Before I tell you about my suprise ... Did I tell you that Lily Chin will be at the Seed Stitch Fine Yarn Store in Salem? Originally she was going to be here the weekend of Mother's Day, but they didn't want to interfere with Mom's Day, so dates were changed. Here they are and of course I've signed up for a class. I'm taking the Reverse Cable class. How about joining me if you live in the area? I hope to also see you there for the book signing on Friday!

How about a Contest?
"Name My Teacozy" contest!
I enter my tea cozy in Seed Stitch's contest on March 31st. Voting will be by the customers that go into the store for the first 2 weeks of April. Their votes determine the winner. Cross your fingers for me okay? Well maybe I should show you my tea cozy first, huh?
I found out last night we can "name" our tea cozy too. So I need some help in that area. Since I got mine done this week and I've been promising to show it to you ... here's a slide show. Once you view the slide show, come on back and help me with a name. The one that I pick [with the help of my DH and DD], will get to pick from the prizes pictured below.Presenting the Tea Cozy by Stitchingnut ...
Leave a name for my tea cozy in the "Comments". We will pick the winner March 30th so you have until March 29th, Noon to leave a "teacozy name". I figure we'll need at least 24 hours to decide which name we like the best, LOL. I'd love to get a variety to choose from ...
So be clever, witty, or serious!
The prizes will be:
1. the felted heart pin not the wood sheep is one of the prizes to pick from or
2. the 3 in the second picture or
3. the book by Vicki Howell, New Knits on the Block.
And you know what? Just to sweeten the deal .... If I should win the design contest at Seed Stitch ... I'll put everyone's name in a hat that contributed to the "Name My Teacozy" contest and draw another winner in Celebration.
I might even draw TWO names!
p.s. I just found out that I was put in Yarnival on March 15th. Check here to read about the other entries as well.
