Lucky Year!

I won a guessing contest over at The Tangled Arts a couple of weeks ago (seriously...I won something...and more than once this year! I'm really not usually someone who ever wins! ...but on to my yarn!)

Trish knit a beautiful blanket for her daughter (the kind that I've drooled over for a while..so I tried to make a simple dishcloth in a similar type of pattern, but I messed it up...and frogged it...anyways...back to my new yarn)

The contest was to guess how many ends Trish had to weave in when she finished that blanket...and I won! So, here's what she sent me:
See that...it's Lime & Violet Sasquatch sock yarn and the colourway is "Midnight in the garden of loopy". Hehe, and look...the skein is all loopy :-) It makes me giggle....I love that name.
I suck at taking pictures that actually look like the object I'm taking pictures of...but I think this one maybe shows the colour a bit better.....it's probably actually somewhere between the dark and light pictures... I love it I love it!It's really fueling my recently found love for sock yarn, and staring at it, squishing it, spending far too much time on Ravelry deciding what pattern I should knit out of it. Oh, how I love the yarn.

Thank you Trish! You rock!

Oh, and seriously...she just posted her knits of 2008...man...I aspire....to knit even half...heck..who am I kidding, if I finished a quarter of that knitting I'd think I'd done pretty awesome!
