Let's Do It Again...........

Let's have another little giveaway just because we're all so cold and need some winter cheering up! Sound good? Just leave a comment on this post and tell everyone what your favorite knitting project is at the moment. Be sure to leave contact info such as Ravelry to make it easy for me. On Friday, January 18th, I'll randomly draw one lucky name to win this skein of "Bungee" sock yarn from Plymouth Yarn Co. It's a 95% superwash merino wool/5% elite spandex blend. Yep, it s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s! It's a 100g skein with approximately 403 yards and gives a suggested 7 sts to the inch on size U.S. 3 needles. AND it's made in Italy. Good luck and I'll see you all on Friday. Oh, and by the way, my daughter and I are working on a new idea to market to knitters. We're probably less than a month out with this product and hope to share it with you as soon as possible! WE'RE SO EXCITED ABOUT IT AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET IT UP AND RUNNING!

What a fun color! At the moment I am enjoying working on a bulky sweater/coat with a hood. Instant gratification!

This is a very cheerful color. It would brighten up any rainy and cold day. I just finished a knitted lap robe today in bright colors. I am also knitting a lacy beaded shawl in bright spring yellow green with golden yellow beads.

I am working on a shawl and it is so complicated I think it will take me most of the year, but it will be worth it I hope.

The project I'm currently obsessed with is working my way though the book "Brioche Knitting" by Nancy Marchant. I'm making a brioche scarf. I'd love to be included in the yarn draw - kylan on Ravalry

I've recently become an indie dyer of sock yarn, at the request of my lys owner. I am relaxing tonight after finishing and delivering an order today. I love your socks. They are beautiful.

Gale Fields said...

My fav project at the moment is a pullover for myself. Full of cables but very easy. And using a silk/alpaca/merino blend that is lovely to work with.
