Smitten with Mittens!

Last year, the interim Pastor's wife at my church had a mitten work shop. She showed us how to make adorable mittens out of old wool sweaters. They are a fun project... I love to make them, I just have a hard time sitting down to focus on it! I have tons of wool to pick from (Goodwill and thrift stores are a great place to find 100% wool sweaters!). The first pair I ever made are practically worn out because I have worn them so much at work(they are a thin wool). I've posted a couple of pics of my current pair. They are pretty plain, but I like them that way. There are many ways to apply buttons and designs, or just simply use a wool sweater with a pattern! I have made many pairs as gifts... and plan on making more for the upcoming year. They really do make great gifts... and homemade gifts are the best kind!

Let me know what you think!
