Baby Sweater Progress and a Giveaway!

The snow is falling (rapidly) here in NE Ohio.  It feels like January, but it's only November.  It's the perfect time to snuggle up in a warm blanket and knit something!

I've made significant progress on my Hug Me pullover.  I've completed the front and back sections, and am currently on sleeve #1.  I decided to go with the teal/sage green/chocolate color combination because I love how those colors look together.  It's been a pretty simple knit so far, and I'm hoping to get the sleeves done this week and attach them/finish the sweater this weekend.




I'm having a giveaway this week as well.  Up for grabs:  a skein of Cascade Heritage sock yarn in a pretty(and spring-like) lilac color, and a copy of The Joy of Sox by Linda Kopp.  I will draw a winner on Monday, November 24th, so enter by midnight on Sunday, November 23rd.



I have another copy of TJOS, and I've knit the Blue Crush socks out of it so far (well, one of the pair anyway) but there are so many great patterns in the book, you will have trouble deciding which one to knit first!

How to enter:

  • Leave a comment on this post (please include your Rav nickname so I can contact you if you are the winner)        or
  • Leave a comment on the Ravelry post about this giveaway in the 'Contests & Giveaways" forum.



You can get one extra entry if you:

  • Follow my blog  or
  • Follow me on Twitter (I am KnittingMama on Twitter).


Good luck and thanks for reading!
