Fingerless mits - latest upcycle news!


Remember the mauve angora sweater from previous blog?

Well I chopped off the sleeve ends and embellished them with a colourful yarn - eh voila!

A neat pair of fingerless mits!

They might prove useful in this cold weather.

Hello Twiglet
The mittens and bag are fantastic. I'm about to make a bag out of an old pair of jeans (a challenge from my best friend)

An idea for you try with your felted knitwear...how about a tea cosy?

Oh a lady after my own heart, I got a pair of fingerless mitts and two very nice 1920's style hats of of a cashmere sweater that had a hole in the elbow.
Well done.
