Thanks to everyone who left me a comment! I asked Joey to pick a number and the winner is… Knitaroo! Love the cardboard tube/chopstick Niddy Noddy on her blog, it has 2 of my favourite elements – quick and cheap! Knitaroo, watch for an email from me and you can choose your monster pattern.
I have picked one of the three yarns below, and I gotta say, I am LOVING it! It took me two months to knit those (*&$^$&@@ing slip stitch socks, but I’ve whipped off the leg of this one in 24 hours. Wanna see?
I picked the Socks That Rock Rare Gem, which I got from their online Rare Gem sale last year. I’ve used the Medium weight STR before, and it was ok, but I LOVE this lightweight. It has a nice wooly feel to it (Yeah, I like my wool to feel like wool) without being itchy, and the colours are super. Lots of people have STR yarn, and they do have lots of nifty colours, but that this is a one-off, or an oops, or whatever makes me love it even more – like I have a unique one, so I am special. Me and the other zillion people who also have Rare Gems, but leave me to my delusions, ok? The pattern is called Jeck, and it is one of those dead-easy but looks great things that are so fun to find. I’d knit it again – actually I think Joey might like it, too, it’s plain enough for him.
Ok kids, have a happy weekend – it’s raining here, so I’m off to find a nice pice of couch and wrk on my socks 🙂
