Love my Skinnys

Love the Skinny Duets I am knitting up. Toe up, plain as usual but that's the way I wanted these. This is Fuschia Safari colorway. And let me just tell ya, they are going to look too cool with my brand new mary jane orange Crocs that have arrived. College football season is just around the corner and we will kick off the season with the Bowden Bowl.

See yourself on a calendar: I got an email the other day from Susan Ripley who is gathering knitting and crocheting patterns for the 2009 Pattern A Day Calender from Accord Publishing. Here's the scoop:

Here's a chance to get your design published. Patterns are accepted from individuals, shops, charities and yarn companies. There are no restrictions and the patterns can also be something that is currently being distributed for free.

You can visit their website , Knitting Pattern a Day and learn more about the submission requirements. Imagine how excited you would be to flip the calendar in 2009 to ... say ... feb. 14 or mar. 9 or even oct. 21 and see your pattern and name there. Try it!

Sale News: In other Yarn Grove news, we have J. Knits Lace-A-Licious Extra superfine Alpaca (1200 yards) on sale for 19.50 a skein. Great price for some great lace yarn. Also J. Knits DK weight yarn is on sale for $9.00. 2 skeins should knit up a nice pair of adult socks. Fast and easy... Give it a whirl...
