FO and a prize

I finished a pair of fingerless mitts this week. Took less than a week to do - they were my take a long project for the Zooz on Sunday and the Stitch n Pitch on Tuesday - and they were finished on Thursday - amidst stomach ache and unwell feelings. Love them and pretty much need them as the evenings drop to about 13 degrees (50 to 60). The scarf that was an FO and is now a WIP has just the final edge to go - about 19 rows of seed stitch and I added a pattern repeat.

I won a prize. Not a blog prize, but an online prize.
The Old Mill Knitting Contest. Every month they post their contest- little fanfare or warning and you enter and then on with your life. Saturday afternoon, I was catching up on my emails and stuff and wasn't quite done playing, so I hit some of my different yarn store links. One was the Old Mill and their contest was posted, so I entered. And I won!!! As I can't win for another year, I suggest you haunt their site for September's contest. I am going to receive Naturally Aspire DK (which looks like a single ply like malabrigo) with a coordinating pattern. I AM SO EXCITED. This really made my day, as we have to rip down another wall before we can proceed with the bathroom and that means another 100$$ at least in materials. argh.

Oh and for some totally awesome designs - go check out Jacquelyn Landry. Got to get me some of that curves.
