Just finished the second Breeze
... finally, after several weeks of not much knitting, an FO! I think I will make another pair soon!
I found another contest ... Adrienne is celebrating having her sock pattern published in the 2008 pattern a day calendar -- you could win a skein of Tofusies simply by telling her the one part of knitting you don't like -- but hurry, she will be drawing a winner on Monday! Remember -- you could have your pattern published too ... just submit it before December 2007 and you have a chance to be in the calendar for 2009!
And another contest is going on here at Knitting Sutra ... she is looking for a pattern that will defy pooling ... if you mention you found out about her contest from my blog, I get an additional entry (the prize is incredible yarn ... not telling what - you gotta go see for yourself!)
The ADD Knitter is also running a contest too! (it is a contest-a-paooza out there folks! people are generous!) For some reason I can't get blogger to just let me select her contest post -- so you will have to just scan through and find the Saturday, July 21st (today's date) post to enter.
I am going to the Fisheries Museum tomorrow to learn how to spin using a drop spindle ... very exciting (in anticipation of it, I have been browsing the 'net looking at roving, fibre and batt ... but have decided not to order any until I actually know what each of those things are! LOL!) I am really looking forward to learning how to do the spinning thing, but don't have a sweet clue yet how to do it, or anything else about it -- J. did give me a quick demo of what she learned last week, and asked me to try, but I was timid, and declined (I will dive in tomorrow!)
