Mitts, Right AND Left

I finished the left mitt of my handspun, rainbow batt yarn. The one on the right looks more red but that's just shadow from the jade plant (alive and well in my house since June, thank you very much!) I'm really happy with the way the colors blend and even the way the colors match from mitt to mitt. The thumbs are tucked underneath, but they are there. I will definitely be spinning and knitting more Columbia wool - this stuff is so soft and pretty.

I'm off to pick out something new to put on the needles. See you next year!

Those are so pretty! You're inspiring me to get back to my spinning, and even to try Navajo plying again. ..Which, really, I shouldn't do either one, what with all the sweaters I have to finish... But really, if I spin roving into yarn, it takes less space, so that's stash reduction, isn't it??
:) Happy New Year!

So, when are you going to write a book? Yes, you are just that talented!
