Just for fun, a photo of the sky this morning a little after 6:00am:

I love the sky when it has a pinkish hue!

Speaking of a pinkish hue, I am knitting along on Sandvik. I actually got a fair bit done last night, for which I congratulated myself a little more than was really necessary.

It’s a relatively easy pattern — you have a lot of the same stuff over and over so at this point a glance at the chart now and then does it for me.

It’s the purling back rows that slow me down because I get so bored.

I’m working on a design for a rectangular shawl that has lace patterning on every row — that’ll keep me awake while I knit!

Please to Note

If you want to be entered in the pattern drawing, you need to leave a comment on Sunday’s blog post with a movie title with a state name in it. I mention this because there are a lot of comments on yesterday’s post with state names.

To draw the winner, I go into WordPress and look at the comments for Sunday’s entry only, see how many total comments there were and generate the random numbers within that range of numbers. Then I can easily find the winning numbers from within that group of comments. The comments from other entries aren’t among this group. This is the least labor-intensive way for me to do it. I need to be spending time knitting on my pink blob, not entering comments in a spreadsheet. icon wink Sunrise

Happy Anniversary, Loopy!

If you read Sheri’s blog (and if you don’t, why the heck not?) you will see that she’s got another anniversary contest going on — to enter, all you have to do to enter is leave a comments saying where you first heard about The Loopy Ewe on this blog post. Reading through the comments, it makes me very happy to see how many people I’ve enabled into shopping at The Loopy Ewe.

Loopy rules!

Lucy grudgingly agreed when I told her that she rules more.
