FO: Dashing


Pattern: Dashing
For: me
Yarn: 160 yds of my handspun, 8 wpi, Navajo plied
Fiber: Illinois Green Pastures Montadale Top
Needles: US 6 Knit Picks Options
Timeline: started 11.22.2009; finished 12.18.2009

As you can see, handspun can definitely make things interesting. I knit these up exactly the same, but evidently I spun more thinly as I went along. I went and ripped out 6 rows on the longer one after these pictures were taken, so at least the hands are the same length. I left the rest because I didn't want to reknit it. I also used up pretty much all of the handspun, which I spun from local fiber. They're really warm, but I need to remember to put them on before putting my coat on, since they're pretty thick.

Comments:
They look so cozy!
