"pms" contest

nope, it ain't me! and it's not "that" kind of "PMS".

nh knitting mama
is having a contest to promote her esty shop. she has some very pretty hand-dyed yarns. make sure you let her know that i sent ya! yep! she has extra entries! you can win some of her beautiful yarn. of course, if you win, you have to send it to me.

i am still working on my "serendipitys". i 've frogged the second sock about 3 or 4 times trying to get the striping to match up. yes, i am totally anal! i think i have the leg pretty close right now. one time, i was knitting too loose so the stripes were getting too wide. i have kinda learned how to control the "pooling" and "striping" to a certain extent.

i am also working on new designs for theknitter and robyn's nest. hair pulling out time; especially when i can't find a pattern that works with the yarn. am i bald yet?!

Every time I make a conscious effort to make my STR pair match, they won't. At best, I'll get a mirrored pair. And when I don't even try (the Salish Sea), it ends up matching. I bet it's some kind of Murphy's Law of knitting matched sock pairs.

Well, thanks to you, Adrienne, I have two skeins of her yarn on their way to me. I can't wait! Pumpkin Spice and the Wizard/Harry Potter colorway. Sam has claimed the HP colorway as his own.
