FO Friday: Legacy Mittens!

I finally have an FO to share this week - these simple striped mittens using both skeins of yarn from my first shipment of Mountain Meadow Wool's Legacy Yarn Club:

I used a free pattern from Kelbourne Woolens, the Lychee Mittens, and two skeins of  Mountain Meadow Wool Tweed Worsted (you can read more about the yarn here). This was also the perfect opportunity to use my new mitten blockers!

I really enjoyed working with this yarn - it just felt good in my hands. If I had to elaborate more, the best I can do is describe it as crisp, the perfect blend of softness while still feeling substantial and durable. Though it's it's a 3-ply, it wasn't the slightest bit splitty as I knit.

Hooray for finished mittens!

The resulting mittens feel so warm and cozy; I could totally see myself making a sweater out of it down the road (you know, when I finish the two sweaters currently on my needles and work through the various sweater quantities of yarn still lurking in my stash).

Now, if I can just manage not to lose one of the mittens the first time I wear them outside of the house, I'll be in business!
