Bella Mittens for Jessica

My step-daughter is a big fan of "Twilight". Recently, I came across a pattern for some "Bella Mittens", based on the mittens from the movie. So, I asked my step-daughter if she wanted a pair. "OF COURSE I DO!!" she replied. (tee-hee)

So, I'm on it. I'm using some Lion Jiffy yarn I found on sale at Hobby Lobby. She's a "washable" kinda girl, so it should work perfectly. I've made it past a few cables, and it's looking good so far.

By the way, here's the pattern:

Yay! I won some yarn!

Woo Hoo! Remember the scarf I just posted in my blog? The one for the Special Olympics?

Well, little did I know...but I was automatically entered in a contest when I posted my scarf on Ravelry. And I WON!! Unbelievable. I won 12 skeins of yarn from Coats and Clark. (Red Heart, Moda Dea, and TLC yarns) What a wonderful thing!!

I decided to choose Moda Dea Metro in Chocolate...a very yummy yarn. I made my decision when I was looking at yarn at AC Moore. That yarn just really grabbed my attention. My husband noticed it too.

I plan on making a cardigan or pullover or light jacket with it. Just gorgeous yarn. :D
