Fallberry Mitts


This pattern was so much fun to knit that I've already cast on another pair for a Christmas present.  Sometimes I wish you all could feel the squishy factor in a project through the photos on this blog.  These mitts are super squishy and while I referred to the pattern frequently, it was 'an easier than I thought it would be' pattern.

Sadly I cannot tell you much about the wool that I used.  I bought it at a fiber festival and the spinner didn't give any personal details to her skeins except that it was sport weight and romney wool.  I was delighted to knit and find little bits of hay in the spinning, a rustic wool but oh so soft and springy.




I cannot wait to wear them.  Yes!  They are for me instead of a gift for someone else.  I also have some wool left over to maybe make a hat.

  6. They look delightful!

    It must be lovely, to be able to wear wool. I can not stand the "feel" of it. -sigh-

    When I was a girl, my mom had a lovely dress made for me. Why she had it made, I don't know. She was an excellent sewer herself. Anyway, it was a golden color and so pretty. But when I put it on, I could not stand-the-feel.

    Nope, did not break out in a rash or such. Just the _feel_!!! She was upset because it had cost plenty. But what could I do???????????? And then, is when I found out, I could not wear wool. :-)
