NEW PATTERN: Handspun Dreams Mitten

What to do with a precious skein of bulky handspun yarn?  I played with mixing handspun with a commercial bulky yarn to create a simple fabric that stretches the supply of precious yarn further, enough to knit a complete wearable accessory.  For this design I alternated between the two yarns every other row.  If you have a more limited supply of handspun you could space the handspun rows out further.  It creates an interesting fabric, and the combination options are endless!

These knit up SO incredibly fast.  If you have a skein of bulky handspun you picked up a long the way and have never had an idea of what to do with it, this is a good option for you!
