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!
