It could be the cold, but I don't think so.
Yeah. I don't know, so I thought I'd just make it "easy" on myself by using both yarns from the start. Mitts are usually a traveling sort of project. I can work on them anywhere. Perhaps not this time. I'll have to find something else to carry around.
I'm trying not to let myself work on much else until I get this thing finished. However, I have been doing lots of Pi Shawl work before bed (on the nights where there's time for that). I'm halfway through the last pattern repeat! I find it ironic that after struggling so long with this project, it is now the easiest thing I'm working on.
Oh, well. Nothing like uncertainty to keep you on your toes, right?
And now, after all that whining, some yummy, happy fiber! This is locally dyed BFL in the colorway Dawn In Paris by Auntie Karen & Co. I picked up 8 oz at the LYS and can't wait to get to it. The dyer does not seem to have her own website or anything, just a local who sells through the LYS. That's fine with me. I also picked up 4 oz of this nice bit of BFL in Black Forest Cake. Same artist, same store. Black Friday sales can be good. I wasn't expecting to be out shopping, but Himself had me helping with a project of his and we ended up right around the corner from the LYS, so there was no real reason not to go. I have no idea what I'll do with either of them, though I'm thinking a scarf for the Dawn in Paris. Maybe a hat for the Black Forest I want these colors very, very visible! Too yummy!
