Felt Mittens

So… have you seen the new Interweave Felt? Did you see what’s on page 32?


I was excited when the editor emailed me about my submission. I’m even more excited that the pattern is now available!


It was definitely an interesting and rewarding, if sometimes stressful, experience. It was challenging because I wasn’t quite happy with how the red Scottish Tweed Aran fulled; I think it may have been the dye, as I noticed it was shinier than the gray yarn.


It was scary fulling my first test mitten, but happily, my math worked out and the result was close to what I wanted.


The funniest part (to me) was seeing how much yarn they sent me. Two large boxes! Full of yarn to play with!

I hope you like these mittens! The pattern is listed on Ravelry, Cuffed Tweed Mittens. Check your LYS or bookstore (Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc) for the magazine. :)

    Congrats! They look marvelous! I think I’ll pick up a copy just because of those mittens. I’ll say to my friends “look I know the designer!” ;-)

    OMG, I did see that pattern but I didn’t notice that it was yours! Congrats! Did you use all the yarn they sent you or do you have any leftover? Did you have to give it back or will you be able to use it for something else?
