My closet is full of sweaters that I have not worn in years. I have no idea why I hold on to them. Every once in a while, I pull them out, try them on, confirm that they are still either out of style or completely stretched out, and put them right back where I found them. What can I say? There is something special about a warm, comfy sweater, something that makes you want to curl up with a good book and mug of hot chocolate. Maybe that’s why its so hard for me to get rid of them. Maybe that’s also why I fell in love with this project. (I originally saw it on Martha Stewart’s blog, but it has since been taken down.) Finding a new use for my favorite old sweater certainly gets it more action than its currently getting in the bottom of my closet, and makes room for new clothes, a winning combination!

This post has inspired me to collect old sweaters from as many people as possible, and then donate the mittens made from them to homeless shelters and charities in need. If you are interested, please read the Lend a Helping Hand post, or contact me at NikkiInStitches@gmail.com
