Everyday at work, when I am wearing my fingerless mitts, many many people ask me "Are you cold?"
Yes, I am cold. So cold, I decided to make these extra long mitts. I love them....well THIS one. I only have the one done. But it was so quick I will have the other done before Monday, YAY mitts!!

It's tough trying to get an accurate portrayal of this yarn! Anyways, it's about 12-14 WPI, 250 yards, 2-ply, 4.25 ounces, lovely color. I wasn't sure about the singles (see previous posts), but I really like the way this turned out! I think I will take the other four ounces and spin a thick and thin for my Etsy shop.

Sorry about the lack of knitting/spinning content. I started my "career" as I have just graduated college and started my new job. I just haven't had the energy to post. Rest assured that there is at least spinning going on. I am working on finishing up the singles from my last post.
