I’ve been finishing a lot of things lately, so that makes me want to cast on for several new projects. Sometimes I find I’m in the mood for something quick and satisfying, and knitting with handspun yarn often fits the bill for me in that respect.

So with that in mind, last weekend I cast on for a pair of mittens for myself, using this pattern from Susan B. Anderson. It took very little time and less than a full skein of handspun to finish the project, and I love the mittens:

I love that they’re fraternal twins – pretty similar but not an exact match. That’s the beauty of knitting with handspun – you get fun little inconsistencies like that which bring character to your finished projects.
