Years ago, my gamer boyfriend asked if I could make him a glove, to alleviate the soreness from his mouse-hand rubbing against the desk for hours of gaming. After going through four or five different test patterns, I think we’ve got it about perfected! The gamer (who is now my husband) REFUSES to sit down at his computer unless this is on his hand. I've made one for myself as well, and after a month or so of use, that permanent red callus on the heel of my hand is nearly gone!

These aren't just for gamers - I'm hardly one myself - but are fantastic for anyone who spends hours a day pushing a mouse around! Unlike mouse pad wrist-rests, the glove moves *with* your hand. ;)

The palm of the glove features special double-thickness stitches, creating a nice solid cushion for that back corner of your hand that always gets rubbed red. With repeated use, the wool in the yarn may start to felt in this area - this makes it even denser and cushier! An open-grid stitch along the back allows for some ventilation, so your hand doesn't overheat while wearing the glove. The cuff stretches, for ease in getting the glove on and off (without the need for pesky buttons, which are always impossible to work one-handed).

• This specific item is shown in the first three images - the last two show similar items, in different colors/sizes. My hands are tiny girly hands; it will fit a man's hand much more snugly!

• This is a SINGLE man's size, right-handed glove. (If you need a lefty, I can do those too - just convo me!) While the stitches will stretch and shift to suit your hand over time, this size is just right for the husband but HUGE on me! If you have any questions or concerns about sizing, just convo me! I can always adapt my pattern to make something suited to you.

• This glove is made from 100% Superwash Merino Wool
Nice and squishy, very smooth wool. Softens even more with use and washing! It has just a tiny bit of shine to it, making the stitches really pop. I haven't road-tested this yarn quite as thoroughly, but there's really no other word for it than good and "squishy" to work with!

These gloves are machine-washable! Lucky you! I'd still recommend using cool water and a gentler soap, and definitely the gentle cycle. (Though I'll admit, some things I've made were thrown in with a regular load of brights and came out fine!) Tumble dry low, or lay flat on a towel. (Don't fret - I always send care instructions with all crochet items purchased.)
