Stay Tuned....

Happy Monday Blogland!
This is a short and sweet post to remind you all to stay tuned, my blog contest will begin shortly, definitely this week...but when?! No one knows, but I can tell you that it's going to be fun! And, I will be giving away some cool knitty gifts. And, that's all you get out of me on this topic now!

On the knitting front, I couldn't stand it and had to knit up the Malabrigo that I got in the mail last week. Boys and girls, it knits like a dream!! I didn't know exactly what I wanted to knit with it so I did end up writing a pattern for it...a yummy scarf entitled "A Touch of Whimsy" and the pattern link can be found on the sidebar.

I went out of town with my Music Man yesterday and on the ride I finished the leg on the 2nd sock as well as continuing (until I ran out of yarn!) to work on a shrug I'm knitting for my niece. I am winging it, no measurements, so...let's just hope it fits! I'm following the standard sizing for a 6 year old. I didn't think that I would get as much work done as I did, so I didn't bring the other skein of yarn with me...luckily, I had the sock to work on! All in all, a fun day trip with MM and a successful knitting car trip!
STAY TUNED

Your scarf is very pretty. I love the name you came up with for the pattern, too. Good luck on your niece's shrug. I bet she'll love it.

The scarf is just beautiful - I can't wait for the matching hat pattern (hint hint!!!!). I have some lovely Suri Merino that I bought to make something for me which has now been earmarked for this pattern. It is getting cold here so start that hat pattern! ;) (just kidding of course!) You are so creative and wonderful for sharing your pattners with us!

Had to post and tell you that my knitting worlds are colliding! Your blog and your scarf have been FEATURED on my YahooGroup (InStitchesWPB)!!

I was so proud to say that I "know" you and could brag on what a talented knitter you are; and so generous with your awesome patterns.

MWAH! You go girl!
