Anyway, any additional folks who leave comments before 11:59pm Pacific time today will go into the "spreadsheet of yarny goodness" which I will use to pick the winners via a random number generation thingy. Tomorrow. I'll be heading for bed as soon as I finish this post.
In the mean time, Look Knitting!
I made yet another pair of Maine Morning Mitts.
This time they were for a male friend so I up-sized them a bit simply by adding a repeat of the ribbing pattern (so 36 stitches instead of 33) and knit a bit longer before and after adding the thumb. I also picked up extra stitches for the thumb so that I had 15 total and did the thumb in k4p1 rib. These too are Plymouth Boku color 6 this time.
I started a sock with the first ever yarn I bought from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe. I finally just picked a pattern I saw flip by on my 365 Knitting Stitches a Year calendar and went for it instead of trying to find the perfect pattern.
The Sockswatch Sighting Sundays sock swatches for last Sunday still aren't ready so I think it'll have to skip a week. Plus I don't like either of them yet (I'm just over half way through the repeat) so they aren't tempting.
Unlike my Rockin' Sock Club January socks. Which are tempting. Stop reading right now if you don't want to be spoiled. (I think everyone has their packages by now though.)

I've gotten through the first repeat of the lace pattern. I have decided I like the yarn better in the ball than I do in the sock and much better than I did in the skein in terms of "for me -ness" (as opposed to in general). In general I think they are a lovely red-orange color but that's really not my color. So when I finish the socks, which seems like it will be sooner rather than later, I think I will gift them. Still they make great Project Spectrum knitting.
OK, I'm still having trouble with feeling like my lungs aren't working quite right so... th-th-th-that's all for now folks.
