I really love the wool, but... there is a big BUT.... the wool smells like a sheep... I know a shock right... wool that comes from a sheep smells like a sheep... So the yarn has just been sitting around at home and I don´t know if I was hoping that the smell would magically disappear. I have however been suffering some allergies since starting work again and I can´t really smell that much now, so I took the opportunity to use the wool now.
The mittens are warm, thick and will be so much better after some wear... Since the yarn I choose were natural colors the white sometimes was gray and the gray sometimes was white... so in some parts of the mittens It looks like I did errors... but I really was very careful and I frogged a lot of times only to find out that I hadn´t made any errors. I wanted them to be perfect since I´m planning to give these away... just hope the person won´t mind the smell... and that they really are not perfect.. you can really tell that they are handmed..
