Winter's Here

I mailed my submission package to IK today! Now it's time for crossed fingers and waiting.

Sheryl/Yarnit and I had coffee at Lakeside Fibers this morning. It was very slow in there, which was nice. It's a great place to enjoy the view of Monona Bay and watch winter move into town. I managed to get out without buying anything. That must be a first for me. I worked on the Donegal Lambswool top-down raglan and some new mittens. I'm not sure the mittens are exactly working, but they aren't quite failing, either. I modified a chart from Anatolian Knitting Designs, to make it small enough to fit on a mitten. Also, reversed the figure/ground color values. Pictures in the next day or two after I get at least one whole mitten done.

And now I'm having a case of complete Mental Drain. I had at least two other paragraphs of stuff to write, but my head is suddenly completely empty. That must mean I'm done!

Let us know how the IK thing turns out. It's a lovely pattern, so they should snatch it up. If they're smart, that is . . .

How'd you leave that lovely store without buying anything? I sure couldn't when we were there, and I wasn't going to buy anything. Honest! They just had the needles I'd been looking for and were so nice . . . That's a very nice shop. I wish I had that nearby.

Can't wait to check out the new coffee lounge at Lakeside... I didnt think it was possible for my fave yarn store to get any better!
