Fingerless gloves make excellent gifts for u city-dwellers who use public transporation. Less cumbersome than full gloves and much cheaper than the super expensive heat-sensitive iPhone gloves, and way cuter in my opinion.

My sister loves knitting gloves, so I can't wait to show her some of these. Maybe she'll make me some!
