So, like I said before, I’m doing another round of the Ongoing Wish Swap over on Craftster. I claimed PhoenixFireDesigns for some knit wristwarmers. They are awesome and look like this:
Pattern: My own, using a Norwegian Star pattern that’s all over the internet.
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette in Fog and Red Heart Heart and Sole in Spring Stripes.
Needles: US 3/3.75 mm
They’re really pretty and I love how they came out. I did the star motif using intarsia in the round which was a pain in the ass, but worth it. I was afraid I was going to run out of the Heart and Sole because I only had a little bit left, but I actually ended up only using a couple of yards and probably have enough to make another pair or two of similar mitts (or something else with a pretty self-striping contrast row).
And now for the fail: So, as it works in OWS, someone claimed me for something off my list, then pm’d me for my address so they could send it to me. I very carefully replied with my address. OR SO I THOUGHT. See, I have two addresses, sort of. I have my school address/mailbox number that I use for mail when I’m at school in Fredericksburg and I have my home address, which I use when I’m at home in Virginia Beach. Now, I’m at school in F’Burg til May. I managed to type in the correct address for school EXCEPT FOR THE ZIP CODE, which, if you know anything about the USPS, you’ll know is the MOST IMPORTANT PART.
So, yeah. Now my package is sitting is Post Office limbo. I’m hoping it’ll get to me eventually. Cause I’m sort of really excited about what I was claimed for. So everyone, cross your fingers and hope for the best. I’d appreciate it. : )
