Pastel Fair Isle mittens - upcycled from a LL Bean lambswool cardigan. Heart buttons on the cuffs …
Sewing started at age four with my pale aqua chenille bathrobe, which needed a large plastic mocha colored button.
I love the idea of something becoming something else. On vacation in the Adirondacks I found mittens made from the identical sweater that I bought 32 years ago, and still own. I had to buy them, and soon after thought …I can make these too….and take them to the next level…embellishing many of them with appliqués of outdoor images.
I hope you like them. I made them just for you because… like a snowflake… no two are exactly alike!
For winter walks in the forest…for hikes around the lake.
Be warm! -Valerie
