Felt For Mittens

Sometimes it is really important that things are matching. Like scarves and mittens. And shoes...
I mean, I could not wear my new favorite scarf without having mittens in the same colors, right?  

What would people think? What would people say? LOL!! I am only joking. 

I couldn't care less about what people think. I am far beyond that wearing a colorful scarf in this country...

So, I decided I wanted a new pair of mittens in those wonderful colors. In stripes as in the scarf.

I found a pattern for stranded mittens and simply knitted them without pattern and on thicker needles.

Simply to felt them afterwards and to have a thumb gusset. I think that is the best for my hands.

I used the same yarn and the same stripe pattern as in my scarf. Although I am not fond of knitting mittens this was a quick knit. And fairly easy.

Had to felt them two times in the machine to get them felted enough. Felting can be a little tricky. Better to do it twice than end up with baby mittens...

I love wearing both my mittens and the scarf. I simply get happy and smile.

So don't ever underestimate the effect of knitting somthing you love in the colors that makes you happy. No matter what people think or say.

2 things:
If it makes you happy, do it
If it doesn't, then don't
