Kittens and Mittens - finished!

Success! Splendid, wonderful, success! The mittens felted up BEAUTIFULLY in the washer. I'm amazed at the difference in size before and after. I resisted the temptation to do them one at a time, but I do have a picture with my hand as a gauge. Anyway, pix of the finished mittens when I get them. I'll almost certainly make a hat to go with it - but whether or not I follow the accompanying pattern remains to be seen. I'm so thrilled!

I may well have caught the felting bug as I'm already dreaming of interesting fair isle pattens to do with these yarns that could then be felted into beautiful beanies and toques and other wonderful stuff. Geez. Another way to spend my time ...
