can be so much fun.Lately I've been sewing fleece mittens from leftover material and old fleece clothing. For the rib I've used old children tights.
Also, I pulled out an old sweater that I knitted many years ago. It had become a well-worn (the hem was actually ruined) from use when my children grew out of it. Yet I did not want to throw it away.
Now I have an aunt who fits in the sweater so I decided that either I would fix sweater or I throw it away.
The fixing looks pretty good and it it made the sweater more girly when the pink yarn was added to it.
The crocheted hem is also hiding all the ruinings so the sweater has become usable and will be fine in all kinds of out door games this spring and summer.
