Temptation…

moo

Temptation.  I think temptation affects everyone, don’t you?  Maggie was a little tempted the other night (and she gave into it and ate that candy corn so fast!)

And today…well, today I was tempted.  I thought that I would walk over to Seaport Yarn today at lunch – you know, just check out the place.  No big deal – I’m on a yarn diet, after all.  I would simply browse and then tell all of you about it.  Unfortunately  I couldn’t go – at the last minute I had a lunchtime conference call.    So no temptation there – and it is probably a good thing since I have…ahem….a very weak will sometimes. 

But then I got home…..and there was something waiting for me – a box from Finland! (can you believe how fast this came?)….

How gorgeous is this?  I was drooling the minute I unwrapped it.  Look at the picture!  Look at the yarn!  How cute!

But once I pulled out the yarn….wow – its gorgeous.  Simply gorgeous.  And all the more amazing when you realize that Leena dyes her yarn with only natural things – like mushrooms and cochineal (I’m not reading the whole Wiki on this because I really don’t want to know what it is).  Honestly  – if you resisted this the first time I mentioned it, you really need to go and buy a kit.  It is amazing.  Go – come on, go look now.

And so tempting…..what?  What is that on top?  Could that be DPN’s?  Or is that temptation….

Have a great weekend!  Maybe I’ll have a little bit of mitten to show you next time!  And don’t forget – Sunday you get an extra hour of sleep – yea!

    I checked out Leena’s site from a link in one of your previous post. I was very impressed both with the yarn and the mittens designs. I can understand why you were drooling. Come to think about it… I haven’t recieved anything from Finland. I will have to remedy that… I wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings. But alas I am on a yarn diet too… but not forever.

    What a gorgeous mitten kit! I’d have a hard time resisting myself. Besides, mittens are such a quick project. 😉
