I’m pleased to announce the winner of Tuesday’s giveaway, by virtue of random number generator…
…is commenter number 45, or Kris! Congratulations, I’ll be in touch with you asap and you’ll receive a fabulous little zippered notions pouch from Pog Totes. Thank you to everyone who left a comment on the giveaway post.
In the mean time, new projects are on the go here at Knitting to Stay Sane, and I’m sure I’ll have a busy spring and summer ahead. Since I’ve been flirting with lace and Nancy Bush’s book lately, I finally decided to go for it and cast on for a Queen Silvia stole, with some of the lovely Turtlepurl luxury laceweight I picked up at the Knitter’s Frolic. The yarn is a blend of silk and alpaca and cashmere, so you can imagine that it is basically like knitting with kitten purrs. I’m giving it at least a full pattern repeat before I fully commit to this combination, though, since it’s also a yarn at the very fine end of the laceweight spectrum and I’m not entirely sure if I wouldn’t prefer a slightly heavier laceweight option. There are nupps ahead, after all. Lots and lots of ’em.
Have a great Thursday, whatever your project choice may be!
