Big Yellow Taxi (and Yarnapalooza Winner #1)
The plan is this: I'll post every day this month (I can't believe I'm typing those words) and among other things, I'll announce the day's winner.
That said, can we have a drum roll please for our July 1 winner Chris Silker who can be found here. Chris, you'll find an email in your inbox. I have your package ready to ship in the morning.
See that big blob of eye-searing yellow? That's the first piece in my second EZ Garter Stitch Blanket. (Yes, garter stitch is addictive.) It's from my stash of Sirdar Nova Chunky (Chunky Nova?) and I hope to tone it down a little with some white. Or maybe I'll add orange (another favorite color) and make yarny candy corn. Either way I'm having way too much fun.
I also have Baby Surprise Jacket on the needles. Maybe a picture tomorrow. (I take terrible pictures.) I grabbed some Lion Brand Baby Soft from my stash (The Stash That Ate New Jersey) and jumped into it and it's certainly an interesting experience. More about that tomorrow too.
The hot pink scarf has doubled in length and I'm eyeing some gorgeous Muench Touch Me and thinking of casting on another Vintage Velvet.
Don't you just love this part of knitting when anything's possible and your needles are just dying to be put to good use? No frogging! No tinking! No dropped stitches! I swear I almost think I could knit a wedding ring shawl without lifelines.
