|The girls spent a while choosing what colour mitts they wanted.|
I ordered the suggested yarn from Magpielly and had to wait a while for it to arrive as it was a special order (I'm guessing it was shipped from America). But it was worth the wait as the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece is lovely both in feel and to work with.
|After blocking the mitts sat lovely and flat.|
|I had to have my brow mopped while attempting this tricky procedure as I was worried I'd drop a stitch.|
I had a practise first on this test one so i could get to grips with the idea (it's like open heart surgery) and slowly following the instructions it started to come together and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So then the fun bit came when I could sew on all the lovely sweet-like buttons.
And I am very pleased with the finished result. I'm chuffed I persevered with this, as for me anyway it was a challenge.
My girls are really pleased with their new gloves too and have worn them to school today.
