So as many of you know I love to create items from recycled wool sweaters - here are some of my latest and greatest!!! Fingerless gloves - seriously, I can't get enough of them!!! I love the look of them and there are endless possibilities when using felted wool sweaters. I would love to hear what you all think - both the good and the bad!!!
CHEERS Smiley

This is a short pair I made - the sweater felted up so small - but I love them anyway.


For those not afraid of color.


Cashmere love!!


Blue and brown stripes - what could be more lovely


Snowflakes - this sweater was such a great find!!!

Those are awesome! I have so many old sweaters that are either to big/small or just worn out and this totally inspires me to try and make some sweater gloves Smiley
