It’s today! It’s today!
What’s today? The start of the Critter Knitters Knit-a-thon!
There is a page of information about this project here. I think everything you need to know to get started should be on that page. There are email links for Liz and me there as well, in case you have any questions.
And the page showing raffle prizes is here. Not all the prizes are listed yet, because a number of you generous people are donating prizes. I’m waiting until I receive a prize before listing it, so I can photograph it and post it on the page.
But take a look — there’s a lot of wonderful stuff there already. And be sure to check back often.
The very talented Liz made us buttons for this project. I put one in my sidebar, linking to the project information page. There are several located on the main knit-a-thon page.
Please feel free to download one and post it on your own page and link to our project pages. The more people who see the button the better.
March Contest Winner!
The March contest winner is Bethany, who submitted this gem:
I washed my vest of pure wool
In hopes it would tighten a pull
When it came out, my vest
Barely covered one breast
And that’s how I learned how to full!
I’ll post more limericks this week — there were so many great ones! My two judges had a very difficult time picking a winner — but they both agreed that Bethany’s contribution was fabulous.
As do I.
My Spirit Trail Blueface Leicester Wool
What shall I knit with the Blueface Leicester wool pictured in Friday’s blog entry? It’s too delicious for words! I have 400 yards of yarn that knits up 21-24 stitches/4″ on US 4-6 needles.
Any ideas, anyone?
I did get one full pattern repeat done over the weekend.
Lucy wants to email all her friends and let them know!
Or perhaps she’s emailing them to say “Beware the Ides of March.”
