Quick question... does hansker cover all manner of gloves, e.g, surgical, dish washing and winter gloves? Thanks! :-)

Yes, though you'd use compounds to specify the first two ("latekshansker"/"engangshansker); "oppvaskhansker"), unless the context was clear enough to make it unnecessary.

both gloves and mittens are "hansker" in norwegians, both are correct

"Votter" would be "mittens" to be exact.
