So, despite my longing glances at the mail truck each afternoon, it would seem that my yarn for the Tea Leaves sweater I'm planning to knit has still not arrived. I'm quite positive that today is going to be the day, and that I will be able to greet my mailman with enthusiasm when he trudges up the snow covered stairs to our door. At least I hope that this is the case because stalking your mailman is probably against at least one federal law.
Since I finished Mariam's mittens over the weekend (no photo taking opportunities are available this morning because she wore them to school today), I've had to rely on my backup project the last few days. The Backup is actually a perfectly good project, it is just that the lovely, lovely yarn that it makes use of results in progress that is preternaturally slow. So, as much as I am pleased with the sweater so far, I need to take breaks from it so as not to feel that I am trapped in a knitter's Myth of Sisyphus. Not to be dramatic or anything.
A couple of other little notes:
- Amanda is doing a limited second print run of the first issue of Kindred. And I say that that you should probably jump to it considering how quickly the first run sold out.
- The January Glue sale continues. Enter "twenty" at checkout for 20% off all issues.
- Stephinie is having a sale too! Check out the Gypsy Forest winter sale here.
Yarning along with Ginny today.
