Texas Yarn

Sometimes I fall over stuff. My sister lives in Houston. I was searching for a ball of yarn. Seems easy huh? NO! I looked for over a week. The yarn must be 50 g, and 180 yards approximately, and wool. Someone in the Townies Group pointed me to KNITIVITY Adventures in Fiber Artistry. Located where? TEXAS! Not only does he sell this size yarn but he has it in lots of colors. The only tough choice you will have is picking which color to knit with!

I want to knit MITTENS!! There is some mittens inside me that want to be knitted and they won't take NO! for an answer. Ok so what if it is 92 degrees? So What! It is so hot in my room i can't even stand to touch yarn. Good excuse to crank up the air conditioner and say oh well to big electricity bills. Well it is really only for 1 or 2 days a month. But I am gonna knit MITTENS!! I have a couple of mitten books. Tried and tried to find the latvian book with no luck. Now I am waiting on my Knitivity yarn in sport weight. Oh I see mittens in my future.

Did you ever knit mittens? when? pics? blog about them?
write in let me know!!

You can get the Latvian Mitten book(by Lizbeth Upitis) from Schoolhouse Press. And, perhaps KnitPicks.

Super I will go see if it is in stock. Does anyone know a site that carries it with free shipping? I know amazon does but is out of stock.
