have you any wool?

When visiting with my sisters, it's rare we can get away without working on a project together. One sister had collected a lot of wool sweaters at the nearby Cornell University dump and run sale. All the students who go away when school is out leave lots of good stuff behind. The school collects it all after cleaning out the dorms and has one big rummage sale. Because it's very cold in upstate NY during the winter there were lots of sweaters to choose from.

So with our collected sweater stash, we cut them up and pieced them together and made ourselves some fancy schmancy mittens. The lining is some soft fleece. I finished the last of my pair this week and can't wait to wear them while watching lots of hockey this season.
