A find!

Have you ever put on a coat that you haven't worn for a while?  What do you usually find in the pockets?

Last night it was pouring with rain and here, in our part of the world, we would normally be in Gore-tex.  But last night, we were dressing up a bit and so we dug out the classier raincoats.   I only found a tissue and a paper clip in mine.


Anne was luckier...she found some silk mittens.

I made these about 10 years ago from a pattern I found in Piecework magazine.  This was when I discovered the Silkweaving Studio on Granville Island.  They have the most beautiful silk yarns - and gorgeous woven garments and accessories. 

I have wondered for a long time where these mitts had gone to.  It never occurred to me to look in a coat pocket!

This has to be one of the strangest finds ever! Wouldn't it be funny to post a blog on things we have found in pockets? The mittens look in good shape, had you not worn the coat for ten years or just not looked in the pocket? I've never heard of silk mittens; is silk very warm? Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

What a lovely surprise, for both of you!
I'm off onto that silk website now!
Happy Thanksgiving, even though you've already celebrated it, and we don't celebrate it at all here!

Those are beautiful, and I would imagine very warm as well. I found my favorite pair of leather gloves in a coat pocket not long ago, I though I had lost them. I also found five dollars once in a long forgotten coat.

At a big dinner lately, the men were laughing about finding the the menu for the previous years dinner. But still better than a funeral bulletin.

That is luck! Doesn't that pattern remind you of Monkey?
