Anyhoooo . . . I made another pair of mitts.
And this pair is the best. I call them Fuzzikins. Because they're so fuzzy. And so soft. Too bad it's going to be 70 degrees here for the next few days.
These guys are made from Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri. I picked up two balls of this stuff last week when Alicia and I visited Nina, and I'm so glad I did. It's like knitting with a cloud. I'm so in love with this yarn.
|Look how fuzzy!|
After I finished these on Sunday night, I spent some time just petting them. This color is called "Toasted Marshmallow." I also got a ball of "Agua."
|Look at the little alpaca face!|
And then I got really crazy and bought 3 more balls off another Raveler's destash! I'm going to make a little sweater . . .
Eventually it will get cold, right?
I did buy the print pattern for these mitts, because it was there and I was too lazy to figure it out. I'd say this pair only took a half ball, so although the yarn is on the expensive side (I paid $14.50), for 2 pairs, or a pair and a small cowl, I think it's reasonable. They would make a great gift. I did end up adding length to the palm and the thumb, because my hands are on the larger side. Even so, each mitt only took about an hour - another reason they'd make a great gift!
