“There’s a yarn turd in the kitchen.”

by exercisebeforeknitting


That was Aaron’s nonchalant comment about the ball of Skye Tweed that I mistakenly dropped on my way into the living room to seam some of the Sunrise Circle. I’m not sure why this monotoned observation gave me fits of giggles but I hope some of you think it’s funny too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Contest winners are as follows:

Prize #1 (Cotton-Ease + pattern): to blogless Jennifer who wrote the following:

“…I am pregnant with twins (a boy and a girl) and am knitting up blankets for them in that terracotta cotton ease and the lime green based on YOUR wear test. ;) I would love to have the three skeins and jacket pattern to knit a jacket they could both wear that would match! As I am facing the prospect of bedrest, will have plenty of time to knitโ€ฆ”

What a sweet comment! Upon careful reflection, I decided it wouldn’t be fair to send yarn for only one sweater so I’m going to send her some lime Cotton-Ease for a second one. She’ll certainly have time to knit, although I think the seed stitch will get old fast!

Prize #2 (Lorna’s Laces sock yarn): to the always fabulous Liz K. over at Crossroad Knits.

Prize #3 (Rellana Flotte sock yarn): to Chris, cohabitant with the infamous duo, Chaos and Mayhem. Go wish her a speedy recovery!!

Ladies, please email me (elinor AT knitlawrence DOT org) your addresses and I’ll send your loot this week!

Thanks for playing, everyone! I’m glad some of you de-lurked to say ‘hello’! My inbox was flooded with comments so it will be a few more days before I can back to many of you. I appreciate all of your positive comments and warm welcome to my new home on teh internets. Olga‘s comment, in particular, made me laugh out loud:

“Love what youโ€™ve done to your new place! Those wood floors are fab-tas-ic! So much light – makes the place look larger! Love the landscaping too. Anyhoo- just came by to drop off cookies for the house warming…”

Now, if I could figure out a way to get blog readers to send me cookies… Hmm… must work on that…
