You may have realized that the reason these are striped mittens is that I don't have enough of the nordic blue yarn. Now, I have even less. So mitten number two will have a top and bottom of blue but many, many stripes of other colors in the middle. The lesson here? Don't become too attached to the blue.
Before leaving for our Christmas holiday trip, I had to repack one of my daughters' suitcases - she chose "poorly" as Gandalf said. As a result, I found a lot of things in her drawers to give away this week. Two pairs of jean, tan pants, a skirt, a blouse, a pair of shorts and her brother's little Crocs. When you are in charge, you get to choose what goes! We are going to plaster and paint her room this January so I am anticipating lots of other items to give away!
