Lucky me!


One of the things I like about Ravelry and blogging is connecting with other knitters and fiber craftspeople. I count the ladies over at Wandering Cat Yarns as online friends. As well as hand-dying gorgeous yarns, they're both talented designers. At times, they've also custom dyed colourways for me when I was searching for a something just so.

I've joined the Wandering Cat Yarns Group on Ravelry and over the last few months I took part in a KAL - knitting Mr. Dress-Up socks in Wandering Cat Yarn. And I was lucky enough to win the grand prize pack, pictured at the right. A skein of 80% merino/20% nylon sock yarn in this fabulous colourway called "Frog Prince", a reversible yarn bag and four little metal charms on the Frog Prince theme. So cute!

You can get in on the action too! Wandering Cat Yarns is hosting another KAL from April 6th to June 8th. Participants are knitting Game of Thrones inspired patterns using Wandering Cat Yarn and/or a Wandering Cat pattern. Quick, go check out the gorgeous yarn prizes on offer there!

Yarn as gorgeous as this is making me feel like casting on, but I think I'm going to save it for the final pattern in my Socktopus KAL. The sock pattern Farmer McGregor is one of my favourites in the book, and I think this yarn will be just perfect! Look at that lovely twist; should make for awesome stitch definition.

Congrats on the win. The yarn and the bag are so cute.

I think that will be the PERFECT yarn for Mr. Magregor.

I'm so glad you liked the prize. I'm on vacation in a couple of weeks and the plan is to get my sewing stuff set up in it's permanent home (my studio) so I can start production and start making some for the shop.

OMGosh, that colorway reminded me of frogs and a frog pond and then I noticed the project bag! Coolio! Congrats.

How lovely and how wonderful to be the winner. Almost makes me want to knit socks, almost. At least all that gorgeous yarn can also make shawl.
