Whoo hoo the First:
I won a contest from Loumms last month and they sent me a delightful package all the way from London! Enclosed were the following treasures…
This gorgeous, smooshy yarn is Lustre Sock Loumms from www.indieknits.etsy.com. It’s 100% superwash Merino and it screams, “Knit me!”
Luckily for the yarn the wonderful ladies at Loumm’s also included a pattern for the delightfully elegant “Mulled Wine” socks. They feature a lovely, lacy cuff and I can’t wait to cast on.
But wait, there’s more! As if yarn and a pattern weren’t enough, they included a set of Knitpicks’ double pointed sock needles AND an adorable handmade project bag. I’m so much loving the bag. It’s green too, my favorite color!
There may have been an emergency chocolate bar, but there may have been an emergency too.
Okay, I confess there was no emergency, just a moment of weakness. It was yummy!
Thank you Louisa and Emma. The prize was/is amazing and I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Whoo hoo the second:
My personal knitting assistants excel at keeping me focused on a project, especially during the finishing process. Every time I become distracted by the telephone ringing, nature breaks, etc. Bonny and A3 remind me to hurry back to the unattended WIP.

What would I do without them?
