Here's my first attempt at embroidered, felted mittens.

Even if you don't speak Swedish, it's fun to see what she has knit. She's really talented and prolific!!!
Anyway, back to my project. I used an old mitten pattern meant for felting, but I see that I will need to adjust it too. I like them roomy all together. I especially like roomy thumbs and I think they are warmer than when the knitting hugs the thumb. But it could be a few stitches narrower and a few rows shorter. I might put them through one more wash and see what that does. Every wool yarn felts differently, so sometimes it's necessary to knit things more than once to get them right. I'll use the same yarn and try again.
With that all said, these will be perfect for taking the dog out. She doesn't realize that the temps are cruel. Being a keeshond, she LOVES the cold. The colder, the better, silly thing. And, whether it's cold or not, she still has to do her biz. Have you ever seen so much fur?
