Back-to-school fiber

I try to make stuff each year for my kids to wear. Alaric already got his pair of socks for this year. I just finished these gloves to go with the hat Aurora already got. She shouldn’t expect any Christmas knitting from me.

The gloves were her request. She picked the fiber off etsy.  It looked like this:

I’m a little surprised at how different the two ends of the yarn ended up being.  When I look at this picture of the fiber, though, maybe I shouldn’t be surprised.

In any case, the gloves ended up being more fraternal than identical.  That’s cool by Aurora, and I kinda like it, too.

The hat also has some handspun in it–the brown stripes.

Now I just need to finish Elenna’s socks and cast on Cambria’s mittens.
