Summer Knitting Goals  

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

For Ali, here are my summer knitting goals.

10. Start my Log Cabin in Tahki Cotton Classic.
9. Finish my secret summer cabled sweater that is currently on my needles. (more about this one later, but trust me it is really cool)

8. Finish my Roman Strip Boatneck.
7. Finish another Patagonia Cotton Jawbreaker in a light lavender. I haven't started this one.

6. Finish my Lacy Summer Tee in Tahki Cotton Classic in a light blue silver color. I have the bottom lace band and the back completed.
5. Make this great yarn into socks. 4. Knit up some more socks.
3. Get my yarn stash and projects under control.

2. Knit a few baby sweaters and hats to donate to Nachaele's Stitches for Britches.

1. Get yarn and knit the fabulous fitted tank at http://www.blueskyalpacas.com/pattern_detail.php?patterns_ID=61

Here is the deal everybody Ali is having a contest.
- all you have to do is:
1.) Leave a comment on Her BLOG letting Ali know what color you want and mention who's blog you heard about the contest on. I heard from MARLY aka YARN THING!!
2.) Then head to your blog and post a list of your summer knitting goals (there may be an end-of-summer contest of some sort to celebrate summer knitting accomplishments...) and mention this contest (with a link to this post- http://www.skeinsherway.com/2007/05/pre-summer-contest.html)
3.) Lastly e-mail Ali with the link to your post! (ali AT skeins her way DOT com) Be sure to mention in your post for anyone who follows your link to let her know what blog they jumped from as every 'referral' will earn you another entry! Contest will run through the end of the month (May) and her talented children will draw three winning names (or secret blogging identities) out of a container of some sort on June 1st.What can we win? First place winner will receive 1 copy of the tank pattern along with 4 hanks of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton in their choice of colors second & third place winners will each receive a copy of the pattern and whatever other goodies happen to jump into the package just before sealing and sending!

    Hey, have you checked out Ravelry?
    www.ravelry.com
    It is a way for us knitters and crocheters to catalog our stash, needles, projects, etc. on line.

    It is still in Beta right now and there is a waiting list of like 5000 people. But you should check it out!

    Love the list! So glad you heard about it in time to enter the contest!

    Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

    BTW: if you don't want any of that STR...I will totally take it off your hands...you know...as a friend :-)
