Success! The fffelted mmmalabrigo mmmittens (take 2) are perfect!!! Can you sense my excitement from all these exclamation points!?! *does happy dance* This time around I opened up that danged washing machine lid like every 3 seconds. There would be no chance of another felting accident. Nuh-uh, no way jose.That’s a look at both attempt #1 and attempt #2 of the mittens. The top mitten, as you can clearly see, is substantially smaller than the bottom one. Yeah…whoops. Those will be living on the hands of a lucky little 4 year old. At least I know better for future projects. The bottom pair are Loverboy’s. They fit ‘like a gloooove’.
You know what I just can’t get over? The softness. Malabrigo is ‘like buttah’ to knit with, and it totally retains it’s heavenly state even after felting. I just can’t stop touching them. Loverboy may have to fight me for them. Maybe we should draw up joint custody papers.
Or maybe I should just get on down to the yarn shop and see if there’s any left in stock. Hmm… Must finish actual xmas knitting first. D’oh!
