FatCatKnits fiber sent in by whoever wanted to participate, and ripped to pieces by Daniela in France. We got back the amount we sent in, in my case 4oz, in little pieces, like that.
It's different colorways, different fiber bases, and the big question is always, what to do with it!
Since it's called Christmas Rippit I thought, I'd add some red fiber as one ply, which I dyed myself. It's on Falkland. It's not quite red all through, but pinkish in places.
Here's my finished yarn. It's bleeding red a little. My fingers were quite red while spinning, but now that I'm knitting with it, they don't get stained anymore. So I guess I got most of the red out after several rinses.
I added the red color, because I knew I wanted to knit these tiny mittens. Well they are not THAT tiny. One measures 4.5inches high, and 3.25inches wide.
I've made ten so far, and am about halfway through the yarn cake. Ten weight 106 grams, and I have 140grams yarn left over.
It's really fun knitting these.
I just started at one end of the yarn cake, and knit one mitten after the other. I will continue to do so until I used it all up.
I'm using 3.75mm needles.
Oh, and the pattern for these mittens is called Smitten and is free.
