More great stuff from my Secret Pal, Special Mittens!
My March gift contains a (handmade?) needle case. You can't really tell in my crappy picture, but she sewed it with *glitter* rainbow thread. Ooh, glitter, how I love thee... Open it up, and there's size 6 Lantern Moon needles! I've been drooling after these needles for some time now. How did she know that I'm knitting Rapunzel on size 6 needles?!

Speaking of Rapunzel, I'm chugging along on. As you know, there was some drama originally: Sarah assured me that Rowan patterns are huge and that I had to make the XS, but then Montreal Marie from the Rapunzel KAL assured me that the reverse was true and that I should make size M. I hate drama. So I compromised and made the size I originally wanted to make: S. Because of all these hesitations, I've only completed the right front and half of the left front. On the plus side, I've memorized the pattern.

Soon, I will have a big reveal. I'm almost done with a cardigan made with Koigu and Manos... Just weaving in ends. (I started this one pre-blog, about 2 years ago, and all it needed was a zipper and weaving in of the many many ends. It's a gift, and the giftee periodically reminds me that she's been waiting oh so patiently).
