Hi friends, Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I dusted off the sewing machine on Saturday for some quality patchwork time (more about that tomorrow), then spent most of yesterday working on my mitts. They're really coming along! [caption id="attachment_1243" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="To knit the liners, I picked up stitches at the bottom of the mitt, then ripped out the waste (yellow) yarn. The liners will be folded inside the mitts. It's a neat trick."] [/caption] All I have to do now is knit the liners, which I think (hope!) will go quickly. With any luck they'll be finished before the temperature dips back below zero. Now, on to last week's giveaway. I was pleasantly surprised by the response to Giveaway #37; I owe a shout-out to Kerry Bogert herself for sending her readers my way (and thus opening up a whole new part of the craft blogging world for me to explore!). Thanks, Kerry! If you'd like to see what's going on in the jewelry-making side of the craft-blogosphere, I encourage you to check out some of the links in the comments on last week's giveaway post. So neat. The prize, of course, is a copy of the brand-spankin'-new book Totally Twisted: Innovative Wirework & Art Glass Jewelry by Kerry Bogert, from Interweave Press. As usual, I let the Random Integer Generator do all the hard work... And lucky Number 92 is... Congratulations, Kari! I'll be in touch with details shortly. Tune in a little later today for Giveaway #38. See you soon.
