Purple Mitten

Purple Mitten

This is a lone purple mitten. I bought the yarn (Briggs & Little Regal) for felting but it turns out that it doesn't felt very well. Requires many, many, many cycles of the washer. So I needed something else to do with it! It's scritchy as heck, but I thought a pair of mitts might be nice. Knit it up from some free internet pattern (that I will find and link to here someday) with a double strand of wool but it turned out too big and floppy. Felting it smaller wouldn't be easy, but I thought I might try it. My understanding though is that the ribbing will flare and that would suck. So should I do it or not? I wallow in indecision and thus my mitten remains single. Poor thing.
