Pat's Knitting and Quilting
May 1, 2012
When I received this combination of fiber as my Mixed Blessings from Fat Cat Knits, I had no clue what to do with it....I just couldn't see the 2 fibers as companions and was frightened by the yellow/pink "peeps" colored braid, but I decided to trust Ginny and just go for it ...
and I'm glad I did!
Perfect for knitting these mittens
Pattern: "Rose Wreath Mittens" from The Mitten Book
I was on vacation at the Cape and finished the outer mittens before I expected too - I had planned on making alpaca liners, but had not brought the yarn along with me, so all I had for extra yarn was the remainder of my handspun (mostly pink/yellow Nancy) - I'm so glad I didn't have the alpaca because I LOVE my resourceful scrappy handspun polworth liners!
and I like that the thickness of the liner poofs out the hand so the cuff is inset.
they are soooo warm and fit me perfectly - I think this will be my go to pair next winter!
