You may recall I spun some merino/yak yarn during Spinzilla with the intention of making super warm mittens since my hands get really cold during the winter. I made them, and then it was unseasonably warm for months. The first day of winter felt more like the first day of spring. But when I woke up this morning my phone told me the temperature was 11°F. Ah, now that is merino/yak mitten wearing weather! So I wore them on my morning walk in the woods, taking them off so I could take their photo.
(I live in Michigan. What do you want?)
I also started my BFL Death and Taxes sweater, and it’s really awesome so far. My plan is to eventually write a pattern for it in DK Merino in multiple sizes, so I don’t want to tell you too much about it yet. Stay tuned!
Have you made anything with your Spinzilla yarn yet?
Don’t forget, January 15 is the last day we’re taking online retail orders.
