FO: Hanspun handwarmers

Warming Crafts said it best: "Listen to what the yarn wants!"

And the yarn wanted to be mitts
Nothing much to detail here - no real pattern - just whipped them up from memory on 4.5 mm needles. The yarn is nice and thick so they are nice and cozy. They took me an evening and a morning to finish.

It's pretty cool to look back at the whole project. It started with some fiber I dyed
And Mom spun into a nice worsted weight yarn
And ended as mittens, perfect for our sub-zero winter

Always listen to the yarn. It knows best. Love the colors in that mix.
