free to hold her pen.
She already has a bright pink pair I made for a tester size, but she needs at least a wash and a wear...so here's her 2nd set.
