TARDIS blue wrist-warmers.

These feel like the sort of wrist-warmers I would wear if I were traveling through time and space with the Doctor. :)

This is only the second project I've knitted from my handspun, which is something that needs to change really soon. I love knitting with just adds something even more personal and special to a knitted item. I feel like this yarn wasn't very consistent because I hadn't spun in several months, but I feel like the inconsistencies are hidden well in the finished mitts unless you look really closely. The color is also a lot darker than it looks here. It's almost the exact same shade of blue as this shawl.

I used this pattern, but made them a little less slouchy. I started out following the pattern exactly, but they were turning out huge. So I went down a needle size and cast on 56 stitches instead of 64, and now they fit perfectly.

As usual, more details on my project page here.
