Fingerless Mitten

Did some felting this weekend with company and here’s my fingerless mitten.  I need to make the second one now.  The colors on both pictures are off from the actual mitten—it’s brighter but greener and redder.  I used 4 layers merino in white and 4 layers of the dyed roving which makes a sitff, supportive mitt. I made the pattern just a bit bigger then this wool actually needed so I’m going to slim it down for the next mitten.   I think it’d actually be great for wearing at night when I need wrist support but it’s a  bit too thick for everyday wear.  I’m going to make a second on 6 layers to go with it then keep tweaking till I get the thickness I want.  I played around with embroidering it in chain stitch and blanket stitch around the edges.   It’d also be great under a gauntlet at an event like Ymir:>.  This will surely keep my hand warm!  I will take pictures of the process of creating the second one and post it next.

      Thanks! They’re really comfy to wear, especially at night. The next set though will be of a wool that’s a little less prone to pilling. They’re getting fuzzy fast:>
