FO: Dip Dyed Mittens

yarn: martha stewart roving wool

 needle: sz.9

started: november 4, 2013

 finished: november 10, 2013

i saw a picture of mittens on instagram and loved them so much! so i made my own :) the roving wool is SO soft, and great to knit with.  the pattern is super easy and they knit up in a couple days.

i was a little nervous about the dip dyeing because i haven't really done it before...i got the mittens wet and dipped them in pink jacquard acid dye, then i added a bit more pink and dipped just the tips of the mittens.

i think it turned out pretty well! here is the picture i was inspired by:
