Spinning the brown

Last night I finished spinning the brown swedish fine lambs wool for mittens to match my hat.  It's so very soft I'm afraid the finished mittens won't last for lots and lots of wear.  I've tried to put lots of twist into them to make them more durable, and doing so I managed to over-ply them. 

I'm hoping they'll be ok once they get knit.

I'm also working on a vest.  I had some Marks & Kattens Sarek that has been begging for the needles. 

Friday night I was sitting in the couch longing for a soft cuddly vest and listening to the yarn calling for me...  The design is my own, so I will get it out on the blog as soon as I can.
