Woolythyme - just spinnin round

Random witticisms of a confirmed fibre-holic

Off to Frankenmuth, pass the pretzels!

Well, I guess that didn't take long. It's off to Frankenmuth again. Yes, I will visit that wool mill again. Of course I'll stop in at the amazing and gorgeous yarn shop that I spent almost all of my spare time in last time. And, in case you're wondering, I've managed to fenagle my Mom to do the driving (she's got a nicer vehicle than mine, it's clean and there aren't any random knitting needles anywhere to poke unsuspecting passengers with) so that I can work on the mittens! I've got half a men's mitten done in red and black. Just a simple fair isle pattern the only thing is, I think this one wants to be a glove. I don't know why. How can el-cheapo acrylic yarn tell me what it wants to be? It was once a pop bottle for crying out loud! Oh well, once it's done, I'll post it's pic (hopefully will have a pair by tomorrow night) and you can let me know. I've got enough yarn, I probably can do a pair of mittens and gloves if I really wanted to. Just for fun, I also packed a ball of variegated in pastel blues & a ball of off-white someone gave to me last year. I did only bring 1 set of needles. Surely I can stick it out and finish a pair. I guess I should leave the pretty blue back a Mom's until I finish the red.... Its really just asking for it isn't it.

Wish us luck! Hopefully the border guard won't think my steel needles are WPM's and take them away. I really don't want to buy any more, I've only got 7 more pairs at home!!
