What i've Been Working on Wednesday

I've been doing tons of sewing & cutting, and will be doing more this week, in anticipation of my local craft shows coming up. Here's what I have completed:

The lone hat (I cut pieces for oodles of hats, but just haven't started the actual sewing yet)...


the merino runner's mittens...



the cashmere mittens...


the wool & wool blend mittens...


I apologize in advance if I don't post much over the next 2 weeks, but I will be busy with the craft shows. I'll do the best I can :) Feel free to post what you have been working on, on my Facebook page... i'd love to see it!

these are gorgeous mittens! I was wondering if you might have an example of felted angora/nylon blend. I bought a gorgeous blue 70% angora/30% nylon sweater at the thrift store and wanted to maybe felt and make mittens. Thank you.

Thanks, Melissa! Yes, i'll be selling them at my upcoming craft shows.

Chellis, Thanks! That blend should be great for mittens... will remain soft & pliable after felting. I can't show you an example of that particular blend, because I don't have any, but I make a lot of things with the more common blend of 70% lambswool/20% angora/10% nylon, as well as 50% lambswool/50% angora. Just an fyi, if it's "hairy" now, it will be hairy after felting. Some angora blends are hairier than others.

Your great sweater finds make all the difference in these mittens! How much do you charge for your mittens?

Resweater said...

Hi Cindy, I charge $15 for wool, and $18 for cashmere. The runner's mittens are $12,

Cindy said...

Wow, that's an amazing deal! Do you sell the doubler's seperately?

Resweater said...

Thanks! Yep, the doublers are $10 for wool & $12 for cashmere.
