Gloves for the new boy

Boyfriend gloves

Well, since I'm posting another small project I'm sure you've gathered that I have still not received my cashmere for Lucky yet. It's been almost a month now! I went down to Purl to buy the yarn for these gloves last Wednesday and the update was that my yarn was drying in the sea air of Maine two weeks ago and when it's dry it will be shipped. Sigh, I want just want my yarn! I don't blame them for taking so long, this is a one woman business, but I don't blame me for being impatient either.

So anywho, back to the gloves. These are for my new boyfriend. He works outdoors and was complaining he couldn't wear gloves because it interfered with reading his blueprints. Problem solved. Now only the tips of his fingers will get frostbite! I just hope Spring will be here soon and he won't have to get too much use out of them this season.

Finally received my new Rowan magazine. There are so many things I want to knit - including a sweater for the BF (curse? What curse?) He really wants a cable sweater from Yorkshire fable in Chunky Yorkshire Tweed too. He's such a little preppie boy and the first thing he went for in the yarn store was the tweed yarn (though he went for the 4ply first - not chunky). If I don't get that cashmere soon, I guess I have a cable sweater on order.

Oooh, tempting the curse! Just kidding, I'm sure everything will turn out great. I just got the new Rowan yesterday, finally - pretty stuff, but I guess they think we have nothing to do but thread beads all day! Catch you later...
