Drawn at random from the entries received, the winner of the Sock Contest is Marga in Japan. The complete list of URLs for free sock patterns is here, and will be linked to from my Knitting Page.
Thanks as usual to everyone who sent me an entry.
Here is my second Booga Bag before felting.
This photo demonstrates that vodka and knitting do not mix.
Here it is after being felted.
The bag went through two cycles in the washer and felted down more than the last one I made, most likely because the washer was emptier — I only put one towel in with it. I thought I was going to have to send the bag through three cycles, so this was a pleasant surprise.
Lucy is more interested in her dinner, though.
I’ve started yet another bag in color 89 — I’ll show you what it looks like tomorrow.
I finished the body! I finished the body!

And the back neck steek:
And I’ve just barely started a sleeve.
I think I’ll be able to announce raffle winners tomorrow! Stay tuned!
