I am a firm believer in Karma.
Why is it then that I haven’t won the MegaMillions lottery yet? I’m giving away a skein of Wollmeise, for Pete’s sake!
I guess it’ll take a bit more than one skein of Wollmeise to pour enough goodness into my karma-pitcher to enable me to win the lottery. How about this then:
I, WendyKnits, do solemnly swear on Lucy’s widdle furry head, that if I were to win a lottery jackpot of millions of dollars, I would contact Claudia in Germany — the Wollmeise herself — and commission a special WendyKnits colorway, order at least 1000 skeins of said colorway, and give all but one skein away to my blog readers.
Are you listening, Karma?
Okay, to tell the truth, I did have a recent lottery win. See?
Speaking of Wollmeise . . . a few of you asked in the contest entry emails what special superpower I have that enabled me to snag some Wollmeise when it went up for sale at The Loopy Ewe. I was fortunate enough to be at a computer with a fast internet connection and checking the site when the Wollmeise went up. And I have the ability to shop at the speed of light. Ask anyone who knows me.
There was no email sent out to the Loopy Groupies for the Wollmeise update, by the way. But plenty of people were stalking it!
If it makes you feel any better, I totally missed yesterday’s Loopy Ewe shop update . . .
Hey, I finished the first Alana sock!
Here’s a close-up of the top:
I really really like it, but I thought of a little tweak, so I will likely knit another pair with the tweak before finalizing the pattern. I am, however, knitting the second sock of this pair to match the first sock, otherwise it would look odd. If I were knitting the socks for me, I’d likely knit the second sock with the tweak, but because these are gift socks, I want them to match. (See how thoughtful I am, Karma?)
Lucy wants to know what you would do if you won the lottery.
Well, really, she wants some Wildside Salmon treats.
