When I was designing these wrist-warmers and had finished my first sample, I put one on and asked my darling hubby what he thought. Having had a lukewarm interest while I was working on my sample he sighed (just a little bit as I was interrupting his football) and turned, saw them and exclaimed with a smile:
‘Cool, they look like gauntlets!’
