Passion--and a CONTEST!!!
We all need a little passion in our lives, no? Especially when it's February and dreary and no hope of anything like warm weather here for 3 months, and then it's just a tease.
So this will be the basis for my next project. It will be socks, but I don't know what pattern yet. I might try Monkey all in knit, no purls, but it just can't be more knit3purl1 ribbing all down the freaking leg.
Any suggestions? I've never knit a cable and don't want to start now; I need something relatively mindless, since I am relatively mindless by this time.
Description from etsy:
"Passion. Have you lost that loving feeling? Have you got too much of that loving feeling? Need something more to get you through the day? Try adding a little Passion to your life….or your stash. Passion is 100% superwash, fingering weight, merino wool. Dancing from red, to black, to purple, to deep magenta, this colorway captures all those roller coaster feelings. Wrap this 95 grams (+/- 440 yards) of pure passion around your tootsies today. "
Whoever comes up with the best pattern/suggestion for this yarn will win 2 skeins of Claudia's Hand Painted Yarn, my choice. Also, the best suggestion for chasing away the Will Spring EVER Come? blues will get a prize, who knows what yet, but it'll be something.
UPDATE: I guess I should put a deadline on this. How about Saturday, March 1, any comment marked "Saturday, March 1" is fine; no need to worry about time zones.
Hey, that means that February will be over. Over! On to March!
And if you want extra chances to win, link to my blog from yours and tell me you did so. And if someone finds this from your blog, tell them to tell me where they found this, yadda yadda yadda the usual contest rules. And you can enter as many times as you like. I need help here, people!
