FO: Katy's Christmas Mitts






Pattern: http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/200...ess-mitts.html
Yarn: Lionbrand Fisherman's Wool. 100% wool. Hand dyed by our very own Foxyie!
Needles: Size 6 bamboo


These were an amazingly quick knit. I think there are definitely more of these gloves in my future. I love the way the thumb gusset worked up. I think that if I was to make a set for myself, I'd end up making the ribbing on the top maybe 7 rows instead of ten, simply because I have small hands.

i never pay attention to usernames when i'm looking at the fo's and wip's and i was just looking at the picture thinking that is a very nice color and when i got to the end i saw that i had dyed it!

silly me, no wonder i liked it, heh. great job on the mitts!

how is it to work with that yarn? i have only dyed it so far. i have not gotten a chance to use it myself.

Its delicious to work with. There was no scratchy wool feeling. Wearing them around, they're really warm without being too scratchy or itchy.

Huge thumbs up to you dahling! I love the dye job, and can't wait to work with the other colors you dyed too! *hug*
