Mittens knit from the wool of our Finnsheep
Mittens are a great way to try out color blended batts. I dyed some of our Finnsheep's wool in shades of green and blue/purple. Then I carded the bats so that one side was the blue/purple color and the other side, green. I folded them in half and then pulled off strips of the batt so that both colors were in each strip. Then I spun and plied and started knitting! Mittens are addictive. The tiny ones didn't take much time at all. They are for my youngest grandson.
