Knotty Knitter and Wound Too TIght, c'mon down
Darcy, Knotty Knitter's blogwriter, and Deb, Wound Too TIght's blogwriter, are the winners of my contest. Everyone else can just read the next paragraph and say.....shoot I didn't win! (, collectively ) Darcy, wahoo! A friend of Grace's. I'm thrilled for you. Thank you for all the comments y ou've left since you found me with the contest post. Deb, I swear there was no favoritism shown for fellow Gorgeous Golden Retriever regular commentor, mom of Holli. However, I was delighted when your name was pulled. Now, Deb, you get to pick which of the sock yarns you would like. Darcy will get the other.
I'm still knitting away at the plain stockinette baby blanket. I love the colors. I am also on the lookout for a small shrug pattern that has BIG bell arm sleeves that come just above my elbow. In other words, I need to cover my large upper arms or I won't like how it looks. I have a scar on one upper arm that makes it superugly, too. Al believes, 3 Bags Full has a pattern that I might like.
I feel another tissue cover knit coming on......as for how much yarn is needed to make one:
I've been using sock yarns that are leftover. These leftover balls of yarn are between the size of a smallish orange and a largish plum. Does that help? If anyone wants, I'll post a picture of about how much I've used, next to something for comparison.
I'm still doing the wee tiny bite bit. I find salads incredibly hard to comply with. !!!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
