As winter rolls forever onward I am increasingly finding single gloves which have lost their partners, mittens discarded by Evey because they are “too little for me now I’m nine and grown up,” and an odd array of single hand warming items that end up in our home, even though they didn’t start out here.

We can’t give single gloves away to the thrift store; there is no way to recycle them where we live, and I don’t want to put them in the garbage. In previous years this has resulted in me keeping the gloves until my husband finds them and throws them out, but this year I have a plan. I am going to use them for crafts, and if I can’t craft something fabulous in the hand-covering department, I’ll start from scratch.

Here are some of the most fabulously cute mitten and glove crafts just sitting out there on the internet waiting for you to discover them. Get to it. Click, craft, repeat, oh and come back here to share your triumphs with me.
