Thanks for the recommendation. I have been giving this type of set-up some consideration, and my neighbor, who knits extensively, has offered to make me a pair of fingerless mittens. I like this arrangement since my fingers are never fully exposed to the elements. But, I am still open to other suggestions as well.
