My computer and I are having a disagreement about how well and quickly it should (and doesn't) work, hence the late post. :P Oh well, it's still Wednesday somewhere.
I don't have much in the way of progressing knits to show you since the two pair of mitts I'm working on each have one finished mitt (and they don't look very unfinished), and the cardi I started Sunday looks longer, but not much different. Oh, and the socks I started in Idaho haven't got a stitch more on them.....I spent all day seaming Exeter, though, so it's not like I've been sitting on my hands! I just have to set in the sleeves.
Yesterday was my birthday! I'm 27 and I feel a little bit tired. I did get lots of yarny goodness, though, so that makes up for the tiredness, I suppose. This isn't actually birthday yarn, per se, but yarn I ordered a couple months ago that just happened to come the day before my birthday, so I'll share. Isn't it yummy?
The dark purple will be leg warmers and the light purple (which looks very grey in some lighting) will be Buckwheat. I waited an incredibly long time for these skeins, so I hope it's great yarn. I've never used it before. They have incredible yardage! When I get all my actual birthday yarny goodness, I'll share that too.
The disadvantage to having a birthday in January is that my annual resolution to destash is always thwarted by knitting gifts like certificates for shiny new yarn....What are you working on? Do you find that you buy a ton of yarn in January too now that your Christmas knitting for everyone else is all done (in theory)? It's kind of a terrible and wonderful cycle, isn't it?
