Which is two days after the pattern giveaway closed! And we have a winner! Congratulations to commenter number five, Lorraine! Look for my email so I can get that pattern to you!

If you didn’t win, don’t fret too much–I’ll definitely be hosting another pattern giveaway soon. : )

In other knitting news, I’m still working on my Sassy Ribs socks. They currently look like this:


I still have about a plum-sized ball (2 inch diameter) of yarn to go on both socks (I’m trying to use up allt he yarn). I’m not crazy about the colors in the yarn, but it was super cheap (like $6.50 for the pair) and they’ll be nice and warm for winter. And they’ll be mostly hidden in my shoes/under my jeans anyway.

I’ve made a good bit of progress on them mostly because I took them with me to Busch Gardens on Monday and knit on them in line. I stuffed them into a fanny pack, so I could take my “loose object” in line for roller coasters and such.


Busch Gardens, by the way, has sheep. Scottish Blackface Sheep, to be exact. They’re over by the Clydesdales and the sheep dogs and the park does Sheep Dog/Herding demonstrations every couple of hours. I didn’t get to watch one, unfortunately. I think it would have been pretty cool.


I finished an item from the challenge I posted about before! From these fish beads and little green beads:


and some jewelry findings, I made fish earrings!


I think the little green beads look like bubbles.


I made two pairs: one for me and one for a gift, as per the challenge. But who is the recipient of this gift? Why, it’s one of you lucky readers! That’s right: This challenge has inspired our first giveaway!
