And The Winners Are....(drumroll please...)

1. Elaine630
2. Becky
3. Brooke M who said "I like hearing a nice person talk about knitting and cats" and did not leave me a way to email her! :(
4. Kathy who said "I like knitting and sewing, so it's fun to see what you are working on. And I'm an animal lover, so I like seeing pics of the kitties. You are doing great! (And you keep us locals updated on events and happenings.) You have a great sense of humor, and a good heart!" - I don't know how to contact you, either, but I realize you must be from my neck of the woods!

Would Brooke M and Kathy please shoot me an email (my address is over in the sidebar there-----> and send me your address? Kathy, if you're in my area, perhaps we could meet up? Will you be at the next Roanoke Knitters and Spinners Meeting at the Salem library next Thursday?

Congrats to all the winners!!! I'm sending everyone sock yarn - I decided there wasn't any way to figure out who got the book and who got the magazine (a Piecework with an Orenburg shawl pattern in it, that I somehow got a duplicate of!) so I'll save them for another time...


And last night and today, in between running errands and washing fabrics I finished these:

And another shot that shows off the heels!

Yarn: Berroco Sox colorway 1476
And Mary? There wasn't a bit of yarn barf in the whole skein - THANK YOU!!! - If you all remember the 1477 colorway ended up in 5 pieces and Yarn Explosion (and Mary!) were kind enough to give me this ball to knit up...I had to get them done quickly to let them know that there wasn't a problem with this ball!
Needles: Knitpicks Options size 1.5, 2 circs
Pattern: You know the drill, right? Judy's Magic Cast On for toe-ups, plain vanilla stockinette, with picot edging and that wonderful sewn hem that doesn't require casting off and then sewing it down (the link to those instructions is over in my sidebar under the title: Things I want to find again)
Time to Knit: January 21 - 31, 2009

Tomorrow? I'll pick another bag from my Personal Sock Club 2009 and begin a new pair!

Awesome! I've never won anything from a blog! I'm a fairly new knitter, just been knitting about 2 years and I've been wanting to learn how to knit socks, so this is perfect! This is Kathy by the way. The best way to reach me is flintk@vt.edu. I live in C'burg and I'm on ravelry. I shop at Mosaic often. It was on Gina's website that I first read your blog. Please feel free to email me. And thank you so much!

Nice socks, Sallee! I'm glad that the 2nd ball of yarn worked out for you. I love the new Raven color for February's socks. {{{HUGS}}}

Love the socks, and glad you didn't have any of the yarn barf with the skein too.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
