We are having so much fun! Our yarn bowl giveaway has generated 85 comments! It is so interesting to read how each of you began knitting. I am noticing a trend with Grandmas! We thought it would be so exciting to reach 100 comments. So, we need your help to get there! My father is so pleased with the kind words about his hand-thrown knitting bowls. So he is willing to give away an additional yarn bowl, if we reach our goal! Increase your chances of winning by either commenting, (if you haven’t done so already) or by telling a friend to enter, tweeting about our giveaway, or pinning this giveaway on your Pinterest board. I think we can reach 100 by midnight tonight! ENTER HERE.
We started this blog in October, and the past 5 months have really been a great experience for us! We love to read all of your comments – we feel like we get to know you through them!
I tried to finish my Girasole for this morning. I stayed up late knitting, until my eyes kept closing on their own (for me 10:00 is late). When my alarm went off at 4:40, I fought with myself, but did get out of bed and knit for a couple more hours before the boys woke up. Then I timed myself, and realized that if I did a 6 row pattern repeat every minute and a half, I still have hours of uninterrupted knitting to do! But I will have the finished, blocked photos for tomorrow. (I hope.)
I have never enjoyed a project as much as this one. I am enjoying everything about this afghan, including the bind off – which is 640 stitches of picot. I think it will be worth every stitch and hand cramp that I am experiencing lately.
