Wristables? Maybe...maybe not

So, I need your opinion on something. I have been wanting to make fingerless mittens for a long time, but never quite got up the courage to try something so new for me. Last night I finally dove in and tried some. While I quite like them, they didn't turn out perfect, and they took me two nights to make. I'm sure it would be faster next time. Nothing is really WRONG with them except a few missteps that are easily corrected next time. They will still look the same, but the little imperfections I notice will be corrected. Anyway, what I need to figure out is, are these going to be worth introducing in my shop? I can make them in all sizes and colors. These particular ones are made of a really soft 100% cotton. I am going to wear this prototype pair and see if that material is going to hold up to normal wear. They are really comfortable and do keep my hands warm. I am thinking they are going to be perfect for using my camera. When I go outdoors to take pictures my hands get so cold, but I need my fingers to manipulate the buttons, so I am going to try these during the next product photoshoot, or just one taking pics of my kids, whichever happens first and see how I like it. Sorry for the night time flashy photos by the way. With two little ones it is quite an effort to get a photo shoot in during the day, so I try and save that effort for taking pictures of items I will actually be listing in my shop. Anyway! What do you think...yes? no? Try something different?

Definately yes! That would be something I would genuinely be interested in purchasing.

YES YES YES! Go for it! They look awesome and I had never thought about using them for taking pictures outside, what a great idea.
