Keep your eyes on the prize…

Because you have another chance to win! I received an email from Cristi (Turtlegirl76). Sometimes a comment is just a comment; she didn’t mean to enter the contest. She’s not a dpn knitter (but she does make a lot of socks), and would like me to redraw for the sox stix. I offered her the yarn and cake, but she graciously declined because she thinks it should all go together.


So another trip to the random number generator, and the number is 22, or the 22nd comment. Marie, you’re the new winner! And as a new sock knitter, I hope you enjoy these goodies.

In other news, I finished my fourth Athena yesterday. It looks just like the last one:


Except it has 9 blocks around instead of 8. But no new picture; you know what it looks like!

Drum roll for the winner please…

And the winner of the drawing for the Lantern Moon Sox Stix is…


Turtlegirl76! I’ve added a couple things to the prize package, too. The yarn is fingering weight, hand dyed by Knitted Wit. I love the colors of this yarn, but when I started to knit with it, I realized that I’m just not a skinny yarn knitter. All my socks are sport or DK, or even worsted! Also included is a cute cake keychain, also from Lantern Moon. Have fun, Cristi! Please send me your snail mail addy, and I will send your package out this week.

Edit: It turns out that Cristi’s not a dpn knitter! See the next post for the new winner…after checking out the blogs mentioned below.

And here are the blogs that I think you should check out:

Emilee Knits: Emilee is working her way through the Barbara Walker treasuries, doing a swatch a week. I’m enjoying seein the swatches, and Emilee’s commentary on the stitch patterns.

Earthtones Girl: Denise is a fantastic knitter, and a big fan of Elizabeth Zimmermann. You can see it in her projects. A woman after my own heart!

Princess Pea: Anna lives in the UK, and knits exquisite things. Tea cosies, Jared Flood’s druid mitts, anything! Her photography is lovely.

Turtlegirl76: Cristi (yes, the same Cristi who won the Sox Stix!) is an amazing knitter; I love seeing her projects. And her cats, Ripple and Calvin!

Smariek Knits: Marie loves cables. Me, too. Her scarves and mitts are in many Ravelry queues, and she’s just finished her first socks.

We Do Not Have a Knitting Problem aka IrishGirlieKnits: Carrie is a big fan of BMFA, and I can see why. I love looking at her projects.

What Katy Did: Katy is a local blogger, and I found out last month that we have a mutual friend in real life. Small world. Check out Katy’s Kiki Mariko.
