Mittens made for cold weather love

A British woman said Smittens, mittens she designed to allow lovers to hold hands in the cold, are now available for purchase online.

Wendy Fuller said the idea for the mittens, which feature two regular mittens and an oversized glove for two hands, came to her while walking in the cold with her husband, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

We were trying to hold hands through our bulky mittens, when it dawned on me to create a mitten that was large enough for both our hands. That way, I thought, we could truly hold hands, Fuller said.

Fuller said Smittens, which sell for about $34 on her Web site, were named by her husband.
