I Won Something!

I'm so exited! I won a prize in Christine's Thankful Contest. My prize? Melanie's beautiful Moon Dance Stole pattern. It's so tempting to break my vow of no new projects, but I'm going to hold fast. As soon as I finish a couple of things though... Thank you, Christine, for hosting the contest and thank you, Melanie, for creating such a beautiful stole!

I've finished the first of my Christmas socks based on a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks.

I have cast on for the fraternal twin.

Congratulations, Alison!! That's so awesome!! :-) And you're so disciplined about not beginning any new projects. Don't you feel the lure of the Dark Side? ;-) Your sock is just gorgeous! You always do such beautiful work. Can't wait to see the completed pair!

Aww those are so cute. I love that book, so many good ideas, you could knit socks forever and never make two pairs alike.

Alison, Congratulations! I love that stole and am eyeing it now. A bit like the Faux Russian Stole's construction, no? I wouldn't blame you if you cast on....The sock looks great, by the way, very evenly knit. (thanks also for answering the dyeing q. on my blog, I replied to you there and then surfed here..)

The sock looks great! As do the shawl/scarves!

What is the pattern of the sweater you started by the way?

It is a wonderful book to do a knit along from!
