Invisible Snowballs

Last week I worked on the mittens for Dan. The completed mitten looks like it will fit him nicely. I'll post a picture soon. The second mitten is missing the top inch or so because I ran out of yarn. I'd like to think that two balls of most yarns will make two mittens. I guess that extra inch around the palm was an inch too many. I searched and searched online for one more ball in the right colorway. No luck. My sister is very lovingly going to brave the unknown (the LYS) and purchase another ball for me. What would I do without her?

In other news, I just had the most amazing week with Jen and family. Joseph knows my name, or the sound that T makes, which is close enough. It's incredible how many times your heart can explode with joy in one day. I don't know how parents cope. It was also great to spend so much time with Jen. I miss her immensely and love watching her be a mom.

too cute. my friend yesterday showed me her new mittens, baby blue. right now, i have my origins gloves on to protect my hands after slathering them in the burts bees stuff you gave me. thank god for it! i've made about 140 sheets of paper and almost 80 more bricks. i think i'm going to need tubs of hand salve before i'm done.

Actually, your name has been perfected (if only a little). There is a clear "m" sound as well.

There it goes exploding again. Does that mean he's still asking for me?

I think a 'patch' of different yarn would make Dan's mittens EXTRA special! :-)
