1 Skein Wollmeise = 2 Projects + 1 Contest

Last summer I bought some Wollmeise. I started with one skein, 150g, of Sockenwolle, and made my daughter a pair of socks. The pattern is the coriolis sock from Cat Bordhi's book New Pathways for Sock Knitters, Book One. Given that they were very short socks, I wasn't too surprised there was yarn left over, so I made my daughter a pair of matching fingerless gloves (my generic pattern).

And now there is still 62g of yarn left! I used about 52g on the socks and 36g on the gloves, so I think there is enough for small socks, gloves, or mittens.

Free Wollmeise Contest

Do you want the remaining 62g? My daughter is in 11th grade and just starting to look at colleges. To enter just leave a comment naming your favorite college/university in the Northeast US, and why. It's not very busy around here at wormsoup, so your chances are excellent! Deadline: Midnight Saturday Feb 2. The winner will be the most helpful comment, and if she can't pick one, it will be random.

Thank you, Ebinla Birks!

Emily's Dish Rag Tag continues to be full of fun and surprises. For winning "Most Complex Dish Rag Tag Dish Rag" I was given a set of amethyst stitch markers made by Ebinla Birks. Take a look at these beauties! I'm afraid my photography doesn't do them justice. Thank you!!
