Giveaway Day #5: The Missing Week

Hi! Gosh, I missed you folks this week. I got too busy editing patterns and knitting up samples for photo shoots and such. I hope next week finds me blogging a lot more.

How about another giftie?
This week we have some of the lovely Shalimar Zoe Sock 100% Superwash Merino in Pillow Mint. I gotta tell ya, I must love you guys, because this is a lovely yarn in a lovely colorway that apparently they no longer make (sigh). If you'd like this package with yarn, ChiaoGoo bamboo-handled size D crochet hook and a Mirth T-shirt, just go over the rules and leave a pertinent comment for me. I will leave this one up all weekend like last time. That was fun! 


 And seeing as how it is FO Friday, I'll show you the two cardigans I finished up this week. The one in back is a size 8 V-neck in Cascade Rustic and the one in front a size 6 V in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky. They are ready for little models!

And speaking of little models, look at just one of the shots from the Grandtwins' recent photo shoot down in GA.
If that doesn't make your heart well up, then you'd better check your pulse.

I don't know any Junebugs personally with birthdays this week, so please tell us if you do so we can celebrate them!

Have a fun weekend!

The yarn is lovely! Being a new sock knitter I'm really interested in getting my hands on lots of different sock yarns to try. If I won, though, I'd be happy to share my prize with someone else - since I'm not a crocheter!

Your grandtwins are absolutely adorable! So pretty, both of them!

And I love the little cardigans, I hope you find someone to model them soon.

Wow that yarn is pretty, but not as much as the twins!

Great cardigans too :)

Julie said...

The yarn is beautiful, I know I could find something gorgeous to make with the yarn and hook if I win!

Your Grandtwins are so adorable! So are the little cardigans.

I love knitting socks, but since they are pretty much the only thing I have ever knit, I would use the yarn for a shawl. Or maybe just another pair of socks... :)

The Pillow Mint colorway is simply yummy!!! Reminds me of 1950's decor. This yarns also reminds me of a quilt that my Aunt Rosie made me for me when I was a kid. The quilt had colorful circus animals all over it. I hadn't thought of that old quilt in a long time. . . The grandtwins are adorable!!!

The cardigans are lovely and so are the Grandtwins!! I'd love to enter for the beautiful sock yarn and make some socks!
Thanks :)

Oh how adorable! I love the dragonfly in the hair. And the curls!!

Lately I've been obsessed with knitting socks and therefore obtaining way more sock yarn than I could possibly knit (or so my fiance seems to think, I'm not sure I agree). However, one thing that I'm trying is to find intesting patterns to go with varigated and multi-colored sock yarns. This would be an excellent challenge as the yarn is so beautiful and I would want a pattern that didn't detract from the yarn, but was more interesting to knit than stockinette. Any ideas Jen?
