Making fingerless mitts for Dale with my own handspun yarn: priceless
Really, who else would be worthy of receiving my very first project knit with my very own handspun yarn? Only Dale. He has been so supportive of this new part of my life that I knew, as soon as I saw I had yarn I would actually be willing to knit with, that it had to be something for my man. Just so you know, I wasn’t being lazy by knitting him mitts instead of mittens, Sandy. He insisted that he wanted mitts because it’s easier to drive the bus and handle the paperwork with his fingers exposed. When it comes to Dale, I always do what he says. You guys believe that, right?
Knitting with my own handspun yarn was pretty cool, I have to tell you. I kept thinking, I made this. I made this. I made this. I can’t wait to spin more so I can knit more with my own yarn. As Cate would say, Woo and also Hoo.
