I haven't seen a pair of these yet that I didn't like.  But isn't it all the more special that it's your own yarn too? So pretty!

Wow, very impressive. Especially because you used homespun. I'm working on he Anemoi mittens and loving the pattern.

Thanks for all of the really nice compliments! 

I was pleasantly surprised at how well my handspun efforts knit up (and a touch proud too...  Cheesy). 

The yarns are both merino.  The lighter/variegated yarn (background color) was dyed by me and turned out a whole lot lighter and more pastel-y than I had planned, but I like it in combination with the darker.  I seem to have an easier time spinning thin yarns (I need to work on consistently spinning thick).  The yarns are about a sport or sock weight, approximately 17-20 wpi (not completely consistent Smiley )

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