Happy, happy Sunday. It felt like an amazingly long week, therefore this weekend feels much needed. We have Father' day to celebrate, World Cup watching, and the start of a KAL. Are you doing all three this Sunday?
I have one covered, I have began my project for MySister'sKnitterSockYarn KAL/CAL. Stripe study has been one of those patterns that I have been thinking about casting on forever. As luck would have it a wonderful friend gifted me the pattern, giving me that little extra push to cast on.
If you missed me mentioning it in an early post, we have a group on Ravelry which hosts a number of KAL/CALs. Most recent is the sock yarn KAL, it starts today and runs through August 15th. Already there is happy chatter going on, yarns being shown off, and pattern selections being posted. I couldn't ask for a better group of knitters and crocheters to knit along with.
Progress on the not blue, Peacock colored Dew Drops shawl continues. I really can't wait to get this baby off the needles. Not because knitting on it is not a luxury, but because I can't wait to see the lace all blocked out. You know that feeling.
And as if my life was already full of wonderful knitting, I received the most beautiful yarn in the mail for a sample/test knit. This will be my first time knitting with yarn that has Yak in it.
Okay, I am quite sure that most of your would like to know who won this beautiful skein of yarn from Little Dyeworks.
The winner was # 61~ Karen
I love the stripes and it seems that thicker stripes are in and I haven't any in my old sock stash, thanks for the giveaway! Have a lovely rest of a Sunday :)
Thank you for all who entered and purchased yarn from Ashley's wonderful shop, Little Dyeworks. Never fear as you may remember this is the year for Indie Dyer yarn giveaways. There will be plenty more chances to win lovelies in the coming months.
Have the best day today all of you!
