Handspun Makes Me Happy

This blue and green yarn is going to be some mittens for the Little Buddy next fall.  He picked out this fiber and said he wanted a hat and a pair of mittens.  I navajo plied it and I got around 94 yards from half of the braid.  I will spin the other half and should be able to get a hat and pair of mittens from it.

I love love love UrbanGypz superwash merino roving.  It is a dream to spin. I got around 326 yards of a three ply out of the Mr. Blinky braid that I had. I am not sure what this is going to be yet.  I had originally thought socks but it is so very pretty it might be a cowl or a small shawlette.

Ooh, that's PRETTY! And Mr Ben's choice looks very little man appropriate.
