Please email your snail mail address and I will get the basket off to you. We pulled a second and third name out of the basket too–just in case the first winner didn’t get back to me. My mom has kindly offered to donate a second basket to BobbieB. So, Bobbie please send me your address too. And the third name, well she attempted to fill the basket, so to speak. Who am I talking about? A certain pig/pug loving blogger, Ann. Will we disqualify her? Nah…I’ll find something for her!
A disclaimer, Gracie was not thrilled with any of the pictures we took but agreed to let me post this one. She’s a doll.
In the you asked for it, you got it world…here is my progress on St. Brigid.
I am rather disappointed with my increase error. It is a triple increase on the right and wrong side row in the middle pattern. I must have forgotten one increase on the right side. So, I tried to fudge it on the wrong side. It looks pretty crappy. Sigh. I am not so good with ripping the aran’s off the needle. I could tink back. But that is very time consuming. I am not sure I can drop it down. If I decide to fix it properly, I will give the drop down a try first.
In other exciting St. Brigid news, Kristi of Needlefingers finished her St. Brigid. Go ooh and ahh. She spun the yarn too. What an accomplishment.
This weekend was fun at the yarn shop. It was busier than I expected and filled with Irish women buying 4-ply. Joanne came to visit too. She will be Clapotis-ing soon. Unlike other knitters I know–myself included–she’s got plenty of yarn.
Today we visited Kevin’s family and left the kids for a few hours while we hit the outlets. I got two pairs of cashmere lined Coach gloves. Granted the colors are funky–Shrek green and turquoise. But they will match the lovely coat Kevin bought me at the After Christmas sales. And we went to Lowes. We are organizing closets–including my stash closet. Maybe I will even get a doorknob. Oh, the excitement. I was digging through the other day and am contemplating the Kid Classic I won in the Mason-Dixon Knitting Afghanalong for Rogue. Anyone know of a good reason why I couldn’t use it?
Happy Valentine’s Day!
