Pre-Holiday Giveaway!

Christmas is only weeks away, and I'm having a yarn/pattern book giveaway that might be perfect for that last-minute project.

The prize:  a skein of Malabrigo Sock in "Abril" and a copy of The Magic Loop - a tutorial for learning how to knit a sock or something that requires circular needles using one long circular needle.

To enter, all you need to do is one of the following:  
I will draw the winner on Wednesday, November 13th.  Good luck!!

It's definitely close to winter here in C-Town.  The temperature has been up and down (more often down) lately and I'm not a fan of the cold, especially when my boiler decides to extinguish the pilot light and it's night and getting chilly.  I seriously think I've caught a cold from my own home...

Sock progress:  this past weekend, I cast on for sock #2 of my Cadence Socks--didn't make it in time for SolidSocks October KAL, but will be done in time to qualify for SKA October Sockdown.  I am, once again, really enjoying this pattern.

Torn as to what project I should do next.  I've already begun sock #2 of my Dragonfly Socks (leftovers from a couple years ago, finishing them for a Mystery Tour KAL ).  I also am halfway down the leg of Pointelle, using Lorna's Laces Solemate in Navy Pier.  Enjoying Pointelle, but not a huge fan of patterns so complex that if I look away from the page, I'm immediately lost in the charts.

More pics to come!
