I call that willpower

I went to my LYS today and I'm pretty happy with myself. There were sooooo many nice things and I really wanted to buy. But I only got the new Interweave Knits and yarn for my Secret Pal. And because it will be the last gift and I'll reveal myself in the package, I can post a picture of it!

The picture doesn't do the yarn justice. It's 100% cashmere and it's a dream to knit with. What can I say, I'm a good pal and I always keep the great gift for last :)

No yarn for me, but like I said, I did buy the new IK. Am I the only one who thinks the girl on the cover looks a little bit like Jennifer Garner? There are a lot of cute patterns in it (I esp. love the celtic bag) but nothing that I want to cast on for right now.

What I do want to cast on for right now, is the Cardigan for Arwen. The funny thing is that it wasn't even in my Ravelry queue (which now contains 74 items) until this afternoon. But I saw Kate Gilbert at the LYS and she was wearing hers (the original) and it was BEAUTIFUL. And now I want one. Like now. Maybe I will end up buying yarn for my 30th birthday after all. (I think it would look perfect in Andean Silk, in Bluebell. Or maybe Hollyberry.

My Endpaper Mitts are done and being blocked. You'll see them tomorrow.

I ordered yarn for that as well and I am reading the LOTR books for added inspiration.

That'll be lovely with your cardigan for Merry ;)

I, too, am knitting Cardigan for Arwen, but it's hibernating right now in favour of Christmas knitting.

I've sent you your next gift in the mail. I ordered it off etsy and asked the seller to mail it directly to you, so hopefully he will. I hope you enjoy it.

Your secret Pal.
