Pat's Knitting and Quilting
January 8, 2009
I have had Selbuvotter since the day it was released and these are the 1st mittens I've made from this book - more will certainly follow! I was immediately drawn to this particular pattern - the ravens were too wonderful to pass up.
I have a need to use up every last inch of my handspun, so decided to use the leftovers from these socks coupled with some Elann Peruvian Highland Wool. I doubled the handspun for a perfect worsted weight compliment to the grey yarn.
Pattern: Annemor #5 from Selbuvotter by Terri Shea
I love the basic design of all the Selbuvotter mittens, especially the thumb gusset - I like the way it looks AND the way it fits! Here they are with the ravens right side up...
This is Crown Mountain Farms Falkland Wool ( January fiber of the month). I was aiming for 3 ply worsted wt and got pretty close - this is probably between worsted/aran. I split the roving into 3 horizontal sections, spun each onto a separate bobbin and plied the 3 together for some soft, round, squishy, luscious deep pink yarn...final tally is 212 yards from 104 grams. What to knit?? I'm thinking something with fat cables.
