This is the first thing I knit from yarn I handspun! So cool! I spun the yarn from BFL roving in Burning Bush from Spunky Eclectic. Next to the mittens is what is left from the yarn. I had about 1" left for each mitten at the top - I had to weave these 1" and felt them immediately in order for the mitten not to fall apart.



 TFL!

These are great. I love the colors of the yarn, and you are lucky you hands aren't any longer! Nice work.

Aww they look great! I can't believe you were able to finish them and cut it so close! Yikes, i would have been sweating it!

These are really nice! I always see so many pretty multicolored handspun yarns, but wonder what they'll really look like all knitted up. Good job!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
