Three prizes will be awarded. In the past year, I have learned to love socks and lace, and I've always been a sucker for knitting books. So those seemed like appropriate choices.
Prize Number One is, naturally, sock yarn! I've been singing Jessie's praises ever since my first purchase of her beautiful yarn. This skein is very similar, though not identical, to the "Mystery" colorway I used for my last rib and cable socks.
Next up, laceweight! I have two skeins of Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Peppermint and two skeins in Stream. Plenty for more than one lace project, used either doubled or not. Because I am being a little lazy, click the link for a picture!
Finally, a knitting book! I thought about raiding my extensive stash, but I wanted to make sure the winner got a book not on his or her shelf. So, the winner will let me know the title of the book of his/her dreams and I will purchase it and ship it or have it shipped to the appropriate location. May I make some suggestions? Only caveat: Must be in print. I'd love to be able to get you that out-of-print Alice Starmore treasure on eBay, but sadly, I cannot. Gotta save up for that apartment in Paris. Haha.
Rules: Anyone living on this planet can enter. Winners will be chosen at random. (All hail the random number generator!) You only need to enter once. I thought of making a quiz or asking questions like, Who is my rock-and-roll boyfriend? What color is my favorite blouse? If I had an indie pop band, what would it be called? True or false: I was the homecoming queen my senior year in high school.* But I decided to forego all that. Just leave a non-anonymous comment between now and midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday. Say hi. Say I want yarn. Say whatever. I'll draw from all the commenters. Winners will be revealed on Friday or Saturday.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I am occupied anxiously awaiting the episode of my new favorite TV show, Project Runway. Minty and Glaistig's frequent praises led me to start watching it this season and I am already hooked. Two words: Tim. Gunn. Tim Gunn! I love him.
* Correct answers revealed with the winners. As if anyone cares.
