hoeing the rows

Thanks to everybody who entered our contest at Glastonbury Glassworks! We used the random number generator to choose the winner and have emailed Dee to ask her to browse the site and let us know what she'd like. It was a lot of fun to read the entries and the messages that came with them this week. We'll definitely be doing more giveaways in the future and will list them both on Glastonbury Glassworks and this blog, so please visit often or subscribe via your favorite blog reader. Tell your friends -- the more the merrier!

I'm still happily hoeing the rows, knitting along on the Garden Patch sweater from Philosopher's Wool. In wearing my first Philosopher's Wool sweater, the Tradition cardigan, I've noticed how much softer the yarn has become with wear and how beautifully the stitches have settled in together. This Garden Patch sweater should transform considerably when I block it so the purl rows will flatten down and I'm looking forward to seeing all those yarn colors become one cohesive knit fabric over time. Already I'm daydreaming about what might be the next fair isle sweater I'll knit... :-)

Since a few people have asked, I wanted to mention that, no, we're not going to make it to NH S&W next weekend. It's Leah's 9th birthday and she requested to spend it in Pittsburgh with one of her favorite people in the world, her Great Grandma. We're aiming for MA S&W, though, and would be psyched to run into you all there!

So gorgeous! I wish I was more proficient at Fair Isle. I'm just agog.
