well, even though it is getting warm, we have a basement that is ALWAYS freezing. This is where my dad does most of his work (he is a geologist/mining engineer and is often down in the basement looking at old maps and analyzing rock samples). He also spends a lot of time at the computer listing patented mining claims and writing contracts and such (I think it all sounds boring, but it is his dream job). So, I am making him some cabled fingerless gloves. They are going to be gray/blue denim-y color. I hope he likes them.
He will be able to type with them and still have warm hands.
