Felted mittens finished
Pattern: I did some research on construction using the library and internet, and then I made a pattern based on what I learned. Felted Knits was a good source of information on how to knit cuffs from the felted hand portion. I later learned from TECHkntting that there is an easier way to approach this. I made the cuffs long enough so that they could be worn long up the sleeve or folded down. Twisted Knitster asked how I came up with the flower design. After pondering the design for a few days, I did it free hand taking cues from what felt peaceful and pleasing, not forced.
Yarn: Lambs Pride for the hand, Mountain Colors for the cuff, and tapestry wool for the embellishment.
This came close to what I saw in my imagination and I am happy with them. They fit me perfectly. It is like having a piece of the creative part of me come out where I can see and touch it. It was a grand adventure.
