Sewing mittens

 A new stocking.  The one I just sewed is the second from the left.  You can see how I used the sweater:
I had several sweaters shrink because of being careless with wash, one cashmere...  So, I cut out mittens out of the sleeves and sewed a stocking out of the body.
We got this book out of the library today.  It's dated 1964.
And more mittens sewn from sweaters.

I have boxes full of shrunken or worn-out sweaters from which I would like to do this sort of thing. I love The Mitten! I don't know why I haven't got a copy in my home library... it would make a nice Christmas present for one of the grandchildren....
