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!

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.
