January 24th, 2007Okay, so technically January 19 was my first blogiversary. I'm bad with dates. It's hard to beleive it's been a year already. In that year I became a wheel spinner, and a published author, participated in NaNoWriMo and the Knitting Olympics and had a total blast. Contest time. Leave me a comment. I'll select one at random and the person selected will receive this hat. Pattern: One skein Noro hat Yarn: Noro Kureyon color 88 Thanks for reading, commenting, and e-mailing me this last year. I had fun. In other news, I finished these socks. The pattern is available over on the sock knitalong page. The yarn is Step. The legs are long and the stripes are wide and I was convinced I'd run out of yarn if I skipped down to make them identical. I shouldn't have worried. Step has very generous yardage and theres is ample yarn left over. I'll know for next time. I need to use a get out of jail free card. I thought I'd ordered angora. I ordered from a place called "Angora Farms". The website kept going on about how they specialized in angora yarn. I really thought it was angora. It's merino. I checked and the description of the yarn does say 100% merino so my goof. It's a wonderful yarn and I will use it, but it's not allowed in the rules so one demerit for me.
