WIP Wednesday - Bella's Mittens
Now here is where it get's tricky. Instead of commercial yarn, I decided to use the lovely handspun yarn that I created using Farkland that Kelly from Felting Sunshine dyed. It was a dream to spin and I totally loved her colorway but somewhere in my spinning part of the yarn totally striped how it was supposed to and the rest did a more obvious barber pole/candy stripe look. Oh, all would be well if it were a hat or shawl because the stripes would gradually fade into each other but with mitts...well, I really don't look like I have a pair. PLUS I discovered on mitt number two that I did finish my top quite right. Oops! Must have been busy talking instead of reading the instructions. No issue there, I can tear out and reknit but...how do I make this pair match?
Fortunately I have (think I have) enough yarn to knit one more mitt. So I am casting on and whichever mitt it matches will become the other mitt in the pair and the third mitt will....hmmmm, either get torn out or become part of an oddball set. It's a fun knit and I am totally LOVING knitting cables. Woot! Now...to cast on again.
