Warm Fuzzies

I have Fuzzy Feet! I finished them this morning and felted them right away. Donna, the
Sweet Sensations felts like a dream. I think they were in the washer for about 10 minutes or so before they felted down to size. I tried them on and they fit perfectly. The cuff is not as felted, which I expected because the carry-along gets in the way, but that's ok because it makes it easier for them to fold over. I couldn't be happier with them. And, since I knew I'd be felting my Fuzzy Feet this morning, last night I dug out my Fizz Mitts and ran them through the washer. Here's the before pic. They took two runs through the washer to felt, and even then the left mitt was still bigger than the right. I ran it back through with the Fuzzy Feet this morning.

Here's the final size. I also felted up a scarf to match. Everything is still a little damp. They're all sitting in the warm spot in my room, drying. I can't wait to wear my new mittens on Monday! They'll be traveling to Paris, too. Wonder what Dave will think? Anyone else remember that James Bond movie with the fur mitten? Which one was it?

I believe it was Goldfinger. The girl had it and then they found her painted gold. However, looking at YOUR fuzzy mittens, I'm thinking Elmo. But I'm also thinking of those very first felted mittens I saw at Yarns Unlimited years ago with the hot pink main yarn and the blue eyelash. Thinking I might have to do something there....

oooohh! I love the felted items. I finished my fuzzy feet, and love love love them. I am glad the sweet sensations felts so well. I found a pattern in a mag for a purse I want to make. Now I am real excited about starting it. Also, I have been wanting to make fuzzy mittens, but have not yet got a pattern. After seeing yours, I will have to get one.

HA! I was wrong thank you for the 24 hrs of Bond on TV. It was Patricia Fearing in THUNDERBALL with the fur mitt.

Telling you we need to do a Hallowig in a furry yarn.
