Last night I finished the sock, and I’m not totally sure that I’m in love with my solution – but we shall see.  I’d post a picture but I might yet rip it back – For now I’m trying to start the second one of the pair, and for the life of me can’t remember what cast-on I used, or what changes I made to the pattern.  I have no idea why I didn’t write it down. It’s like I’m new or something.

I’m going to distract you with a big round of Karmic Balancing gifts.

First, two presents from long time friend of the show, Susan of Spinning Bunny Fame.  She’s got a wonderful gift of Hand dyed Blue Lagoon blue face Leicester / silk (4oz), hand dyed Caribe cultivated silk (2oz) plus her Chatty Shawl pattern.

Good thing that Leigh W is a spinner, I bet she’ll make good use of it.

That’s not enough love from Susan, so she’s also got two skeins of her pretty hand dyed Woody, and her Art Deco sock pattern for Kat M.

It’s some crazy fun yarn, courtesy of Heidi, Knit Collage “Gypsy Garden” in Bubblegum.  It’s wildly nifty to knit, and I hope that Breeanna S can think of something awesome to make with it. (There’s suggestions on that page.)

Here’s a big one, Elizabeth H, Dotty W, Mary L, Pilaar Y, KJ. EtoshaMa, Donna, Shelia P, Marla G and Stephanie NB are all getting a present from Tanya Luescher!

She has some beautiful shawl patterns, and each of those ten lucky knitters will get two for free! Shazam!

Heads up on this one, because the good times just don’t stop rolling.  Lisa, AKA KnitWench, is offering up a really wonderfully generous set of gifts.  Not one, not two, but SIX, count’em, SIX projects bags, the winners choice from any bag in her rather delicious Etsy Shop.

I’ve just put three photos here, but I could go on all day, they’re adorable.  I hope that Lynn P, Marie, Niki R, Lindsay I, Julia F and Karen H are thrilled.

Another one for the spinners, the remarkable Sarah over at They Told Me Sew (lovely things, just lovely) has a beautiful roving that she’s willing to part with.

It’s 7.8oz of hand dyed Merino called “Liquify” – and she says it’s a joy to spin, and I don’t doubt it for a minute, and I bet that Donna D agrees.

Betsy who’s as generous as the day is long, has two presents that she’d like to move from her stash to the home of some lovely knitters, as generous as she is.  She has three skeins of Classic Elite Inca Alpaca, in her favourite shade of blue for Claudia G.

She’s also got two skeins of alpaca in a pretty black/gray/natural marl from Carrell Farms, and I bet that Lesley D will make something beautiful.
