World’s Greatest Mitten-Glove Design for Photographers

Kate Spade Mitten Glove ©Kim Smith 2013

I am just crazy about this mitten design because of the handy flap, which when flipped back, reveals a fingerless glove. If you want to wear it flipped back all the time the button and loop closure keeps the flap securely in place. The mitten-glove even has a convenient separate thumb flap.

The only tweaking this design needs is a slightly bigger button and loop because when your hands are freezing, the small loop and ball button are a challenge to negotiate. For all the knitters who read GMG–these would be wonderful in a cashmere or alpaca blend and perhaps a pretty cable knit pattern.

The mitten-glove is a great design for photographers especially. When wearing gloves, I find it easy to accidentally press the wrong button or get myself into an unwanted mode.

Even with mitten-glove configuration, my pooch and I only lasted about ten minutes in the howling wind when we went for our daily afternoon walk yesterday—straight to the bottom of our hill (Pirates Lane at Smith’s Cove) and straightaway home. Sorry Rosie the Rocket, you’ll have to get your crazy energy out on our next walk!

  1. Even if I did not know who was posting this, recognized those great gloves, need to get myself a pair

    Donna–these are still on sale on the Kate Spade website, and also come in a pretty blue and green colorway.

  3. I have a “manly” set of these I bought from the Army Navy store in Salem Mass. less than $10.00. Used by USMC Snipers.

  4. I got a pair of manly ones (blue with big brown button) for my mail carrier for Christmas a few years back.

  5. HouseDoctors says:

    Replace the button with Velcro. I’ve had a pair for years with the velcro and they work great.

  6. These look very “handy”! I love the last photo of the sunset. Exquisite!
