Waaaaaah! I'm so sad about this turn of events re Dulaan. If you take a look at my Gallery of Finished Items for 2007, I'd guess 95% of them were for Dulaan. Shee-it. But anyway, onward and upward. We will find ourselves a bunch of good outlets for our charitable knitting, RIGHT? I won't settle for less. Nosireebob. I know of Afghans for Afghans and CIC, for starters. Cookie and I were frantically emailing back and forth yesterday afternoon, and she found Warm Woolies, which looks very promising. And there always seems to be no shortage of knit drives to serve more local needs in the winter, as well. Bring 'em ON! (Let us know if you know of some, too.) [Meanwhile, do what Ryan is doing and make a date with some Red Scarf yarn.]
So, about that Magic 28 contest, then:
Marianne (Everyone wish Marianne good luck with her move...) has donated some g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s
stitch markers she made as prizes. What say we have a little Magic 28
contest, then, eh? Are you up for knitting some little socks, or even just
having good intentions?
Send me an email by Friday evening, August 3, at midnight EST at norma[dot]knits[at]gmail[dot]com, with the subject line "Magic 28 stitch markers," and tell me how many Magic 28 socks you hope and intend to knit in 2007. (even if it's zero, that's fair game, too)
That's all you have to do. It'd be nice if you also join our ring and knit some Magic 28 socks to warm some cold feet, but I'll leave it to you whether or not to do so. How easy am I? There are three sets of high-quality, very pretty stitch markers to give away. Wanna see 'em?
Go ahead, email: Make my day!
Look, I finished the orange pair. Aren't you proud?
Yesterday I had a much-needed day at home to work on transcripts. Well, a big transcript did indeed get done (almost 200 pp.), but a fair bit of relaxing and knitting got done too.
Lunch looked like this:
Zucchini picked in the garden that morning, sauteed in walnut oil with fresh dill, salt and pepper, served on a slice of Ezekiel toast with melted Jarlsburg. Holy cow, but that was good.
