Flower Mittens

Flower Mittens, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

I've been really busy recently making Christmas presents for my family and friends. It's finally been light enough today (just!) to take some photos. here's a pair of felt mittens for my Grandma. Made from a felted butter coloured angora/merino jumper, I have needlefelted a flower design onto the front. They are gorgeously warm and comfortable- in fact, I want to keep them! The mitten pattern is from Betz White's brilliant book, "Warm Fuzzies". It's such a simple pattern, only three pieces and even with my dodgy sewing machine technique, they've turned out really well.

Snowed under

I'm so busy with school and my Christmas knitting that I haven't rally had a lot to put on the blog lately. More will be forthcoming after Christmas, promise.

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to some time off work for a bit of a rest. I put lots of spinning goodies on my Christmas list so hopefully I should have some new toys on the 25th.
