I Don't Knit, But...

I love fiber of any kind, so several weeks ago I entered a giveaway on Yarn Hungry Piggett's blog and I won!

This is the lovely yarn that she was giving away -- it looked too pretty to pass up, so I entered. Shortly afterward, a nice squishy package arrived at my house (it's even prettier in person than in the photo).

I immediately went to my sewing machine and put together this postcard as a thank you for Yarn Hungry Piggett. It's a bit hard to see in the photo (and in real life), but I couched some of the yarn along the seams underneath a zigzag stitch using gold thread. I was quite
pleased with how it turned out and from what I've read, Yarn Hungry Piggett likes it, too.

This yarn now belongs to a friend of mine and she offered to knit me a pair of socks. Sounds good to me as long as she also knits something for herself -- there is plenty of yarn there to make a number of projects, I would think.

Thanks again, Yarn Hungry Piggett!

If you are a knitter, you must also check out Tropical Screamer's blog. She has offered some free dishcloth patterns and is working on a website. Visit her blog and check out her past knitting projects. I especially like the lace sampler.
P.S. If you haven't seen it already, you must see my friend Susan's selvage bag on her blog!

What beautiful yarn and another lovely card! Susan's bag is just gorgeous.

Yikes, a day late. I was going to offer to knit socks for you too! I love knitting socks and sometimes fingerless gloves, easy peasy stuff while I sit and watch tv.
Wow Anya, that is great.

You're very sweet to mention my humble online homes.

I'm drooling over the work you've been doing. I love that baby quilt.

And I'd still be "squishing" that yarn.

I hope you're having a great day.
