Wooden Paws

I'm very very slowly making progress on some mitts for the special person in my life. It's not because I'm a slow knitter. It's because I need to actually knit in order to make some progress. I think that I might be purposely sabotaging any efforts that I make to finish things. If I keep starting more, I can never be finished, right? Sigh.



These mitts (well, the beginning of one mitt) are being knit out of Julie Spins BFL in her "Wood" colorway. I've spun this into a 2-ply heavy dk to light worsted weight yarn. I'm making them up as I go along, so I'll be sure to post the pattern and any tips once I finish them. I'm really liking the fabric that this yarn is making so far. Maybe that's why I'm not working on them so much - I don't want to give them up. Nah, just laziness and over-commitment. :D

Here's how the mitts started:




Gorgeous colorway, amazingly yummy yarn to spin with. What more could a knitter want? Oh, more time. Sigh.
