These are the mittens I have been making!!

My mittens are made from recycled sweaters.  They are lined with fleece.  The first pair that  I bought were from a craft co-op in Sackville NB.  I loved the idea of using old sweaters to make mittens.  I figured out how to make them and since that time I have probably made about 20 pairs as gifts.  I have refined the pattern and this fall I found a great video with a pattern.  The website is http://studio5.ksl.com/?sid=4456414&nid=61
This video shows you how to make them and also provides a pattern.  I changed the pattern pieces a little but the online instructions are easier then my original instructions.  These mittens are easy to make and very cosy.  One of the pairs that I have made are in British Columbia and one pair travelled to India.
