Working on getting this up-to-date... This isn't strictly this year's work, but I wanted a record of it somewhere. I made four felted oven mitts for Christmas this year. Well, I only needed two, but two were over-felted and hence the four. I used Kate Gilbert's Gifted Mitten pattern with Paton's Classic wool and 2 strands of yarn on size 15 needles. Loved the way the thumb is crocheted closed, and did this method to seam the side, then chained 22 sts to make the loop.
