Never enough

yarn, that is. Yup, finished a mitten with the leftover Mission Falls 1824 from the Boy's hat, went to start the second and there's no way I have enough of the main color to finish a pair. Oh well, a trip to the yarn store is in order.

I need some mohair to make this:

(Cozy Cardi from After Dark)
To go with Baby Girl's "tintess" dress. This child is the total opposite of what I was like as a child. I was the biggest tomboy you'd ever want to meet. Fought with the boys, scraped my knees, climbed trees, you name it. This child is a delicate sweet baby princess who freaks if her hands are the slightest bit dirty. We took this dress out of the closet to "try on" to make sure it fit for the Christmas pictures, party, whatever. Well that was on Monday. She wore that thing 'til bedtime, then first thing on Tuesday insisted on putting it on. Same thing Wednesday. Thursday morning we went to drop it off at the cleaners, since it had all manner of food on it, plus it was wet and gross. I handed it to the man at the counter and she lunged for it, getting into some weird tug-of-war with the guy, all the while screaming, "no, tintess dress on now!" This Is Not My Child. Seriously.
