Mitten Knitten;)

Here is another example of knit and felt goodness. These mittens, before felting, were so huge! Very close to the size of a sheet of paper. This project, if I recall correctly, required one 100g skein of wool (not super wash). These particular mittens are now in New Zealand along with one of my very nicest friends, Alison, who just moved to the north island with her family about one month ago. The mittens were decorated with a little bit of wool embroidery. The blue felt purse I made was from the same colour wool and was needle felted with a purple flower and had an oriental purple lining. Should have taken a photo....hmm. Also a very forgiving pattern for an unskilled knitter such as myself.
