I have finished the mittens and now I have the whole set complete. I wore the mittens for the first time tonight on my drive home and realized it has been a long, long time since I last put a pair on. It was very difficult to carry my bags, my keys, my purse, open the vehicle door, fandangle all my stuff in the van, drive home, open the door, get all my stuff back out of the van, close the door in a manner that did not catch the mittens in the door, manoever the keys to get into the building, and unlock the front door. Plus it felt weird on my fingers – I guess my fingers don’t like to touch each other, liking the fabric of gloves, better. Weird. They are toasty warm, though, and soft!
Having finished the mittens, I thought I would bring in the crochet afghan and get started on that again at work tonight. So I grab everything, open the bag of yarn, pull out the afghan – and the yarn is the wrong shade of blue!!!! Gah! And I don’t even have the original receipt to exchange it for the right colour. So now I have (what feels like) 50lbs of yarn and nothing to use it on.
I guess I will have to make myself a sweater or something. Heh. Any suggestions?
