It's Giveaway Day

Today's April 1st and that means it's April Fools Day AND it also means that a winning name has been drawn to win the 2 skeins of yarn and knitting needles that are shown above. Are you all ready? Ok, here goes: It's Meg. I will be sending you a message via Ravelry, Meg. Congratulations to you!

Every Friday I'm trying to remember to show you a snapshot of one of our Lilac bushes so that you can see it's life cycle throughout the year. We've had such up and down weather that it's not sure if it's spring or not! Would you believe more rain this weekend and then another chance mid week? Last I heard we were just over 21 inches so far for this season. That alone is quite a record!

I've been cranking away on Doris and I should have all the yarn (so far) made into socks. More yarn is coming, but I wanted to get these all finished and then I'll just have a few toes to close up, wash and block 'em and hopefully have them in the mail by Wednesday or Thursday.

Here's a few drying away on the rack.

Tomorrow we'll announce our April Giveaway, so be sure to tune in, ok? And congratulations again to Meg!

I would really love to see Doris in action! If you ever come to the south, email me, and I am there! Have a great weekend.
PS: The pie was great!

Thanks so much! I really had to ask myself a couple of times if this was an April Fool's day prank because I really am not the kind of girl that wins things.

I adore your Doris, someday I'll have one of my own. Beautiful socks, by the way!

Thanks again <3

What a cool looking machine Doris is, but it looks like its making a tube...I don't understand how it makes a heel or does increases and decreases. Anyways, it does look interesting. I knit a ton of sock but all on needles...I would be lost trying it any other way for sure.
P.S. I love the pic of the drying socks!!
