I have a thing for mittens. I really love to make them and since I live in a cold climate they really do come in handy. I guess it is the relative speed and the chance to do some fun patterns that appeals to me. I have to show the rest because the cuffs are so pretty.
I made these using a vintage flea market sweater that I tossed into the washing machine on 40 degrees C. I made a rough pattern by tracing around my hand and then cut out the very thickly felted 100% wool from the sleeves of the sweater. I sewed it up on the machine and these are some of the warmest mittens in town!
