I made another pair of Mitts. My stepmom called after Christmas and ordered two pairs (like I'm some kind of online store, lol). She said, "I need a pair that matches my hat....and a pair I can smoke in." So, OK, here is a pair for her to wear outside to smoke in. The ones to match the hat next month, I think, if I don't get ahead of myself which I am wont to do!!!
Lastly, I tried felting, which to my surprise went remarkably well. I guess i didn't realize how easy it is to felt something. I did follow the instructions and if you've read any of my posts I am not necessarily a "reader" of instructions. I'd say I am more of a"viewer" of instructions. If it has nice, instructive pictures then I'm all set!

Strangely enough, they take a whole lotta yarn!!!! But I'll have to make more since I have more needles to store. Also, I think I need to make it a tad taller.
A friend of mine said I should add the pattern links to my posts. So if you'll notice above, I've linked to my Ravelry page. So if there is a pattern that I've purchased, bought, borrowed, or drawn upon, it will take you there. If I've come up with it myself or heavily modified it, I usually will put this in the notes or if not, just ask, I'll share with you what I've done.
