What does one do with a shrunken wool glove, or for that matter, a single without it's match or a glove with a hole? Surely, I cannot bear to throw these away! Just thinking about the amount of work that goes into knitting in the round for the five little fingers of each hand! Since I have started knitting and sewing, I have so much appreciation for the efforts that clothe me and my family. Materials which have used energy, time and precious resource to exist.
So, here I have one glove that no longer fits any person in the family after having several accidental trips in the washing machine, and a one of my gloves which has a huge hole. The kids and I had a fun time finding ways to recycle them.
Spring is on my mind!

Finger warmers - the NEW look! The kids all wanted a golden ring.
Mia's heart goggles complete the look. Recycling is fun!
