Arts & Crafts Motif Mitts

I have been meaning to post pictures of these fingerless mitts for over a month, and I figure I better do so before I get too involved in December/holiday crafting and baking. I wanted to donate something handmade for my son's preschool auction fundraiser. I have wanted for some time now to make some felted fingerless mitts, so I made up this pattern. The body is just a basic pattern. The cabled cuffs were added on after the rest of the mitts had been felted.
I am so very fond of the Arts & Crafts movement, so when doing the needle felting embellishment, I wanted my motif to be stylistically in keeping with motifs from that era:
I'm kind of wishing I had a pair of these...hmm.

This is not the only felting project I've been doing as of late. I made a wee giftie for my dad's birthday, and I'm in the middle of a project for my son's December/Christmas Tree/advent thingie. Both involve sea creatures. I will share more in my next post.
