Uh, Oh.....

 I was very happy to see this box show up in the mail.

 It had the yarn for my new mitten project in it.

 As soon as I opened the box I realized I had made a mistake. Two White Swish DK, two Garnet Heather Swish DK, two....oops. ONE Capra in Turmeric for the lining? What was I thinking? I need enough yarn for the lining of TWO mittens. Boo me.

This was the best I could do for color matching of the kit using Knit Picks DK. It's not too bad. The Capra is nice and soft. Another ball is winging its way to me as I write this-that and a couple of balls of clearance Felici. There is always a silver lining when it comes to yarn.


  1. LOL! I love your thought process. I think those colors are a perfect match to the kit too.

  2. Those will be nice and warm.

  3. Nice choices AND a silver lining. Not bad!

  4. Ha! A mistake, you say.....
    These are going to be great mittens!

  5. Score on that Felici add on!! Smart move

  6. Well, you do have to build up the sale so that you can get the FREE shipping.

    THose colors look beautiful together.

  7. Nice! I really like your color choices and I ordered a few days too soon on the Felici and paid full price. Boo! Yeah for you though! :-)
