“Mittens, mittens, mittens!!”

Description from puppychick labratbecky: I was at the craft show yesterday, did ok, but nobody was spending much money.... what I did see, though, was a TON of mittens made of boiled wool from recycled sweaters! I guess that was the idea of the year! Out of about 100 crafters, I would guess at least a dozen were booths piled high with these mittens--all colors, all mixmatched, all the same design!! kind of blew me away! Since I basically saw them in my sleep last night, I thought I would show you what my view from the craft show was. :)

    Gorgeous mix of colors in your mittens! Did your ever read the children’s story, “The Mitten” by Jan Brett? That’s what I thought of immediately when I saw your title!

    Yes! I had forgotten about it, though, until you mentioned it! My aunt gave my kids an autographed copy when they were little. Aren’t you a retired teacher? Of course you would know a good book! :)

    Beautiful colors. Must have been a pretty dream even it was a bit annoying.
    I have one boiled wool sweater that I get to wear every other year IF it gets cold enough. I LOVE the feel of wool on my skin. For me, it’s texture-y but not itchy.

    Gosh, you made me see the deluge of mittens. Glad you had some success at the craft show, too. Your choice of components is anything but boring, though – - great pick !
