Homespun Fingerless Mitts

Homespun Mitts


To soothe my soul from the socks disaster I decided to break out the unbelievable hank of local handspun yarn I managed to find a couple of months ago out and knit something up.

Homespun Mitts

Simple, effortless, fingerless mittens. I knit them both up in one evening in front of the television.

And not only are these beautiful, but the yarn is so soft, the softest sheep's wool I have ever felt. It was hand-spun locally, dyed by spinner as well. Unfortunately the days the local knitting and spinning groups meet up is on a busy day and there's too much competition on the car for me to make the meetings... maybe once mum returns to the states I'll manage to squeeze it into my schedule... anyways! Back to these gloves!

(big thanks to mum, hand model!! Photographing yourself in gloves is... difficult)

I really wish I could send these to you to try on, they are incredibly soft; no itch at all!

Yaaay! I was promised by the lady who made this skein that she'd show me how to spin on her wheel if I managed to eventually make it to the knitting and spinning meetings... hopefully sometime soon I'll be able to work it into my schedule, it's something I would -love- to get into myself.
