Sock upcycle

One of my sisters has some arthritis in her hands and finds keeping her hands warm in the winter helps. I thought that some fingerless mitts might be useful, so I had a play with a pair of woollen socks that accidentally went through a hot wash and ended up shrinking and felting a bit.

I cut off the feet and turned the cut end over and used a double needle to finish and then made a button hole that the thumb fits through.

I think they will work, so they will go in the post tomorrow.
