Felted mittens

I finished them a long tiem ago and now I am knitting another pair. They are knitted in 1 thread of Plötulopi (unspun yarn). It is really perfect for felting. The work will shrink 20% after putting it in the washing machine for 40 degrees celcius together with a pair of jeans and some detergents. I embroidered some cirles onto the mittens before I put them in the machine. Here we have the result:

The result was goog I think, talking about the felting. However, I missed a pattern or something on the mitten themselves. So that is why I am knitting another pair with just zic-zac pattern over almost the whole mittens. It remains to see the result after felting.

Here is a picture before and after felting:
