Enable Me Please!!

Monday I mentioned that fellow bloggers have been oh-so-kind and generous lately. I thought I’d share just what their favor has brought me…

First up, Kat at Knittin’ in the Sun ran a giveaway for her 100th post!! She was generously donating a pattern of your choice under $10 on Ravelry. Kat very kindly gifted me the Daybreak Shawl pattern by Stephen West. I’m planning to make this with some Mini Mochi I received in a swap package back in August paired with some Tibetan Cloud Fingering.

Next, Christina at Feel Good Knitting interviewed Sashka Macievich of SashkaKnits for the Indie Gift-A-Long. Christina and Sashka very kindly donated a pattern to one lucky commenter and it turned out to be me!! I love Sashka’s Auberge Shawl and am definitely looking forward to searching the stash for a lovely to knit up πŸ™‚

Maybe the Holiday Flock Sock in Queen of Hearts red…or the Susquehanna Sparkle Sock in the Trumpet colorway which has a nice strand of shimmer running through the peachy pink..or maybe my most recent purchase of some Dyeabolical Tenacious Sock in the Raja grey color. Any of these would make a gorgeous Auberge shawl…I just have quite a few WIPs to finish and needles to clear up before I can start something new.

Last bit of generous bloggery, Sarah from A Little KnitΒ just posted about some of her favorite blogs to read here and I made the cut!! Sarah says, “Jenna’s blog is full of tasty looking yarns and the intricate projects that she is working on.” So kind πŸ™‚ She also highlights Pia of Noget Uldent, Tahnee of Woollen Wilderness, and Nadia from Abso-knitting-lutely.

If you haven’t had the chance to check out Sarah over at her blog, A Little Knit, I highly recommend it. She is a self-taught knitter and crocheter who is so relatable. I love reading about her fearless adventures into pattern modification on the fly and the challenges she works through on her super cool patchwork blanket. She’s definitely someone I enjoy hearing from and find her work super cool and inspiring πŸ™‚

Since it is a WIP Wednesday, I thought I’d give you a quick update on the thing I enjoy working on the most…I’m about 2/3 of the way through the garter portion of the shawl and I’m absolutely loving it! Behold, The Settler Shawl!!

Pair these sweet giveaways with all the sales going on around the internet for the holidays and you’ve got yourself a habit…the habit of spending too much, casting on too much, and reading blogs too much.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

    I love the colors in that shawl and congrats on your good luck! There is always a danger of buying too much yarn but I have more than enough in my stash to keep me busy for years, at this point I don’t even want to win any free yarn. lol

    1. Too true! Every time I venture to buy a little yarn, I think about the phrase “yarn/stash beyond life expectancy” that I’ve heard several Knitters refer to…I’m hoping to knit through it all, one day!

  2. You’re definitely on a winning streak, if I were you I’d quickly buy a lottery ticket πŸ˜‰
    Love all the projects you have planned. The enabling part is something I definitely love about reading blogs, although the risk of casting on too much is a very real.

  3. ah, enabling is so easy with fellow knitters πŸ™‚ my friend asked if I’d like to go to the yarn store with her…..um, YES. I know I’ll be buying something!

  4. I love seeing someone so full of ideas and projects they literally spill off the page!! I really don’t think you need any enabling….you are doing just fine on your own! (with a little help from all those winner you scored!!! Congrats!)

  5. What great wins, and a great excuse for some new cast ons! Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog, really means a lot πŸ™‚ Also, another great choice of yarn for your shawl.
