Birthday Presents (Round 2)

We spent the day with Monica's family yesterday (had some great food, great conversation, and some fun knitting). And she had more birthday presents for me. Now I have to confess, I knew about the mittens (Monica told me, she was worried that I might be allergic to the Hair of Mo), but the other goodies were a complete surprise. A ball of Meilenweit Inca (of course I started the sock right away and yes I'm to the heel flap, it's a long wait for the turkey to cook) and 2 hanks of Cadenza yarn in autumnal colors (this yarn is so soft and the colors are beautiful). And aren't my mittens beautiful too? And the mohair doesn't bother me at all. Thank you Monica!

In other news, I'm so close to my 100th post I can almost touch it. So stay tuned, you never know when it will happen.
Have a great weekend (I hope you all have today off work too. Mandy is going to take me to see Happy Feet later) and stay clear of the malls (I know I will be). More later

p.s. for Kari (who asked about the yarn for the mittens), Monica held a sock yarn and mohair together to make my mittens. I'm not sure of the names of either of them. If she told me, I forgot. sorry. But they are wonderfully warm and soft and squishy (and of course its been in the 50's and 60's the last couple of days, but I'm sure I'll be able to use them soon).

Wish you could have stayed longer. I can't wait to see what the Cadenza becomes. Well I am off to have a piece of pie for breakfast.

You sure got some great gifts! Those socks you started are going to look great - love the colours, and the colours of the other yarn too! And your sister did a fabulous job on the mittens!

Kari said...

What yarn did you make your mittens out of? They look so soft and cozy with the mohair and the colorway is just beautiful. Thanks in advance for sharing!

The mohair I used in the mittens is King Cole Luxury Mohair.
