A Blue Cowl and a Giveaway
I knit another cowl yesterday (the Delores Park Cowl) with yarn I'd received the day before from Eat.Sleep.Knit. My local yarn shop doesn't carry the chunky Malabrigo and I wanted to use the yarn that the pattern called for, so when Ravelry recommended Eat.Sleep.Knit in the online store options, I clicked it. Service was super-fast and my yarn arrived on a day (Monday) when most yarn shops are closed anyway. I'd never knit with the chunky before and I loved it, so it's definitely on my list to knit again. This serene blue is the Blue Surf colorway.
The cowl craziness is due to my wanting to find some quick knits for loved ones who need some warmth. They're one-skein, instant gratification projects and fast enough to knit during other ongoing projects.

So I'm having a giveaway for Socktoberfest! It's been a crazy couple of weeks here and stressful too, so I didn't get to blog about Socktoberfest like I had planned. On my initial Socktoberfest post, I showed you a sock-in-progress and several of you commented that you liked the color (Morello Mash), so I bought another skein to give away to a lucky reader to celebrate the end of Socktoberfest. Included in the package will be a mix CD created with the help of iTunes new "Genius" feature, which I love. (If you haven't tried it already, please do)! NO rules - just leave a comment and I'll draw a name based on the random number generator. You have until midnight (in YOUR local time zone) on October 31st to leave a comment!
