Back sometime ago I joined a swap to spin up some yarn and knit an item out of it and mail that off to my partner.. turns out my partner and I are in the same group knitting circle.. it made stalking her easy. We had very different tastes in colors but it was nice to push me out of my comfort zone of clown barf into the world of deep, rich, jewel tones.. and she had this beautiful pattern in her queue.
After coming up empty handed, I asked Dyeabolical Yarns to post stalk and spy on my swap partner and dye up something based upon her favorite colors… and this is how I spun the beautiful roving we made! I think she liked her package.. the mitts are really stretchy and would be fantastic to wear over a pair of gloves as well! I have very small hands and they fit me nicely (see photo) and would stretch to fit man hands as well since the pattern is mostly rib.
