I met Mona on the beach trip I took with my art pals a few weeks ago. Mona basically sat in this chair by the window the entire cold and rainy weekend and made these amazing gloves. It took her all weekend to make them and as I watched her I wanted them more and more. There is just something so great about owning something beautiful that you watched someone make with their own hands. They were perfect too, since it was so cold. I just love them and only had that one weekend to wear them, because of course on the day we left it got warm and sunny. But I will have them for the coming winter and I will most likely wear them every day!
They are made from wool sweaters that she recycles and they are fingerless. She also gave me a pair of recycled thin gloves for inserts to make them extra warm. I can't believe I am already looking forward to the cold days of winter, but I want to wear my gloves! They weren't exactly inexpensive, but worth every penny, because I know how much use and enjoyment I will get out of them. That's why spending money on art is so worthwhile!!
