Only Two More Days of the Contest!

Get your sweater pattern suggestion in before Wednesday at 8 p.m. PST, so that I can put your name in the hopper for a chance at a FABULOUS PRIZE! If I draw your name, you will win some nice things, some from my stash and others just because. And if I choose your pattern, you will also be a winner. Scroll down a few entries to find the info about the contest and to add your comment (with a working email addy please, or contact me offline!) and get in the running.

I am #187 on Ravelry right now and have started to get really excited. It's going to be great.

Here's what I worked on while I was traveling this week in Boston and New Haven, CT helping the older DDs get settled at school. It's stripes of corn fiber yarn and bamboozle in a variegated yarn. With a three knit stitch edge, it will probably lie flat when blocked.

DD2 seems like she's going to be pretty darned happy at Tufts, and DD1 is now living in her own little apartment just off campus at Yale. At both schools the weather was providing that perfect end of summer, hint of fall weather, and the deep blue skies as backdrop for gorgeous architecture made me feel as if I were under a spell. I wanted to stay in both places and sign up for classes. That would be problematic for many reasons, not the least of which is a daughter who doesn't want her mom in that close proximity. 8^)

Well, having missed three class days at the beginning of a school year, I need to make this short so I can get back into the fray.

Happy knitting!

Oh, that takes me back! My dad did a postdoc at Yale, so we moved from Australia to New Haven when I was 4, and I did many of my primary school years there. LOVE the place. Hope your DDs enjoy their new homes and studies, and you don't worry about them too much :)
