Some clothing just doesn't work well without a mate: socks, shoes and, of course, gloves. This time of year, it is particularly difficult to keep gloves together. Now, one woman is trying to reunite as many pairs as she can.

Jennifer Gooch, founder of, photographs found gloves from the Pittsburgh area and posts the pictures, with details on where each glove was located, on her Web site. This month, friends of hers launched a similar site for New York City's lost gloves.

She says she started mostly as an art project, but its practical possibilities have created quite a bit of buzz.
