Knitting and technology go hand in hand, literally, with this ingenious pair of fingerless gloves. I've knit a secret inside, that when plugged into your computer's USB port will begin to warm up your hands in no time!

As someone who suffers from Raynaud's Syndrome, my hands freeze and go completely numb throughout winter, even indoors. I wear fingerless gloves while knitting, working on the computer, well, pretty much always. Even then there are times I can't get my hands warm enough to function. My husband, a computer scientist an all around tech geek came up with the USB cable system while I designed the knitting prototype, and a perfect marriage was born, kind of like ours, except he's still on dish washing duty during the winter!

The cables are 64" long so there's plenty range of motion while plugged in, even if your computer sits on the floor. You can even plug into your laptop while sitting outdoors at your favorite coffee shop to people watch while borrowing internet connection. The heating elements are easy to remove and install, so these can also be worn as regular fingerless gloves (with a secret compartment to hide stuff) without the cables.

I've knit the gloves with an extremely soft eco-friendly yarn made of recycled plastic bottles and rib stitched each end to allow for extra stretch. If you would like these made in a different color, fiber or size, feel free to contact me.
