I got something very very special in the mail the other day! Maryanne knew I was feeling down and she went way above the call of duty to send me a little package.
It's a gift certificate to be used for the purchase of the Fiddlehead Mittens kit at Hello Yarn. Maryanne and I have been talking about these mittens for awhile now. We've decided that once Hello Yarn catches up with the demand for these mittens, we may do our own Fiddlehead KAL. I showed the kit to Adam the other day and he thought they were very nice - That's high praise for knitting! Hello Yarn also sent along a sample of Soak Wash and a little skein of Fat Sock Yarn. The skein is 170 yds so it's really not all that little! I think I'm going to whip up a pair of baby/kid socks to donate to Warm Woolies. It seems appropriate to share the love. Thank you Maryanne, this was just so amazingly sweet of you!
Here is the finished product! I put them on Lily and she immediately started screaming, "NO Momma!" She hates them. I couldn't even take a picture of them on before she was trying to rip them off.
