knitted :: handspun Child’s Mukluks

So after I made myself a pair of handspun Mukluks last month, my kiddos decided they each needed a pair as well.

I dug out this handspun from my 2010 Tour de Fleece:

Hello Yarn Polwarth in “Cauldron”
I spun up a pound-and-a-half of it back in July 2010, for a pullover, and I ended up using less than a pound of it for that. From the leftovers I made two cowls that fall (one of which I now see I never documented), and still I had oodles of yarn.

So I made Little Buddha these Mukluks.

Cute, huh?

Lime green is his current favorite color, so this yarn seemed a perfect choice for him. The bottoms are a mix of purples and orange, but the tops are mostly green. Fun!

I really love this pattern. Mukluks are totally addictive. This pair is the Child’s Large (gah! his feet are almost as big as mine! soon he’ll need an Adult Small!)

He loves them, which makes me super-happy. Now I’m spinning up some yarn for a pair for Tiny Dancer, and then a pair for a friend, and then I might be done with Mukluks for a little while. Maybe.
