One More Day & A Giveaway

Many of you know what I’m referring to. Any knitters involved in the Ravellenic Games knows (which is more than 12,000 people)! One more day to furiously click those needles till the end of the closing ceremonies! I am curious though and will have to look it up; is it when the closing ceremonies end no matter your time zone, or when
they air? Hmph. I’ll have to check the “rule book”. I’m not quite sure if I will get my Toy Toss entry, Flying Buddy Roo, done in time. But I have finished another item! That’s right….Finally Daybreak is off the needles! At this moment it is actually blocking…..for the second time. The first time I blocked it I did points where the slipped stitches created lines. I then decided I liked how more other people had it blocked, as a semi-circle, like the designer Stephen West himself did. And I knew I’d just feel the need to make another one and block it the other way, so I decided I would just reblock. And I think I’ll be happier. If you remember my last week’s WIP Wednesday Post I was quite worried about the pop of green in the yarn. Well, I got past the stripes and hadn’t reached it yet, so I decided to do the bottom in Color A instead of Color B and avoid the green all together. I’m very happy with the final result!

Now onto why most of you are probably here…a giveaway! My first actually! Because this is my 200th POST! I cannot believe I’ve had this blog long enough to get to 200! And I’ve kept writing because I’ve had so many such great readers! In a sense, blogging here helps me feel social, so thanks to all of you readers for that! So to celebrate and say thanks I’m giving away 2 skeins of Lang Yarns Alpaca Superlight. It’s a 2 ply lace yarn in a very berry shade of purple, and is one of my purchases left from Germany.

To enter, leave a comment and tell me what your favorite post or project from me has been! I’d love to hear it! I’ll be using a random number generator to pick the winner, and posting again next Friday. So you have a week! Good luck and go check out other FO Friday posts on Tami’s Amis and Other Creations!

  1. I found your blog through WIP Wed and FO Friday and those posts are my favorite. I had a few months not long ago that I wasn’t up for much knitting (I’m not doing a lot right now either, by my previous standards anyway) and seeing what everyone else is working on helps me feel like I’m still a part of the community, even though I mostly lurk and don’t comment often.

  2. Congratulations on 200 posts! That is fantastic. I love the colors on that finally daybreak. It’s gorgeous. I’d love to see it reblocked as well.

    Good luck wrapping up for the games! You’ve kicked some major butt.

    My favorite post was the one where you had us vote on the yarn and project. I thought that was SO fun. Did you ever finish that one?

  3. Congrats on your 200th post. So very exciting, I’m sure! Since I am from Germany (now living in Canada), I enjoyed reading your posts about Germany. My favourite was “To The Castle”, partially because of all the pics that remind me of home so much. Whenever I go back, I always bring back Lang Yarns yarn as well 🙂 If I won, this would be a nice little treat!

  4. Congrats on your 200th post! I actually just found your blog today through the Ravelry Blog Hub Contests and Giveaways thread (a chance for free yarn? I’m there!), so , ummm, this is my favorite post? I glanced through some of your older posts and it looks like we have similar tastes colorwise. I’ve added your blog to my RSS reader and look forward to future posts.

  5. I love your lavendel socks..did you give them to your aunt yet..but I’ve also loved some of your homespun also! It has been fun seeing everyone’s projects for the ravellenic games. I didn’t sign up for anything but was a cheering fan. Congrats on your finish..and 200th post.
