The first of many mittens, I hope
I got to thinking of all the international children who's parents are students at the university here, many of which are from warm climates. They come to our church for English classes, dinners and to worship with us. Mittens to keep small hands warm came to mind and what better than wool to do that?
This is the first pair that I have been working on. I am using Kate Gilbert's Gifted pattern as a guide but my yarn is worsted weight instead of bulky. I would like to felt these slightly to make them warmer. I am hoping that they will fit someone's small hands. I may try a different pattern for the next pair. I would like to try using 2 strands of the worsted.
