I've put it in my head to spin some yarn for mittens for my dad for Christmas. As it turned out, nothing was good enough, OR had enough yardage, as with this yarn. In the end I spun four different yarns until the last one finally made it onto my needles.
So here's the second try. It's Corgi Hill Farms 4oz Merino/Yak in the colorway "Otter Den".
I love how this fiber blend feels, but for reasons unknown to me, I never get great yardage out of 4oz of Yak blend. This time it's only 189yds/worsted weight, chain plied.
I devided it in half lengthwise, and spun for each mitten separately.
I love how it came out. Too bad it was not enough for full man mittens.
It can always become a hat now, because I already made fingerless mittens from such a fiber blend.
BTW- last night started out crazy as well, but once Happy realized that there's no Boogy Man stalking him, he finally relaxed and slept. But I also think his paw hurt a little, they might be cracked. He's so sensitive in having people touch his feet, even me looking at them makes him fretful.
Here he's sitting on my foot stool, well aware that it's Denny's favorite spot, enjoying his "victory" for a few seconds, or until Denny realizes it. Note his ears, tuned in on Denny's location. Poor boy, it sucks to be at the bottom of the pack.
