The winner is ...

Considering that I know most of the people who entered the contest I definitely had to use an outside source to prevent any special treatment. Using the very popular Random.org number generator I am pleased to be able to give Jocelyn the Mary Maxim sweater kit!! Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their joy of knitting with me.

"Hi Daddy!! (can he hear me that far away?) I'm working on my map of Prescod City for school. I played a lot on Sunday bu
t Mommy is sure that I will still get it done."

I just couldn't help myself - I had to start the Jaywalker socks ... just to see what the pattern would look like & how they would fit. So - I love how the colours look ( a Regia colour that I have re-named "Red at Morning"), the fit is good. I am knitting at 10.5sts/inch in the chevron pattern so it's not as baggy (I like snug socks). On the 2nd sock I will decrease the number of ribbed sts and then increase for the pattern.

Here are the laid-out squares for the Noro Afghan. It took longer than you might imagine to get them to look properly random!! I will not change them any more. I will not change them any more. I will not change them any more. Now for the sewing.

Those socks are goooood lookin'! I might have to make me a pair of those. There are so many socks I want to make that I seem stalled and unable to start any. My feet aren't going to stay warm that way, are they?

Congratulations Jocelyn!

Love the Angus Weather Forecast button you added. Now I can check the weather before I hit the highway up there this weekend.

Wannietta, your jaywalkers have got me hooked now. I have to start a pair today.
