new fancy yarn and fingerless mitts

This is new yarn from last week. Feeling yarn is so fun. The multi color one is silk. I think I will make a shawl with it. The varigated blue one, maybe a horizontal scarf. The green???? Not sure there.My first knitted fingerless gloves. WOW. I was nervous. But it worked. First time to use double pointed needles. I had used alpaca yarn. 1 skein and you see how much is left. I am pretty proud of myself with the thumb.
My external modem fried last week. So I could not check my emails and my favorite blogs for a while. I was surprised how much I missed it.
I went to my local yarn shop and bought more yarn since than. Plus a very cool book ( knitting). All about the knit stitch. Very cool patterns. Just plain knitting NO purling . Sounds interesting.
When you are a crocheter or knitter it seems you have soooo many ideas. Not enough time. Oh I signed up for a local Knitter's Fantasy. All day playing with yarn. I signed up for some crochet and knitting classes. In the fee you also get a really nice lunch too. April 4th. I can't wait. I never did anything like this before.
