こんばんは。How’s it going?

Last year, I bought a pair of wool gloves for camping, after seeing them wear something similar in Yurukan, and have recently started using one while I am on my computer. My right wrist and hand tends to get cold on the desk when using the mouse, and for a while I was using a folded-up scarf as a makeshift wrist-rest and barrier between the cold desk and my wrist, but it always a bit in-the-way and would often slide off the desk and onto the floor.

Then I thought, “Why not use the glove?” Not only does it keep my hand warm, but it makes moving the mouse around a lot easier! And if my hand gets too warm, I can simply take it off and use it as a small wrist-rest that slides on the desk along with the mouse. It’s truly a game-changer for me.

I’m not sure why it took so long for me to figure this out, since I sometimes use a thin micro-fiber half-glove to use when drawing on a tablet or iPad. But I guess that is just for getting smoother lines when drawing, and not for warmth or comfort.

Anyways, if you also suffer from cold mouse-hand, maybe this will help. 😀

I hope you had a great day!
