Lately, I have been intrigued by the idea of using recycled goods in my artwork.  For instance, my "SmittenS" collection of environmentally friendly mittens are made from recycled wool sweaters that have been washed and felted then lined with polar fleece.  They are sure to keep your hands toasty and dry.
