Favourite jumper shrunk? repurpose its sleeves!

Loved, loved this Noa Noa jumper given to me by a far away flatmate. It was constructed by two jumpers, one inside the other. Made of quite fine, but toasty warm mohair.

But!

Mohair felts, however gently you (hand) wash it, and eventually the two layers pretty much became one; plus it shrank quite a bit. I thought I could re-use the sleeves as handwarmers, just blanket stitching the cuffs over and a titchy couple of running stitches to separate fingers from thumb.

Took all of about 15 mins, and I get to keep (a remnant!) of the fab yarn, construction and colours
