Despite the awesome start to Valentine's Day, the rest of the day did not go so well. I got home to find a very cranky Joe screaming at a very inept cookie bouquet delivery establishment on the phone. Apparently, I was supposed to get a cookie bouquet by 4PM, and they just couldn't handle that request. He also had a little bug or something, so he had no appetite for the surf & turf I made for us. He felt REALLY bad, and requested a do-over on Saturday. I reluctantly (HA!) obliged. ;) He was dying to go on a road trip because he just got his car back after a month of being without it (car accident; he's fine). I suggested WEBS, and HE suggested WEBS and Yankee Candle village. Woo-hoo!! I ordered some Blue Sky Cotton for a sweater for him, and got some of WEBS' Deerfield yarn. It's something like 80/20 alpaca/silk, and it is sooooo soft (and on sale, btw). Yankee candle was awesome (winter clearance; yeah, buddy!), dinner was awesome, and renting the Heartbreak Kid was a little disturbing, a little pornographic, but still funny. I'd say Joe's do-over was a big success!
I bought the Deerfield yarn to make some fingerless gloves, and before I knew it, I had fingerless gloves!!
They're Maine Morning Mitts from Clara Parkes' Book of Yarn, but the pattern is also available here for free.
I worked on Hermione yesterday, but I have to rip all of my progress on the sleeve. It's just way too big. No big deal. It's just one day's worth of knitting. I can handle it. :)
In other news, I won another contest!!! Am I the luckiest blog contest winner or what?! I asked Maryanne of Knittymuggins a question for her Un-blogiverssary, and her hubby drew my name out of the Ikea pot of awesomeness! I won this pattern and yarn to make them with! Yay!
Wow, that was a really big post for me! Thanks for listening to me ramble if you made it this far!
