Ok, here's the deal... I'm still knitting on the shawl. I am on row 12 (out of 17) of the edging, and then I will be done. I think I will be fine - which completely amazes me, that I knit this whole thing since Monday evening. I will have time to block it and I'm no longer saying "if it comes out nicely" although that is still in the back of my head - I really am planning to give it away. It will be nice to be done (although I am still enjoying the knitting, not hating it yet). I am looking forward to knitting something else with my own homespun yarn soon (not right away though).
I will return to knitting and try to get some nice pictures of it before I gift it but after I block it.... I noticed, however, that this is my 100th post. I know that's not that many, but it sounds pretty cool to me, so it's time for my first ever contest. (...and yes, I do just love comments, but I also want to mark this number in some way!) All you have to do is comment between now and Wednesday (june 27th) midnight (east coast usa time) and I will randomly select a winner. Please include your email in the comment (such as lucybw at gmail dot com) and the only other thing you have to include is your favorite post or FO or WIP (that's finished object and work in progress translated for my sister) that I've done on this blog. The winner will receive a nice crafty/yarny surprise package in the mail - those related to me are eligible, except for my sweet husband, who has all the yarn he needs right now (except for some solid sock yarn, of course - socks... socks!)
So, enjoy.. discuss amoungst yourselves, and enter!
note: as this is my first contest, if I get only two entries, they both win! ...more than two, I randomly draw! :) lol
