The Contest!

THE CONTEST

During 2006 I have done a LOT of knitting. Some things I have finished that was started in 2005...but MOST were started and finished in 2006.

NOW my dear readers..the competition is

HOW many things did I cast on then went on to finish during 2006 ? The number is between 20 and 100.....So start guessing...

1 guess per person. Let everyone you know that knits know so they can join in too! If I reach 50 guesses or more I will have TWO prizes to give out..Otherwise there is only 1...

Competition ends Jan 10th

Start guessing!!!!

Well...My plans for having my socks and the designed baby jumper have been thrown out the window by the sudden decission to KNIT 4 birthday presents due before Feb 10th!!! YOINKS!!

I am going to knit my parents a pair of socks each for their late Jan early Feb birthdays

I am knitting jumpers for two little boys (a size 1 and a size 5) for brothers whos birthdays are early Feb...

Sooooooooo all other knitting is put aside until I get those done...Will start on a green size 1 jumper today...Will see how I go from there..The size 1 jumper is the most important..My parents already have socks from me...older brother has had a few jumpers from me..Baby Boy (Christopher) has only had 2 pair of baby socks..a knitted hedgehog and a beanie from me...SO this will be his FIRST jumper from Auntie Katt!!

I am currently dyeing up more sock wool. If you are interested in buying a select colourway from me let me know before Wednesday (Friday at the latest) and I will dye it up for you. I have a few orders already that I am taking care of now).

    What about 54? Anything over 10 would be a lot for me. I love to knit but I also cross stitch, quilt plus for some reason waste a lot of time. But I guess that is what retirement is all about. I am interested in purchasing a skein of your sock yarn. How do I go about doing that?

    Ruth... http://kattswoollywonders.blogspot.com/ is where she sells her socky stuff.

    No doubt she's already told you but I'm bored so I'm going to shamelessly plug her socksite.

    Do I have to guess? 79.

    I've just come back from my holiday and trying to catch up with all my emails etc and you are my first on the list that I am posting to from the snb-melbourne group. The number I am guessing is 79 because my daughter was born that year. I love the seashell colour for sock yarn and will send you a seperate email for that. Happy New Year!
