A few things, almost all knitting related today!
First off I finished my second Catkin on the weekend, on the 31st to be exact. I love hand-died one of a kind yarns and I have a thing for buying local and Art-By-Ana is all that and cushy and wonderful on top! I have also yet to meet one of her wonderful yarns that ran when I washed it or wasn’t just as wonderful to knit with as it was to pet. Almost all the darker commercial yarns I’ve used do and since I love to mix a light and a dark colour her’s is a wonderful thing.
Catkin is now blocking on my bed & will be ready to ware tomorrow!
Ana of Art-by-Ana (Rav group) had been running a contest in March, knit something with one of her hand made yarns (go check them out (etsy page), her stock is a little low at the moment, but go look, they’re pretty! And there will be a whole lot more up over the next couple of weeks.). I figured, it was the 11th hour but what they hey! I also wanted to share this shawl because I loves it so.
Went out for brunch with a bunch of knitters to kick off the April-June KAL (the Forest Path Stole won 4-2 so that’s what I’m going to knit.) which will have it’s own post tomorrow.
When I got back I had a message saying that I’d won the draw! I’ve been squealing ever since. I never win draws, ever, well up to now anyway. The prize is one of her wonderful sock garden party cakes and a notions bag I’ve been trying to figure out what to knit with it!
