What I did with my first hand dyed yarn

April 28, 2009

I wondered for a while what to do with such a small amount of yarn.  Finally came up with a phone mitten.

This led me to considering other ways to make a phone mitten.  I created the following one using the k1b stitch.  The k1b, when used correctly, can lead to vertical stripes.  The k1b also creates a thicker fabric that is even more protective.  The pattern is available, for a small fee,  through my Ravelry design page here.
