Hello December 2016

I have always been partial to mittens and this is my favorite pair. It is getting cold enough to wear them too. There is a small hole in one of the thumbs which I must repair before it gets any bigger. xo

Yes, you'd better get at that. They are worth it.

I have my beloved Granny's darning egg! Would you like to borrow it? Those are divine mittens!

You are the best!

Penelope -- Thanks for your generous offer. I mended the thumb of my mitten yesterday and it was a very tight space in which to work. Your inherited darning egg is a treasure. I don't think people mend much any more but it's a wonderful thing to do to extend the life of a beloved garment.
xo, Rosemary

Rosemary, you exemplify, "Use It Up, Wear It Out, Make It Do, or Do Without"....maybe not the do without part. You seem figure out how have it and to do it well but economically. Love your mits.
