Filed under: Knitting,Spinning,Uncategorized — admin @ 9:24 PM

First the test mittens made of commercial acrylic and cotton:


Second pair – given away before photographed.

Third pair: First mitten complete.   Uses Natalie (light) and Opal (dark) Border Leicester/Romney Cross handspun.


Started second mitten:



Learned stranded/two-color knitting, which makes for a thick, warm mitten; need to learn to spin more consistently, especially between different animals (Opal spun up much thinner than Natalie even though the staple length and breed are the same); fuzzy handspun requires simpler and larger motifs, as details are lost.
