Having spun quite a bit of my orange fiber I thought I would try knitting something from my handspun. The gauge of this fiber is like a thick aran so I thought Fetching mittens would fit the bill.
They look like handspun in that the texture of the yarn is rather uneven, but I think it works pretty well with this pattern. Of course it's been over 100 degrees here every day so the idea of wearing mittens seems rather distant!
These are the first actual item I have knitted from my handspun!
