Making Mittens from Recycled Sweaters? Re-purposing.

Making Mittens From Recycled Sweaters?  Re-purposing.

I don't have a wool Sweater lying around, but..........would love some input on this.

Has anyone tried it?  Has anyone seen this method before?  So would you be limited to a pair of mittens from one sweater because you're cutting it from the ribbing that would at your waist?

Might a sleeve be large enough for a small pair of mittens?

I can't say that I'm a fan of the 3 cross stitch type X's or button, but ...What about the general idea here?  Is a sweater sufficiently think enough to provide enough warmth for hands?

I post this with all my questions in hopes of getting some good input from all you who visit Bridge and Beyond, even if you're not a knitter or crocheter.  Is this an idea that would help us donate more mittens?
