Yarn Mail and mittens.

3 02 2007

DSC01380About a week and a half ago I saw some sock yarn online and REALLY wanted it.. but I had this paper to write… a very BIG paper.  So I told myself, if I finish this paper by 9:30 that night, I could treat myself to the sock yarn.  I finished at 7:30.  This is definitely an amazing feat for me. (I love procrastinating.) It came today. 875 yds! 100% merino wool sock yarn!  I bought it off of Mysticalcreationyarn.etsy.com. They have some gorgeous stuff and are having a sale on some other items.

DSC01382I decided yesterday that I needed some mittens and they were going to be made this weekend. So yesterday I heard the new magknits was up so I went out, looked up the new patterns and there was a mitten pattern! It was perfect. Exactly what I wanted. I started it, and got really far last night before deciding that the pattern just isn’t as snug as I would want it so I’m ripping it, then I’ll go back and cast on less stitches, alter the pattern from there.

Go you for finishing the paper in time to buy that yummy yarn!!!! And your mitten is adorable, too – too bad you have to rip back. It will be worth it in the end, though!
