Remember the Fashionably Late in 2008 Clapotis KAL? There was a contest for anyone who made one of SK's variations. Well guess what? I WON!!! I'm so excited. I never win anything and this time I won Shui Kuen Kozinski's gorgeous coin lace clapotis. I love it. The color is deeper and richer than this photo but I wanted to share it with you. Isn't it great? SK is the fabulous knitter who has so many of her gorgeous patterns available on elann. I feel very lucky.
This also reminded me that I have been completely remiss in announcing the winner of my Daffodil Daze contest. And the winner is . . . . drum roll please . . . . MARIE! Congratulations Marie, please e-mail me your address and I will send you this beatiful skein of super soft alpaca yarn that reminds me of - what else - Daffodils!
I also want to share with you this square I knit for a baby blanket that Kristen is making. I made this one in horseshoe lace for good luck. The color is actually the more like the little blob of blue in the bottom corner. I have no idea why the rest of the picture turned out in this washed out grey.
Finally for SP 12 I have yet to answer any of their questions and they are already on the third week. So here goes: The question this week is "What do you consider the perfect amount of Stash?" That's tough to answer as I purchase yarn faster than I can knit it so the stash grows and grows. So there is no perfect amount - just more yarn to enjoy! Jennifer once had some british knitting terms on her blog and I loved SABLE. That stands for "Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy." I think that's the perfect amount. And just when I was feeling that my stash has really gotten out of hand (unless I plan to live to 200) you have to check THIS out. You'll feel much, much better!
ADDENDUM: Please join me in Summer of the UFO - sign ups are now open. Tell your friends!
