Fingerless mitts, one pair done, two pairs to go. I'm feeling good about finishing 2 more before Christmas. I'd say they're not too bad considering my fingers were dry and catching on the yarn. How-to outline. Next pair will be brown. Which color would a guy in his 30s prefer? Grey or brown?

If the guy is a "suit and tie" guy, probably brown to match any brown shoes he might wear. I personally like purple, but I am weird. :)

What colors does he normally wear? If he wears mostly black, then the grey, If he goes for browns and tans, then the brown. Or by hair color, if he has blonde or grey hair then the brown. Brunettes can wear either (these are just suggestions as there are so many factors to color). The mitts look very warm.

I'm partial to gray, myself, but that's because when I was growing up, my mom told me that Chinese people don't wear brown! My sister wears brown all the time, though. She's a rule-breaker.

I agree with Jean, what color does he wear the most...especially Jackets. Of course if he isn't into fashion...gray matches with just about anything. Brown, not so much.

My boys all prefer I'd say gray :)

They look great. My son is 32, and he would prefer brown if you're offering. ;-Þ
