I've been too busy to Blog ... between work, knitting class and The Red Scarf Project. The SnB group at M.I.T. decided to each knit and send scarves out as a group during our Independent Activity Period (IAP) this year. So I had to get that scarf done ... it was weighing me down ... and has to go out with the others this Thursday. I was so ready to finally finish it this morning and here it is now all blocked and ready to go. Along with a scarf I knit last year. I had decided to donate it to the Project also ... just in case I didn't get the red one done.
But I did it!
I'm done, done done ...
Another reason you haven't seen much of me this week is because I'm in another knitting contest. Yup. This time it's for the Seed Stitch Fine Yarn store. They're having a contest for a Tea Cozy design. So I've got my design drawn out on paper and I can picture it perfectly in my head ... my mind's eye can see it perfectly. Now if only I can pull it off! I'll take progress pictures as I go and will reveal all once I have it down at the Seed Stitch on display. The way the voting works this time ... is, votes will be put in by the customers that go into the store. All entries will be on display for everyone to pick their favorites.
Tea Cozy Contest begins March 1st. One month to make a tea cozy of your choice. Knitted or crochet. All cozy's are due, completed, and in the store on the 31st of March. Then they will let the public decide on their favorite. Winner receives tea for two at the Old Ritz in Boston.
(it's now called Taj Boston.) I SO WANT TO WIN this one!
So for now, I'll leave you with a little Mosaic from knitting class ...
