I'm having a little party here - a Finished Objects party. I haven't had one of these in quite some time.
First, who doesn't love handknit mittens?
Handspun Wensleydale in the Wild Things colorway from Lisa Souza. Yummy.
Next, a top-down raglan in koigu color P138. I've been working on this for a year and a half.
I ran out of yarn a few rows short of having full length sleeves, so I washed and dried it hanging, and the sleeves grew about 1" making them just perfect. Of course, now the v-neck is a little deeper than I usually wear, so I will have to find a camisole to wear under this, or be a little more daring. Ha Ha.
Here's an action shot. It's not the most flattering, but my 7yo photographer did the best he could.

What will she finish next?
