Fiber: Wool Candy


So do you remember not long ago when I was waxing prolific over Wool Candy's gorgeous handpainted yarn? I finished one pair of mitts using the beautiful apple green variegated yarn (see above) and loved it (I probably have enough for another pair!)! No pooling and no striping of color - my number one pet peeve with variegated yarns! I love knitting variegated yarns that keep you wanting to see what the next row will look like - that was definitely the case here! You will definitely see more mitts knit with Wool Candy. In fact, I'm casting on a new pair in gorgeous black currant/purple/merlot. I highly recommend knitting with Wool Candy!

These are beautiful, Phyd - my fave shade of Green! I want to show you the color way I am working with on my own knitting project...maybe when we see each other at Renegade?

Wendy, I would loooove to see your colorway! Renegade or shoot me a pic! I love green - it's my favorite color ...

Ngan, I am a lover of mitts too! It's so great for working in bed late at night or early in the morning (I'm guilty ...), and just for keeping toasty around the house. I love them for walking and working outside too. I'm working on a less expensive line, too!

Thank you both for your comments! xo

Those are so cute! I absolutely LOVE the rolled edges -- they look so cozy. Thanks so much for saying such nice things about my yarn! I'm glad you like it! :)
