Winner!

I’ve been knitting like crazy, but I had to step away from the knitting for a little bit. I can’t see my chart.

This is another Kerfuffle Cowl, this time in Knit Picks Swish Tonal; the colors are Inkwell and Pearlescent. I should be able to get two cowls out of the two skeins of yarn, but I may have to reverse the colors for the second one. The scale will tell me when I’m done with the first one! Do you use a kitchen scale for your knitting? It’s really helpful for me when I’m designing and need to know if I have enough yarn for what I have planned.

I’ve also been doing a little crochet lately. Just chain stitch. I’ve been making beaded bracelets, and I’m going to lead a workshop on these at Twisted on November 10, noon to 2 p.m. We made some of these at a birthday gathering of Crafty Moms on Sunday, and everyone did great, even the non-crocheters. Come to class and see how!

And the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The winners of the stitch markers are Katnipon and Judi. Congratulations! I’m emailing the winners.

I wish I had enough stitch markers for everyone. Here are links to my tutorials if you want to make beaded stitch markers of your own:

Stitch markers made with wire pins (flat head or eye pins)

Stitch markers made with flex wire

Have fun!
