Lookie, lookie, what I've got here!!
Aren't the gorgeous? Here, take a closer look.
This beautiful yarn was dyed specifically for the Walk-A-Thon by Scout. I e-mailed her with a jumbled up idea about yarn that reflected hope, healing and healthy living. Some how she came up with the perfect colorway!! Not only that, but she donated the prize skein!!!!
Ya want one of these beauties?? I know you do! So if you haven't done so already, hop on over and make a donation. One lucky person will win one of these skeins!! And please, be sure to support Scout's store.
In other knitting news, my "knit a sock a week" seems to be going really well. My first Koigu sock is done, and I'm working on the second Mystery Sock this week. As for the Almost Argyles . . . well, I sent those to the Frog Pond. I wasn't loving the pattern or the yarn - both of which are wonderful, but I just wasn't in the mood for them right now. They will be back . . . . when the time is right. But I've got so many lovely sock yarns and patterns calling me, it doesn't make sense to spend time on something I'm not thrilled with at the moment.
I did cast on another Ballband Dishcloth!! (Christine, that bug you sent me has taken a strong hold!!) What is it about these things that is so darn addictive??
Another new addiction I've found? Beaded stitch markers!! They are fun and easy, and the supplies are pretty inexpensive. I spent a lot of time over the weekend scouring Jo-Ann's and A.C. Moore's for pretty little beads. Oh well, having as many hobbies as possible is surely a good thing, right? Have any new hobbies caught your eye lately?
