Have you gotten your entry for the blogiversary contest in yet? How about increasing your chances of winning? Do I need to remind you about the prize?
Happy Saturday! I loved getting my mail yesterday because I had two knitting-related items waiting for me. One was a package from Scout's SWAG with a beautiful set of martini sock blockers and a medium-sized Go-Knit pouch. The sock blockers are perfect to show the true progress I've made on the test-knit socks (and reassure me that I really did get the gauge correct). Plus, the GoKnit pouch is big enough to hold the in-progress socks as well as both skeins of yarn for the project and it looks a lot nicer than the big ZipLoc bag I was using.
And there's a bonus! The sock blockers came with the cutest little martini-glass stitch marker! Fun and useful, too!
The other item in the mailbox was my copy of Creative Knitting. Lots of nice projects in this issue, including a very cute Spring Dishcloth pattern. I cast on and made one of these beauties. I love the pattern. It has just enough texture to be useful and is very pleasing to the eye.
