But seriously, how pretty is that ribbon? When I saw the color of the yarn in person (Zaftig, Fierce Snake) it made me think of ribbons and lace and corsets and Victorian things. Thus, this gauntlet/wristwarmer/whatever was born. It would be pretty simple to de-ribbon it, too, if you didn't want the extra prettiness. More pics when I write it up and publish it.
Also, from now on whenever I start to feel bad about this whole yarn obsession thing, I'm going to remember this:
That's my Fiasco, with his new video game, huddled under blankets hiding from the light of day so he can see the TV screen better. Despite the vast amounts of yarn I buy and how much I talk about knitting, I don't think I've ever looked quite this silly.
