I'm a Winner!

I correctly guessed the number of skeins hiding in a drawer, and my name was drawn at random. Thank you! They've published an interview with me on their blog.

A prize is on it's way to me--I'm so darn excited!

Next post will include finished photos of Calvert--hurrah!

Nearing the End of Christmas Knitting

Only one gift left to knit, thank goodness. Off the needles and blocked already is Da Man's sweater:

Nothing exciting, just your basic top-down knit in Cascade Eco Wool. Not a very pleasant yarn to knit, but it did soften quite a bit after soaking.

Also finished are my May Woolly Woolgirl Sock Club Kit--Froggin Socks:

That's some crazy yarn!

My next sock project is a pair of self striping socks from Sknitches:

The Colorway is Juicy, and the pattern is Nancy Bush's Oak Ribbed Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks. This is my first pair of self striping socks, and I think these will be one of my most favorite pairs.

Before I start the last Christmas gift, I'm knitting a sweater of my own. Calvert by Nora Gaughan.

Not much to see here, I know. I've got another 8 inches of stockinette to knit in this back panel before it gets interesting.

Hopefully that will be done by my next post.
