Well....there you have it!

Although I was knitting as fast as I could I soon realized that my wrists were not going to make the 'knitting mitten deadline' for Chicago travels. keep my family's hands warm I was off to Goodwill and the Salvation Army.  I turned these fine sweaters .....

into these fine.....
Mittens for Taylor

Mittens for Carly

 Mittens for Barb

 Mittens for Chauntel

Mittens for Corinne

and, Mittens for Brent

I love working with wool, especially wool from felted sweaters, and the felted fabric from the cashmere and angora sweaters were simply fabulous to work with.  Now everyone's heads, hands and hearts will be warm in Chicago celebrating Corinne's 21st Birthday! 

I'm happy !!
