After about 30 minutes of not being able to get onto the site I gave up. I figured all the kits had been gobbled up, and I called it a wash. Well, being a school counselor I get to leave work around 3:30pm some days, and on that Tuesday I got home at about 4:30pm. I logged onto the Hello Yarn site to see the aftermath, and I was completed shocked to find a kit IN STOCK! I quickly added it my cart. The site crashed again right after. Overall, Adrian said she had over 114,ooo hits on her site that day. WOW! Talk about luck!
So I came home yesterday to find a wonderful package. Adrian did a great job with every aspect of this kit!! I am a huge fan of anything green, and these greens are absolutely gorgeous. They are rich and vibrant...and the color variations add so much depth. The outer mitten yarn is 70% mohair and 30% wool. The lining yarn is 100% alpaca. So so soft!! Adrian dyed all the yarn herself, and her attention to detail is evident. She does great work.
Ok enough talk...time for some yummy pictures:
I think this kit is one of my favorite yarn purchases thus far. My hubby thinks that I am absolutely nuts to order a mitten kit. I mean we do live in Florida! But I look at it like this. These mittens will be a special treat on those rare days when we actually have cold weather. We all have something extravagant or special in our wardrobe right?!?
