Teenie Tawn's Postal Mittens

My baby sister is currently working as a postal carrier and she needed a pair of sturdy fingerless mitts to help her get through the day with warm hands. I designed a quick pair out of Lamb's Pride yarn which is great for felting in the color Orchid Thistle which is aptly named for the thistle ranch I am running. The felting happened yesterday and they came out perfect, a bit of a boxing glove feel to them, but I think that will help in a rough and tumble working environment. The headband is made of the remaining yarn, but I will leave that up to my sis as to whether or not she would like it felted.
