Contest, Contest!

I was visiting Nicole's blog, "Knerq", and read of a contest going on at "Skeins Her Way". Three winners will be receiving the pattern for Ali's "Fitted Tank" with the first prize winner also receiving 4 hanks of "Blue Sky Dyed Cotton" in their choice of colours. To enter you have to have a blog. It that sounds interesting to you, check it out. And don't forget to tell them that Marlene/Wovenflame sent you. Here, grab my blog address and take it along with you. ;-) www.wovenflame.blogspot.com

Okay, okay. I might as well be upfront about it. I'll get an extra entry if you say I referred you.

Now for the "work" part of the contest. Ali wants contestants to list their summer knitting goals. As most of you already know, knitting isn't my only fibre related interest and I've recently started exploring weaving on small looms in addition to my usual spinning and knitting. Summer is also my prime time for doing fibre preparation like fleece washing and wool combing. So as you look over my rather short list of summer knitting goals, keep in mind that I will be up to my elbows in other fibery goodness as well.

Dale of Norway US Olympic '02 Ski Sweater. This one has been in "time out" ever since I discovered that it contains rows with 3 colours. It has discouraged me, but I will not be defeated!

Cabled Hoodie, Sirdar 8427 - or possibly and adaptation so I can use a worsted weight handspun.

Socks - these are ongoing projects I keep in the car. No intended finish date.

Loden Mist, that fantastically beautiful lace jacket on page 47 of the Spring 2007 issue of "Knitter's".

Order Level II of the Master Knitters Program.

I might not finish any of these this summer, but these are the knitting projects foremost on my mind.

Thanks for the referral! The socks should be no problem but knitting a sweater in summer... well, I wish you the best of luck! :)
