Report: Glittens

A Mittens and Glittens Workshop with Caroline Merrell

14th December 2011

This workshop was a great introduction to working with merino needlefelt to create a pair of mittens or glittens - a combination of fingerless glove and mitten. Caroline showed us first how to make a ruffle to decorate the mittens, then we sewed the two halves together and felted down the seams.
We spent a most companionable day learning, chatting and enjoying feltmaking; a welcome diversion from seasonal stress, plus the bonus of returning home with a handmade pair of Christmas mittens.
