Okay! Prizes are ready to be put in the mail today, so I took some pictures and away we go. First:
Megan suggested Bombay Blaze for this guy, which is so catchy I had to use it. But I wanted to update it to the city’s current name, so I altered it slightly to Mumbai Blaze. I know that destroys my requested alliteration, but I think it still works. I hope you don’t mind my creative license, but in case you’re mortally offended, Megan, this might soften the blow:
These are the last two skeins of Second Chance Sock, enough for a pair of socks or a scarf or a little fun something. I happen to know that Megan knows what to do with sticks and string, so I hope you like them!
The winning name for this color is Spring Seedling, which not only fits for this yarn, but served as inspiration to name the spring green color from a few days ago. CC came up with that one, and she is more into the seed thing than the string thing, so she gets a completed knitted object:
Yes, another pair of the infamous French Press Slippers, this pair cast on to do along with my class a couple of weeks ago, finished and felted down to what I hope very much is Mrs. Z’s size.
Look for these in the mail soon. Thanks for all the help, guys! I like this bit where you do the creative work for me. I may have to do this again with the next go round. Now that I’ve got a broader pallate I’m already thinking of new colors for the fall, when the black walnuts fall and the pokeberries sag on their bright fuscia stems.
All my yarn is skeined and labeled, at work, waiting for the final tagging, then I get to totally forget about it until May 1st. Come early and buy it all! I hope you like it!
