How can I reuse or recycle … random odd gloves?

gloveIt’s getting to that time of the year when we pull all our winter gear out of storage for re-use and the annual glove-pairing gala begins.

Do gloves migrate north for the summer? And do some of them get lost on the journey there or back? That’s really the only explanation I can come up with for how I seem to end up with so many odd gloves, lacking a partner.

Or perhaps my grey and turquoise mitten got distracted when I moved house and is still flying back to the old place – but that was six years ago so it should really get with the program.

Anyway, whatever has happened to them, I now have a few random gloves and mittens. I could start an odd mitten/glove wearing trend – like with odd socks in the early 1990s – but I doubt it will catch on. Any other ideas about what I can do with them?
