Although it is lovely, the rustic texture proved to be unsuitable for the honeycomb cowl that I had in mind, so I was on the look-out for suitable patterns. As always, I was initially hampered by my desire to use all three colourways in a project. “What? Only use 2? But I have 3!”
In the end, it came down to ‘what did I want to knit?’. I fancied doing some stranded knitting, and that helped me to focus. When I saw this fingerless mitten pattern by Crafty Cathy, a lightbulb went on and I knew the hand-spun yarn would be perfect.
The (free) pattern is written so that the mitten is worked flat and then sewn up. I wanted to work it in the round, so I made a few changes (you can find them here on my Ravelry page) and in next-to-no-time these mittens took shape …
I’d like to think that the talented hand-spinning Guild members would approve!
And I still have enough for another project … when I decide what that should be 😉
