I had a nice long online conversation with my dearies, Heather and Eilene, and we discussed resolutions… and I realized that I am really bad at keeping them… for instance… I wanted to do some stash-busting, so I produced another pair of 90-minute mittens with this Trendsetter Genie in my stash.

…this one in particular…
…and with this yarn…
I gave in… and I fell victim to the heaven that is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran…
…and guess who was there to help me through this decision process?
Eating yum cake!

A lovely afternoon was had by all… and I came home with a lot of yarn and a lot less money in my wallet… but I think it just might be worth it. I actually bought an extra ball of yarn because I am thinking of extending the sleeves a little bit.Â We shall see how that turns out.Â I probably will not be knitting this until spring, mainly cause it is short-sleeved and cannot be worn right away!
Wanna have some FUN?Â I found these:
Click on the images and make your own! Have fun
Secret Pal 4 is starting soon… and I signed up. I really had a lot of fun last time, and I hope this time is another success!
Planning a nice knitting day tomorrow… I want to work on Kris’s sweater, which is working up pretty well.Â I am a few inches away from completing the front… and then onto the sleeves. *sigh*
