Eight years ago today, I starting blogging my knitting. While it seems like a million years ago, it also feels like it was just yesterday.
In honor of this auspicious occasion, if you leave me a comment and mention which of one my patterns available for sale in my Ravelry shop you might like to win, I will, throughout the weekend, arbitrarily and completely at my whim, send free copies of patterns to randomly selected commenters. Be sure you leave a valid email addy in your comment (email addresses are not displayed on the blog once the comment is published). Alternatively, if you tell me your Ravelry username in your comment, I can send the pdf as a gift through Ravelry.
This is for people who leave comments. Please do not email me. Please do not use the “Contact me” form from the link at the top of the page. To leave a comment, you must visit my actual blog (not respond to the entry emailed to you, should you be subscribed to my blog via email). Once at wendyknits.net, if you scroll down to the bottom of the post, you will see a link that looks something like this:
Click on the link that reads “x Responses” and it will open up the single page for the post. You will then need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see the form that you need to fill out to comment.
(All this “how to leave a comment” instruction might seem a little over the top, but every time I have a contest that requires the leaving of comments I get many, many emails from people who don’t know how to leave a comment.)
Here is the state of the project I showed you yesterday.
Ooh, a lace edging.
The yarn is Tilli Tomas Demi Plie. The color is “Natural.” I picked this up a couple of years ago when someone was having a great sale (kpixie, perhaps?) along with a pile of it in the Parchment colorway, which became a Hanging Garden Stole (a birthday gift for my sister-in-law — last year I think).
This yarn is 100% silk and has 290 yards to 50 grams, so it’s sort of a heavy laceweight. I love this yarn.
Oh, what is that an edging for?
You’ll see. It’s either going to look fabulous or be a monumental fail.
Have a great weekend! I hope to see a bunch of you at fibre space tomorrow.
