Last night I got the first convertible mitten finished out of my handspun blue face leicester in my Harvest colorway. I still need to sew on a button that the little loop hooks over for when I want the mitten top back so I can use my fingers. The palm part is a bit bigger than I would have thought but they fit just fine. I'll get started on the second one right away. I was thinking I need to spin more of this colorway for a hat & scarf but now have decided rather than both I'd make a wider scarf that I could pull up over my head - that way there's no hat head! Will probably weave it rather than knit it. Guess that will have to be the next roving to be spun so I have the scarf to wear this winter. Oh, forgot - the book this pattern came from is Not Just More Socks by Sandi Rosner. It's a pattern book for using self-striping commercial sock yarns for items other than socks, some very cute projects.
