There is something about picking a new yarn. Especially one that is very colorful and variegated. I purchased this new Patons Kroy Socks Stripes in Sporty Stripes. I get excited with new yarn because you never know how the end product will turn out. I decided to use the yarn for a fingerless mittens pattern I have. I am very happy with how the first mitten has turned out so far. I still need to weave in the ends and sew on a button but I think it looks pretty cool.
