mittens from sweaters


Of course this mitten idea came from good old Martha Steward.   And of course I LOVE THIS IDEA!!!   I have several sweaters that have been hanging around, waiting to be transformed into something. 

First up was a soft gray sweater that I had shrunk in the laundry  I was pretty sad when that happened, but it was something I found at a thrift store, so not too too sad.  The first mitten turned out.....uh... bad, but the second turned out great.   Whew....love a quick learning curve.  I used the hem of the sweater as the bottom of the mitten.
Next up was a blue wool sweater that was always just a tad too tight and too warm for me to wear (also from some thrift store many, many years ago).   I cut it up into 4 mittens.  A set for me and a set for Kaylee.  A little lace, cuz I'm fancy like that.

I'm not a huge mitten fan, but you know how the steering wheel is so cold in the morning?  These have been the perfect thing to wear this week.
