Clue #2 is finished!

I love a sense of accomplishment.

I finished clue #2 on the Mystery Stole 2 project on Sunday night. It is a really fun knit. I don't have to pay too close of attention. (Mostly just have to make sure I count correctly.) This picture is of about the same quality as my last one, but oh well. I'm not sure how to get a better one with only two hands. I don't have a clue how I will photograph the next section, as I am out of bulletin board.

This is what I did at the beach on Friday.

I have started my Vintage KAL lacey gloves. I am using Artyarns Ultramerino, and size 2 needles. The yarn is great. The pattern is easy to follow, but - of course there is a but - I'm having trouble with the size. I'm on gauge, but they are HUGE. I mean HUGE. I could put both hands in one glove. I do have small hands, so I was figuring that I could give them for gifts if they were too big. I don't know of any basketball players that need fushia lacey gloves, though. Maybe I will frog and try again on 2mm needles. I'm afraid they will be too stiff then, but size 1's will still be too large I think. err.

On a very excited note, my awesome SP7 sent me two boxes of fun - with a promise of a #3 on the way!!!! Take a look at the pictures. Prepare to be jealous.

TWO bags of coffee. One is my own special SP7 blend. Just for me! They smell soooo good. My car, my office and my house smell like awesome organic coffee. Even my DH, who really doesn't like coffee, was in awe of the scent.

And YARNY GOODNESS! This my friends is my new child, Schaeffer Anne. She is pink and purple and green and blue. She is wooly and mohairy and will make beautiful socks when she grows up. Her new best friend is the stitch markers my SP made just for me! If you hadn't of told me they were your first, I would never had known! So pretty!

Big thank you's to my SP! You kick @$$!
