By now everyone has already knit this pattern or at least knows where to find it so..

I give you, Knitty’s Pomatomus, by Cookie A, knit in dyed-by-me, spun-by-me, merino-tencel. I am well pleased about how they came out, though I was worried about yardage towards the end. This is a full 4ozs of fiber, and as you can see from the photo below, it was a bit close. Oh, and I got some sock blockers a while back that I forgot to post about. I won’t be keeping them; I am a sock savior. As soon as they are dry, these babies will be winging their way to someone who was in sockapalooza4 whose pal did not knit them socks. I hope that she enjoys them and likes them as much as I do. I hope that the handspun makes them special enough, since I didn’t have time to design a pair of socks just for her.

I do plan to do this pattern with more handspun for me sometime later, but first I have a few Christmas hats to knit.

    Wow. I just had my first spinning course, and can now appreciate the skill involved in producing such lovely handspun yarn! I am not worthy!

    Those socks are awesome! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten my handspun fine enough to use in a pattern – I’m totally in awe of your mad spinning skillz. :)

    Looks like you got some nice tight yarn there. Speak of the yardage! Your recipient will be thrilled she got stiffed in the first round. The colors are perfectly distributed.

    Lots of bunny dancing going on right now in the house. I received them today and tried them on. They are AWE-SOME. I am bringing them tonight to the Panera Craft Group, and will be wearing them tomorrow so I can show them off during the monthly Wine and Cheese Knitting Circle.

    At first I wanted to figure out what yarn you used, then gave up and went to your blog. I am in awe that you spun and dyed the yarn because I am all thumbs.

    Bunny hugs!!
