We have a winner (or two) October 21, 2009

Filed under: knitting,life — kathy @ 9:03 am

First, thanks to you, delightful friends, who’ve spent the past month reading the blog and commenting!  It was so nice to hear from you all, and I hope you enjoyed the reading part. For my part, I absolutely cannot believe how fast the past month went by. girlie3

I must also say that this was an extremely close contest—one comment clinched it!  But if you didn’t win this time, keep an eye open, as I will be having another contest again, probably in tandem with the opening of my new Etsy store: Talisman Knits in late November. I plan to sell special “knitting” jewelry, as well as stitch markers and special row counter bracelets.

So, without further adieu, the winner of the earrings is, Cyndy! I will be dropping the earrings in the mail in the next day or two, so you should have them very soon! Congratulations!

On my own knitting front, I’ve finished the February Girle Sweater, and it is indeed a winner, too. It fits the bug like a dream—she refuses to take it off. I think I done good. 🙂 girlie5

I haven’t had much time to work on CR’s Christmas sweater, but since he’ll be traveling on and off now for a bit, I’ll have a chance to work on it in the evenings after I’ve spent the day working on some new designs for my upcoming jewelry show on November 14th.

Well, I’m off to tidy my studio. It’s a tiny space and I really trashed it the other day looking for something. I cannot work in a chaotic space—I’ve tried and it’s useless. Believe me.

Anyway, thanks for visiting!! Come back soon! And please don’t stop commenting; I always like to hear from my pals, both old and new!

    The sweater is DARLING on your girlie! It looks great, nice work mom. And Miz Bug is stylin’ with it. She is a chic little lady.

    Congratulations Cyndy! Lucky girl.

    Have you posted pics of your studio? I think you did in a past post, I think. I’m going to sort through your archives to see if I can find it. just gotta picture you tidying up and getting ready for your show. Wish I could come to it. Hugs!
