I am calling off the search party...

Do you ever just get something stuck in your head and you have to find it? I have Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac, I know I do. I have made the baby february sweater - this may be the only bit of proof to myself that really, I had it. I saw these gorgeous mittens this morning - you need to peek over - rav_link. They are EZ's mitered mittens, which I have admired a thousand times without really feeling like I NEED to knit those, now. Well, not until today. The mittens are knit by CatReading from some handspun spun by the talented Amanda, aka Wannabe. I am so inspired to pull out a sacred skein of my own handspun and knit a pair (finally, something to use this handspun for, I mean I just pet it, hello?)- maybe a pair for me first - to make sure they are "okay" to gift. You totally see through my excuses, don't you?

So, anyways, getting back to my original point (I swear to God, ADD)- my book is gone somewhere in my house, but gone nonetheless. I give up *hands raised high*. I have looked everywhere - but because I know have several other projects going I will try very hard to turn off my nuerosis and wait for another copy - patiently. However, isn't is a clever coincidence that my husband is going to the bookstore today? I'm saying a teeny, frivolous prayer that Barnes and Noble, or anywhere, will have it in stock.

Sour Fig Hello Yarn Club...perhaps destined to be mitered mittens? (after I ply it, or course:)

ETA: Everyone can go home, I have the pattern! Thank you (you know who you are)!

Oh, I'm glad you got it! I've certainly had that happen before, and it's no fun. Can't wait to see the mittens.

This exact same thing happened to me with the exact same book! I had to go to the library to check out a copy. Later I found the book inside another book, because it's so small it slipped in there.
