keep guessing

i have had fun reading your guesses. keep them coming. i will not confirm or deny any of the "secrets" except the one that i am preggers. that was cute, though.

i am still going to keep the prizes a secret too but will tell you that there is a skein of socks that rock, a ball of opal, and a ball of trekking. if i get more than 100 guesses, i may decide to add another prize.

i finally got a copy of cat bordhi's "new pathways for sock knitters." the sock construction is fascinating. i did knit the pattern she had in vogue last year. now to find the time to knit a few of her sample socks.

i am on clue 6 of my ms3. i made mistakes so spent time tinking back. i just made another mistake a couple of rows back but i think i am leaving that one in. the rows are getting a bit too long to tink back. and i am really bad with lifelines. i put them in, only to find that i made a mistake in that row. or i don't put one in often enough so when i do have a mistake, i would have to frog 2-3" of knitting. i am not sure if it is laziness or stupidity. anyways, i spend a lot of time tinking.

i am planning on going to stitches west next month...just to market. anyone else thinking of going?

Is it cheating if I just saw your secret let out of the bag on someone's stash on Ravelry?

In any case, congratulations on your pattern being the first one for Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin Sock Club 2008! Love the colorway theme Tina picked for us and I'm looking forward to knitting up your pattern just as soon as Mr/Ms Postal Worker shows up w/my package. ;)

PS. I'm still debating on whether or not to go to Stiches, but if I go, want to car pool?

I believe my buddy, tapmouse/Leslie, told me we live in the same town.

Your pattern's the first for STR? yay! I'm waiting for my package... (waiting waiting waiting) Now I'm even more excited.

Congrats on the BMFA pattern!!!! I haven't got mine yet, but I know it will be wonderful!

I can't believe you only got to the new Cat book recently! Awesome, isn't it?

I am about 80% going to SW. Actually, I guess now it is 99.9% since I spoke with my friend last night who convince me I need to go and she will keep me in check with the spending!

I think I'm going to take the knitting backwards one-hour session while there. Maybe we'll bump heads over at BMFA? Or maybe you and Nartian will end up tugging on that same blue-colorwayed STR skein!-lol!

I JUST GOT MY RSC PACKAGE!!! Your pattern is awesome and I am so excited about yours being the first of the year! How cool and just in time for the Lunar New Year! Congratulations!!!

But we still don't know if *this* is your secret, do we?

PPS. I got my STR package yesterday! Woohoo! Love it. Now to finish my Salish Seas so I can get to yours.

Knitting Mama said...

Ok, wait.. are you or are you not pregnant? You didn't clarify that in your post! LOL...

I just read that you did the pattern for BMFA's Jan kit. I didnt get mine in the mail yet (hoping tomorrow!) CONGRATS!

I will be in touch shortly about the design for my club kit - it's just been a busy week :)

Oh man, I want that pattern! Is it only available to RSC members? It's just beautiful, Adrienne, as usual.
