knitted :: handspun mitts (Albina Armwarmers)

I had the privilege of going to Rhinebeck last month and staying with some super knitter friends. The group has a tradition of doing a Rhineswap and this year we swapped handknit mitts. I got to knit for the lovely Sara.

I wanted to make something extra-special for her, and handspun mitts seemed the way to go. So I got my hands on some Pigeonroof Fiber Studios BFL in “Legerdemain” (link is to the stash I bought it from – I didn’t get a good pre-spinning shot myself) and I spun it into this:
spun :: Pigeonroof Studio BFL
roughly 300 yards of 2-ply light worsted

I was really happy with how this spun up!

I’d been wanting to try verabee’s Albina Armwarmers pattern for awhile, and it did not disappoint. If you are looking for a great custom fit, you can’t go wrong with these.

And they were a fast knit too!

I especially love the little buttons:

I think they look great on her! In fact, all the mitts looked great:

I love mine (the purple ones! love!).
