The rainbows made me do it

I didn't mean to I swear. I just thought I'd wind up the rainbow skein. Just so it was ready when the Reading Mitts were off the needles. And I printed out the pattern... you know.. just so everything was ready.

Then I got out the needles... just to make sure I had them ready. Then I thought... what's the harm in casting on and knitting a row or two? I'm saving Lestrange for the weekends when I have large chunks of time on my hands.

Then I had to knit until I got to the rainbow... then I had to knit through the rainbow to see all the colours.

Then I had to pack it in my work bag to show my coworker....

And what's the harm in starting the cables over lunch, right....?

And then finishing them up before making dinner.... then working the thumb gusset after dinner... then... then...
I'll finish up the Reading Mitts on Friday... I swear.

Apparently you are under the influence of too cute yarn!!!!

You can't be blamed. It's the fault of the yarn.

If I had read the purchase post first, I would have bet money you wouldn't resist. Damn! I could have made some money! Love the cloud effect of the blue sky!

Wow! I love the yarn, I love how your project is turning out. I like how you just meant to wind the yarn and not only did you cast on lady, you went to town! It looks great. You're such a great knitter, I know those and the reading mitts will get done before you know it. Thanks for sharing another new yarn with us too!
