Fingerless gloves are great and they don’t necessarily mage you a Scrooge either ;D
These playful patterns for hand wear are a wonderful way to keep the palms of your hands warm, while still letting you have enough dexterity in your fingers to do whatever it is you have to: pick up your house keys, type an SMS or sign your name. Of course, they can also be a fashion statement, regardless of their warmth.
