Kathy from Kathy b's Yarn Garden had a contest a couple weeks back and I won!!! I was expecting some REALLY nice Malabrigo, but she threw in some extra goodies for the fun of it. This is what I got in the mail last week.
Isn't that a great package?? I got the yarn and some Godiva chocolate (that didn't melt in its journey!! WOOHOO!) and these really cool coasters.
Here's a closer look at that lovely yarn.....
Another contest win from a long time ago was finally used, the Keychain Sock Blocker Sock.
Why is it that things are SO much cuter in miniature?!? I pulled out some Cherry Tree Hill left over from another sock and made this tiny guy. I will be making more, but I'll probably go up to a size 1 needle. The zeros were a bit hard on my hands. The only thing difficult abt this sock was using LONG needles for such LITTLE amounts of stitches. I tend to drop stitches when I use the short needles, but I bet those 4 or 5" needles out there would be perfect for this project.
To keep the sock theme going I worked a bit on my shorty cuffs after my dilemma with the charity sock.
They are a good mindless sock to work on, no thought required! Both the cream and print yarns are by Kroy.
What did you work on this wknd??
