My Newest Addiction!

This project has certainly captured my attention! This is just the beginning of my Hemlock Ring Throw. I read about it on Ravelry and found the pattern on The Rainey Sisters blog page. They offer the corrected pattern and have done all the hard work of finding the mistakes and changes to make it simpler. I am using Cascade 220 and a size 8 needle. What fun this project is and I have already ordered some cream colored wool and silk for my next one. The next one is a heavier yarn and will be on a 10-10 1/2 needle. I haven't had this much fun with a project in awhile.

Ever Heard of Hat Attack?

I've read about sock wars on the internet, but my LYS Renaissance Yarns is promoting Hat Attack. It sounds like fun, so I joined! This is all new to me but evidently everyone starts knitting a hat at the same time and you have a target that you mail it to. Once they get it, they are out of the game and they send you their unfinished hat and the targets name. The last one alive wins $500 worth of yarn from the sponser! I guess I will be knitting my little fingers off to try and stay alive!
I'll keep you posted on this new venture for me.
