We Still Need These.........

As much as I wish it was Spring, it is not and won't be here in the upper midwest for several more weeks.  So that still means winter coats and mittens.

Several Christmas's ago my hubby gave me a pair of mittens made from recycled sweaters.  He paid a fortune for them and I love them.  Since then I have seen them in several upscale boutiques and I thought how fun it would be to make some.  So I found a tutorial here and made several pairs as Christmas gifts and then I got several  custom orders. 

I now have all my friends thrifting for wool sweaters for me.  I really love making these.  Wearing these fun mittens is the only part of winter I will miss.

Stay warm!!!!!!!!!
