Knit Your Own Fingerless Mittens

How sweet is my Grandma. She knitted me these fingerless mittens last week.

Charity shops and jumble sales are great places to pick up odd balls of wool which you can use to make your own gloves, mittens and scarves. With Christmas fast approaching, now is the perfect time to make some for special handmade gifts.

My godmother also knitted these for me for my birthday.
