First, congratulations to Tracey of Frugal FuzzyBritches who left comment #3,000 here early in February! I didn’t even realize I was close to another milestone until I logged onto my dashboard and noticed the even number! She chose a gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe as her prize, and picked out an awesome color of Trekking XXL.

Second, Eryka of Spare Room Knits nominated me for a Kreativ award; thank you!

Here are my nominations, in alphabetical order:

Last week, I was occupied with several things: taking a technology break, working on a wonderful knitting project, and catching up on some TiVo recorded shows and the third season of Numb3rs. We had almost no sunshine last week, which for me is ideal TV-watching weather. When it’s sunny, the glare from my windows makes it hard to see my TV (I don’t use blackout curtains). I can’t wait to show you the finished project, but that’ll have to wait for Wednesday!

Meanwhile, I did finish a few little things earlier this month.


Some preemie hats for the k3tog drive.


And a square for The Dizzy Sheep’s United Blanket of Change afghan drive. It took a few tries to figure out my gauge and to achieve an appropriately proportioned peace symbol, but I’m happy with the results.

    I was very lax on my preemie hat production this year – I think I only got six done. I love the yarn your using.

    Again, thank you Harriet. I am really loving my new sock yarn. I think just plain ‘ol stockinette will do this colorway justice.

    How did I miss this?? (Too much late night blog reading, I guess) Thanks so much!! You just made my day! (Which was badly needed). I promise to play along as soon as I get back on my blogging feet. :-)
