My gorgeous girlfriend sent me a picture last Friday which made me laugh. 

First though, some background. Before Christmas, she asked me to make her some typing gloves. Pretty simple, flat knitting with a ribbed cuff, opening for the thumb, and open at the ends for the fingers to stick out and type. She asked for one modification - a flap at the top that could be pulled over when using the mouse. Pretty simple, and I knocked them up pretty fast. 

Apparently her socks got soaked on the way in, and having no spare socks available the mittens were pressed into service! I think that's cute. And innovative!
