Guess what the UPS guy brought me today????
No, really. Guess!!
Wait. I’ll give you a clue.
Hmm. You probably won’t need anymore, but I’m so excited I’m going to give them to you anyway.
But wait, there’s more! Observe:
That’s about 15 skeins (more or less) of Palette Yarn from KnitPicks. With the exception of the Sweet Potato, which is earmarked to become a Half Hexagon Spider Web Shawl (from Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby, page 45), this yarn has aspirations of someday being made into a pair (not just a lonely single) of Latvian Mittens. I can’t wait to get started, but I feel I should make a little more progress on my socks, as I’m at the point right now where I always lose interest and start something new.

I have to tell you, I’m particularly pleased with the heel on these socks. I actually remembered to slip the first stitch of every row, and the result was so lovely that I’ll never forget again. Here, so I will never forget the joy of these heels, is a close up:
But wait, that’s not all!
This is the Wool of the Andes. That’s ten, count ’em, TEN skeins. I don’t know what this wants to be yet, but I can’t wait to start it!
I must finish the socks.
