Last night I sat down at the spinning wheel and worked on my fiber from Northern Lights Fiber Co. It is just beautiful with its shades of orange, purple, red and rust. I can't wait for the final product to be done. I was so inspired by spinning my own yarn that I decided to wait no more and cast on a project with the yarn that I showcased in my last post. I opened a brand new book up called The Knitter's Book of Yarn and immediately found a fingerless mitt pattern that would work. It is a simple K2, P1 rib with a thumb. It called out to me to be done on smaller needles. I adjusted. It worked and walla, a fingerless mitt was born. Now I say a mitt was born because it's twin still has yet to make it's appearance. I hope to knit it up tonight.
