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!
