Fall with Sweet Georgia WinnerBy
Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter the contest on my blog last week, and please accept my apologies for the lateness of this post, as I get closer to wedding bells, life gets crazier! Kathryn, you’re the winner! You will receive your pattern via Ravelry :)
“The Aine is lovely, and totally your colour! I love that you are planning for Honeymoon knitting ;) but hopefully you won’t have a lot of spare time. I love Nexus myself. I have so many single skeins that I would like to see in that design. I am also looking for something compact to take on a trip this weekend!”
And so Aine it is… sort of! Last Sunday I had to take a red-eye flight to Vancouver, and then Calgary for work. It was a crazy 36 hours, even with views like this:
As an extra perk, I got to meet the Yarn Harlot! I recognized her on my flight back to Toronto and she was quite good-natured about my request that she hold up Blue Brick yarn for a photo :) She was also immensely cool to talk to, and good company for that period of the inevitable boarding delay.
So why Aine… sort of? I took it on the Vancouver flight, figured I’d get started…
With the result that I’m about halfway done since these photos were taken. SO, the runner-up, the mitts, will come with me to the honeymoon as well :) Win!
Gotta love airport time for making progress on a knitting project! Thanks so much for the pattern. I will use my Kim’s Barn!
I can’t believe you ran into the Yarn Harlot!!!! No way. So incredibly jealous. Too cool for school.
You are so easy to talk with. I’m not surprised at all that she chatted with you and let you take her pic.
Thanks so much. Nothing like airport time to make good progress on a project!
