|Supposed to be a match with the scarf....|
Anyway, there are nothing more exciting than to felt garments in the washer. Mostly it has gone really well.
But Finull yarn can be tricky to felt and I have no idea why. Well, I washed them on 60C first. They fitted a dinosaur. Once more on 60C. They fitted a small horse.
And the worst of it was that the red yarn felted into the white.
The bright white stripes was history and I decided to at least felt them enough to use them for snow shuffling.
|Before felting - huge mittens!|
Washed them with other clothes on 40C. Finally done felting - they now fit my hands.
My intentions was to knit a pair of mittens that would match my scarf design Dot The I. I simply has to knit regular mittens that need no felting.
Felted mittens are simply so nice to wear. And even if they get wet they are still warm. At least that is what I tell myself.
The pattern is an old pamphlet that is so badly written that I have to find out what they mean. Thankfully I have used it before for my rainbow mittens so I knew what to do.
Oh yeah, some times things do not go as planned. So what!!!
Just because something doesn´t do what you planned it to do, doesn´t mean it´s useless
