|The mittens and the gift box for them. Also added some red love in the gift.|
Anyway, these mittens were knitted as a christmas gift for a friend. I have knitted them once before - and with a very bad result. They were huge.
|The year and my friends initials is knitted on the thumbs.|
I actually had to knit them on 1.5mm needles. I do not mind that - I am a loose knitter and used to that.
But I was very concerned about the size. They were too big. Only one thing to do.
I put them in the washer on 30℃ and hoped for some felting. They felted a bit - enough to be used.
The pattern is so beautiful. I love that there are two different motifs on them. And the pattern is extremely well written.
My friend is very happy about them. She was surprised as they were put in a wooden box so she had no way of knowing what was inside.
