Making Mittens ??
Well folks it's Thursday again and that means its time for My creative space hosted by Kirsty.
I have had quite a creative time thus far this week, if you are a regular reader you will know it has been cold here and earlier this week I made the Pyjama pants from a Sheet, and knocked the girl scout dress off my UFO list.
I also finished this long abandoned princess dress up skirt, and recalled why I had abandoned it. I did not enjoy sewing this at all and it may in fact be the shoddiest sewing I have ever done.
Then yesterday afternoon as I had this Apple Tea cake in the oven
I had a great idea to make this long ago outgrown baby jumper into some mittens. As it is quite chilly walking to School in the mornings.
So after much trying on and pinning and sewing and tweaking and sewing again and tweaking again, I ended up with one mitten that fits quite well.
Is just not quite right.
It's all to do with the thumb.
It needs a separate thumb. It just doesn't feel right, it sits a bit sideways.
So last night I googled and found a pattern for these absolutely stunningly gorgeous felt mittens at 'the purl bee'.
I could definitely work with that pattern.
And this one from 'D is for Delicate' could work quite nicely too.
Thank goodness I'm off duty for the school walk today. Stay tuned for mittens. : )
