I Won a Contest!

I have been entering a bunch of contests on other blogs and Podcasts for some time now--I think it's a great way to be an interactive member of the blogger/Podcaster community.

One of the Podcasts I've been enjoying lately is SSK, featuring Shannon and Stephanie. I love the fact that they met online and are in two different parts of the country, yet knitting has brought them together, and then they've brought the rest of us into their conversation. Anyway, they had a drawing of entries on favorite vacation knitting. I put in an entry about knitting socks on vacation, and I WON! Don't know what I'll get yet, but I'm sure it will be great. Who doesn't love getting a surprise package in the mail! Go listen to the Podcast, it's very entertaining. Thanks again, Shannon and Stephanie!

The picture I had sent in is the very beginning of my Hederas for my Sockapalooza pal. Since I sent my entry to SSK, I've made some nice progress on Hedera #1, which I think looks lovely--about 2 more inches to go:


I may be in danger of running out of yarn, but the Socks that Rock Mustang Sally is still available, so I could always buy another skein--that way, I'd be able to use the rest for a pair of socks for me! The wine color, slightly variegated colorway is just gorgeous, and the Hedera pattern is definitely one I'd do again.
