Contest Updates and Prizes!
The Pre-Blogiversary Contest Contest is officially closed. Thanks to everyone who sent in ideas! I shall announce the winner and her idea (starting the Actual Blogiversary Contest) on Monday, August 27th, my official First Blogiversary. But don’t think you can’t win a prize this weekend! If I get the usual number of comments on this post, someone will be the 1000th commenter and win a prize! So what are the prizes? Let’s take a look–
Left to right: Sleeping Dragon Superwash Merino in Pool, Seacoast Handpainted Merino/Tencel in Silver and Gold, Fleece Artist Sockomo in Autumn.
I’ve been in contact with Anne, the totally fab designer of Knitspot fame, and we have worked out how I can provide each winner with the Knitspot pattern of the winner’s choosing. You pick the pattern, I pay the bill. I’ll be picking some patterns for myself too (Wing o’ the Moth, Honeybee stole, orchid scarf, etc., etc.). I think this is a brilliant plan, if I may say so. I was surprised I was able to think of it. I really appreciate Anne’s enthusiasm and help–she figured out instantly how we could do this.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll be knitting on the first sleeve of the Minimalist Cardi and swatching some archaic cable to rework a sock cuff that wasn’t turning out to be all that it could be.

Beautiful yarns! Thanks for the fun contests and excitement. Love your blog!
Came over from Ravelry to look at your Minimalist Cardigan. It’s looking great and I’m looking forward to seeing it progress. Good inspiration to add it to my queue.

That Sockomo Autumn says it wants to come live with me. 😀
