Itty Bitty Spider

Pattern: Itty Bitty Spider by Lisa Knits
Yarn: Encore DK #194 (Heather Grey), Encore DK #217 (Black), Dreambaby DK #100 (White)
Comments: Yea, I know I said I wasn't going to knit anything else for the shop. What can I say. I was in the mood.

The hat is adorable and very easy to knit. I have a ton of yarn left over. At least enough to knit another hat.

The Lisa Knits pattern line also has an Easter and Christmas hat. Those may be in my sample future as well.

And the winners are.....

Aprilynne & Rachel!

Rachel will be receiving the Waterfall Scarf kit, because she lives up north and can actually wear a scarf. Aprilynne is the lucky winner of the One Skein Wonder kit. Congrats ladies! I'll email you both to get your mailing addresses. Thank you all for playing (and reading my blog.)

Margaux & Contest

Click on Pictures to See Detail

Pattern: Margaux by French Girl

Yarn: Rowan Ribbon Twist #119 Rascal (white), Rowan Ribbon Twist #122 Regency (burgundy) - 6 balls each

Notes: The pattern calls for a size #15 needle, but I used a #13 in the hopes of making the xs size even smaller. It is still a bit big on the girls, but they love it anyway. Can you tell?

Now, for the contest. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the day I learned how to knit. Little did I know what a life changing day that would be. Knitting has given me immeasurable pleasure, and a career to boot! I am going to have two drawings. The first will be a kit to make the Waterfall Scarf, and the other will be a kit to make a One Skein Wonder. Just leave a comment with your email address. Contest ends Sunday 4:00pm. Good luck!
