Oh Wow!

Here are some pics of my Oh Wow! mittens from the Fall 2004 issue of Inknitter's magazine. They're knit with white Romney handspun (wheelspun) and merino dyed by Lisa Souza in a colorway she calls Wild Things. The cuffs were spindle spun and the rest of the roving was split lengthwise into the size of a super bulky yarn and then knit without spinning. They are very warm!

This pic of the in progress matching hat shows how the inside looks. Lisa does a fabulous job with her colorways. So much so, that I'm tempted to use the inside as the public side of the hat since it looks so pretty.

Now you know why I spindled that skein of yarn yesterday. It's just what I need to finish the crown of the hat. And just in the nick of time, too. Baby, it's cold outside!
