It’s all Mermaid all the time here at WendyKnits.
I estimate that I’ve got about two evenings worth of knitting left on the body of Mermaid. And I just went past the halfway point on the first sleeve in my commuter knitting.
So, the end is in sight. It’s pretty far down the road, but it is in sight.
Would you do another one of Hanne Falkenberg’s designs?
A picture is worth a thousand words.
That’s Falkenberg’s “Ballerina” in the black and tan colorway.
I’ve not touched the Frostrosen mitten since Sunday before last. I’ve been tempted a few times, but have stood firm. I know if I get into mitten knitten I’ll want to abandon Mermaid altogether.
I have, however, allowed myself to do some spinning.
Speaking of spinning, check out this cozy family group:
Notice anything new? Hmmmmmm?
That’s a bouncing baby Majacraft Gem, which just arrived today. Isn’t she cute?
In celebration of the new baby wheel . . . a contest!
Guess the New Spinning Wheel’s Name
She’s got a name, but I ain’t telling what it is. Can you guess?
Send an email to The Official WendyKnits Contest Email Address by 5:00pm EST on Thursday, November 17 with your guess for the name. One entry per person, and only entries sent to that email address will be entered in the contest.
First person who guesses correctly wins. If no one guesses the exact name, I’ll select the guess that comes closest.
If the winner is a spinner, said winner will receive this:
4 ounces of yummy wool roving dyed a rich wine color.
Not a spinner? Then the lucky winner will get some of my crappy handspun:
This is a 2 ounce skein of my handspun wool, approximately sport weight. Enough for a small pair of mittens or a pair of fingerless mitts.
So . . . send those guesses in . . . to The Official WendyKnits Contest Email Address!
