My grandmother is the most adorable and thoughtful person in the world.

When she heard that my boyfriend and I were going skiing in Austria, she got really worried because of the cold weather. So for Christmas, she knitted gloves for both of us.

I opened the gift, hugged her and left the next day. Eventually, she was right about Austria: it was FREAKING cold. The first day our asses froze off at 7 degrees and I took the new gloves out of the bag, put them on and.. The left hand felt weird. Apparently, grandma knitted an extra finger.
