And the Winner is...

I didn't forget about my giveaway, and I've had so much fun reading everyone's comments, but somehow it' been over  a week from the time  I said I was going to pick a winner! I used a very scientific method...I asked my son to pick a number between one and twenty-three, and he chose eleven, which means that you're the winner, Rani! I know that whatever you knit with it will get good use, considering how long your winters are! Thanks to everyone for "playing." I wish I had enough yarn for everyone....well, actually, I probably do....I just don't want to part with it, ha, ha.

I don't have much to show for my week and a half away from my blog. My daughter has long made fun of me for being boring with my wardrobe. If I like a shirt, I'll buy it in three or four different colors. If I like something, I like it, what can I say.  So in that tradition, I decided to knit another pair of L'amour socks. Coincidentally, I knit it using one of the three different sets of Lorna's Laces sock yarn that I own which are slightly different shades of purple. At least I'm consistent.

(screaming) I WON!?!?? I WON!??!?? Wheeeeeeeeeee! I am thrilled! In fact, I was just having dinner with my family and lamenting on the lame EZ surprise baby sweater I'm knitting - it's a test of my patience, I tell you . . .

And I said, THAT'S IT! BACK TO SOCKS! And my 7 year old daughter said . . . but what about winter mittens or a hat for me? So that's exactly what I'll do. I think I'll make a hat with that very pretty yarn. Can't wait.

A woman after my own heart! I always buy more than one of what I like in different colours. If it's comfortable and looks good, why not? We only ever wear about 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time anyway, so why not improve on the statistics by buying stuff you know you'll wear?

Love the new socks!

Congrats Rani!

It's so much easier to knit a pattern a second time, if it was a good pattern. I often do this, but I'd also probably be considered to have a boring wardrobe by a teenager. ;)
