Craft On: We Have a Winner!!!
Basbousa is coming along well, and I hope to have this sweet set ready for beta knitting by Valentine's Day. That is probably a foolish hope, but I am an eternal optimist. I wanted to imply the hearts and romance, but still create a mitten a man would wear. What do you think? Am I succeeding?
This little mitten has been started, re-started, ripped back and corrected about seven times, and it is finally doing what I want, both mathematically and aesthetically. That is a success, at least.
We finished Little Men and are starting in on Jo's Boys. I've made some slow progress in Desert Queen. It is really interesting, and I am praying for enough sleep so I can finish it this next week or two.
Thank you for your entries in the drawing for Serendipity: Luxury Knits! Random.org picked a Laurel as the winner, and I have contacted all the entrants to let them know. If you didn't see a note from me, please tell me.
The Around the World Stitch-Along is just about started, and I am getting really excited. We hope to publish the participating designer thread either Monday or Tuesday! Please join in our Ravelry Group, or follow our Instagram feed to participate in all the fun. The event kicks off on February 19, and we hope to see you there!
