Before I come back ... additions added below.

Note some interesting sites. Like this one ... here. And there's a contest in there a few posts before the last one. I'm considering entering it ... if only I have the time.



Speaking of contests or drawings ... here's another one at Knitlog. This is an easy one requiring mostly luck in the end.

If you know of any other contest I should post, just let me know okay. I know it's more competition for me, but I like to spread the wealth so to speak. So I'm spreading the word. And if I win ... well all the sweeter, huh? [For me not for you, tehe. I mean if I should be the winner.]

And go visit a new friend, Kena who has recently started her blog. She's in the process of opening a weaving, spinning, felting shop in Michigan. BTW, she has babies ... and not just the two legged kind. But 4 legged babies!
Go take a look and say "Hi"!

Did I ever show this to you when I purchased it? DPN point protectors. I've been using them for awhile now and they've become my favorite for the traveling sock bag. Nice and light weight! Bought it from one of my favorite Etsy stores. The prices are very reasonable too. So go check 'em out!

Additional contests:
Thanks, Dorothy for this one: patternContest


Thanks for this info, Kim ...
Moth Heaven is having a blogiversary contest.

And Bonnie Marie is having a spring contest:


A letter from Seed Stitch about the Tea Cozy Contest ...

Hi, voters and contestants,

I am sorry that I have to do this but in all fairness to all the contestants the voting will begin today and now run until the 24th of April. Unfortunately, there have been voters that have taken advantage of the system that was set up. Please let your friends and family know they have one vote for their favorite cozy.

So from this day on each person will be given one ballet to vote. The ballet will be put in a container and the votes will be counted up on the 24th.

Sorry, to have to do this to everyone who spent so much time making these lovely tea cozies.

I hope you all had a lovely holiday week!!

Much love to all,

Victoria
************************************
So the results won't be out until the 24th. If you had already voted with an X to the list sheet, please go back and cast another (one only please) vote to put in the vase.

Thanks for taking the time to vote!

Oops it was Dorothy! Sorry, Dorothy ... I'll have to correct that. Thanks for telling me, Shelley ;-)

Thanks Rhonda for dropping by and wishing me a happy blogiversary. We're practically neighbors! I'm in Newburyport. Hope to run into you sometime. Sadly, Seed Stitch is off my beaten path, but I do make it to Yarns in the Farms sometimes.

Hi Rhonda,
I didn't know where else to put this so I did it here LOL...I just read your comment and I am REALLY interested in the short row heel in garter, would you be willing to explain how you did it for us less experienced knitters:) And on a side note, usually the people who INSIST it must be you that is doing something wrong and certainly no other alternative, well, THEY are usually the ones who have to insist THEY are always right LOL.
