I Won Yarn!!
Just when I was feeling sorry for myself for having to miss both Stitches East and Rhinebeck (where every other blogger in the knitting universe seems to have gone...), I got an email (on my birthday, no less!) that I won the contest I had entered on Yarn4socks.com! Today my gorgeous skein of Schaefer Anne arrived. I have been wanting to knit with Anne for a long time, and now I'll have the chance. I will probably use it for socks, but I will check out other ideas on Ravelry. The skein is a beautiful mix of fall colors: oranges, golds, and a tawny brown. I LOVE IT!! Thank you so much, Valerie!!
In other news, my Branching Out for my ISE5 pal is just about finished--I should be able to cast off tonight, and then will probably block the scarf later this week. It will be my first time using the blocking wires I bought a year ago, but given my new infatuation with lace, I don't think it will be the last.
