Blog Launch, 100 Facebook Likes, and a Giveaway!

Blog Launch

That’s right! I’m officially launching my blog!

My mission:  To expand my own knitting knowledge and share with you what I’ve learned along the way.

In honor of this new start I’ve decided to give one lucky winner a pair of Katelyn mitts, hand-knit by yours truly.


Katelyn Mitts, Ladies’ S/M
Hand-knit with 100% Peruvian Highland wool

This is the short version with 3 leaves.  They’re very cute and perfect for springtime! The coloring is off a bit in my photo…I just couldn’t get the lighting right. It probably didn’t help that I was trying to photograph dark green mitts on a dark brown ottoman. 🙂  I think the actual color is a lovely shade of deep moss green. Very woodsy.

100 Facebook Likes

This past week my Facebook page reached 100 likes! It’s so fun to see the numbers rising again thanks to Blogelina‘s blog networking! By the way, I’ve learned a lot in her Blogging Basics Class this month! I’m working on my weekly blogging goals as I try and figure out exactly what I’m doing now that I have a self-hosted WordPress blog.

In honor of all my Facebook “fans,” I’ve decided to give another lucky winner a pair of my Early Morning Mitts, also hand-knit by yours truly.


Early Morning Mitts, Ladies’ S/M
Hand-knit with 100% Peruvian Highland wool

This is a long version of my soon-to-be-published-on-Ravelry Early Morning Mitts pattern. They come up just past mid-forearm on me. This makes them arm warmers too! 🙂 The marine blue color has a gray undertone to it that doesn’t show in my photo. Reminds me of the Pacific Coast along Washington and Oregon.

But that’s not all folks!

I really like odd numbers.  So even though two is my husband’s favorite number, I can’t just stop at two prizes.

Therefore, my Grand Prize winner will receive this lovely hand-knit Moss Stitch Cowl. (Do I need to say I made it myself? I didn’t think so.)


Moss Stitch Cowl or Infinity Scarf, one size
Hand-knit with 100% “Superwash” Merino Wool

This cowl or infinity scarf is a beautiful example of moss stitch.  I love the doeskin heather colorway…you might call it a light taupe. Wear it like a scarf tucked under your jacket, pin it to the side with a pretty brooch, or wrap around your neck for the cowl-like look.
