Maybe it is because it gets so frigid cold where I live, but my fingers need to be kept warm most of all!

I searched for "vegan gloves" on etsy and I'm on page four so far and none of the gloves have fingers!

(I did find an adorable pink kitty hat with a black bow. You can never have too many cat-ear hats.)

My favorite mittens that I have are fingerless gloves, but they have a fold-over mitten part that can button back. It's really useful when you need finger control, but your hands will still be cold.

I've had mittens like that in the past, and that is like the best of both worlds. Someone needs to sell those on etsy.

I actually just got my first pair of armwarmers/fingerless gloves a few weeks ago and I'm totally in love with them. For one, they're sort of sexy, but they also let me type and highlight things when I'm at school and freezing my butt off because they keep the A/C going all year apparently. I wouldn't wear them out when it's below freezing though!

I bet they sell so many fingerless ones on etsy because they're just easier. I don't know how hard it is to knit a finger shape, but it looks hard.

I like fingerless gloves. Not for when it's snowing and ridiculously freezing, but just when it's cold and I have to use my fingers. I'd rather just have cold fingertips than entirely cold hands.

For example:
-typing on my computer
-knitting
-doing something on my ipod (probably playing games)
-driving

Good point!

I also have the mitten/fingerless combo. They're warm and useful because mittens get in the way sometimes.

All good points, joyfulgirl! I'll wear the fingerless ones I just got as a present for the activities you mentioned, and the mittens for when it's forty below with windchill.

I like fingerless gloves. You can keep them on to count your change or take notes, or use your Iphone. Fun fact about Korea: it gets too cold for fingerless gloves, so in the winter people carry around sausages to use their tactile screens. True story.

I pretty much only wear fingerless gloves. If it's really cold I just keep my hands in my pockets when I'm not using them.

Wow. I'm going to use this fun fact to entertain people tomorrow.

I just bought my first pairs of fingerless gloves off of Etsy. One long pair, one short. I wore the short ones to the Farm Sanctuary Walk this weekend. Unfortunately, they are already fraying.

It gets really cold in my apartment in the winter and I plan on wearing the long pair while surfing the internet and doing other home-body type things. Hopefully it works out!

Totally (except I can't knit, waah). My hands ache when they're cold. I pretty much wear them fall through spring!

Ha, cooked I think - they're sold ready to eat in convenience stores here. But I think either would work.

It is hard and tedious.

I like fingerless gloves because I knit, and they are useful for that. After a while, you will begin to loose feeling in your fingers if it's really cold.

I knit & wear fingerless gloves! I have really long fingers and most gloves with fingers feel as though my fingers are being pinched...

A bit of a tangent, but my grandma once told me this cute story about how they used to carry baked potatoes in their hands as they walked to school in the snow. They'd hold the potatoes to keep their hands warm and nibble on them as they walked. Breakfast and handwarmers!

When you're doing horse stuff fingerless gloves are a must! trying to do up a bridle or pick out hooves with fingered gloves is often about as easy as wearing giant Muppet hands! Same with gardening, you need your fingers as they are. I do like the ones that have the fold back mitt though, that way you can cosy your fingers up as soon as possible!

If you have arthritis, fingerless gloves are a lifesaver around the house or in cold classrooms.

I never thought of wearing gloves when I wasn't walking around outside, so this thread has made fingerless gloves make a lot more sense to me. Thank you PPK for solving life's mysteries! ; )

Me too! I've never found a pair of gloves with fingers long enough for mine, so then some of the part that's supposed to be on my palm is up on my fingers (awkwardly), and the whole thing is not covering my wrist as much as it was meant to. I am a fan of the fingerless/mitten things (supposedly called "flip mittens").
