So it all started Friday night while running errands before dinner. Hubby was reliving his work day and he mentioned his boss ask a "newbie" knitter on his team if she could knit up some fingerless gloves/mittens for a gift to the new team leader coming from Arizona on Monday. She said if she had six months she could. I made the comment that I could do it this weekend. I knew what pattern I would use and what yarn as long as his boss paid for the yarn. A quick text message conversation and it was game on.
So we got up early on Saturday morning and headed to my local knit shop to pick up yarn. While picking out yarn, I got an early Christmas present as I saw my friend in a knitting class there, learning to knit so she can make me something. That is so awesome! So by 12 pm I was home and picked up my needles.
