Giveaway winner, finally!


As I mentioned before, because of illness I had some very bad days before holidays.
I'm very sad that I wasn't able to collect all your contacts you sent for giveaway, but I just didn't feel well and I was surprised by the big amount of subscribers.

I got 137 people to participate. Wow!
Random.org picked a number 81 (how can I copy the photo here, anyone knows? first time I used it...) and the winner is Melanie R. from Canada.
I'll contact you this evening and ask for your address! 

Because of the late post I would like to double the bid: winner will get a pair of fingerless gloves with her neck warmer and of course, the color of neck warmer is up to her too. I'm ready to to everything personal!

I have some fun projects going on, I'll write about it in my first newsletter and I promise a lot of news ;)

 Hi all!

There's still the winner of giveaway and I'm sorry for that.
I had some busy working days in Italy, with limited possibility to use Internet. Now I'm back, but I'm sick and it's hard for me to keep my eyes open and get off the bed.
I'll complete the list of participants as soon as possible, winner will be announced and parcel sent before Christmas!

Long creamy winter socks

I wanted to write more about the long socks I made last week, but happened that a day after I finished the pair, they were already sold. Probably a Christmas gift to someones wife or girlfriend :)
The plan was to make better photos before blogging, but now they're already on their way to US. 

I'm not a fan os sock-knitting, especially long socks. But I had a perfect wool for making them and I wanted to prove myself that I'm patient enough for completing both socks.

I have about about six or seven lonely knitted socks (and four mittens) in my craft basket, because somehow I lost motivation to make the second one. It was more fun to start new projects rather than doing the same thing twice.

The pattern is my own, a mix of previous designs. I probably make another pair (purple!), but a little different: less lacy, more cables.
Yarn: 100% wool, about 100 grams
Needles: 3,5mm bamboo
Length: 43cm

Next week I'll be in South-Italy, Bari. Already found an address of local yarn shop, would like to take my knitting needles with me (hours long waiting in airports), but it's mission impossible. The airport security always take them away as very dangerous whepon :) So I won't even bother this time...
