Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

Blogiversary Contest!!!

About a year and a half ago, I decided I wanted to knit. It went badly, but I loved it, and decided to keep going. Last November, while scouring the web for free patterns, I discovered the wonderful online knitting community of blogs and forums. Everyone is so enthusiastic, and I wanted in on the fun. Last November I started my blog. It was around the same time I joined ravelry, and around the time when knitting took over my life.

In thanks to the love and support from all my readers and knitters everywhere, I'm hosting a contest for the month of November 2008. For every comment in November, I will put your name in a draw for a prize.

The Rules:
Comment on any posts in November (as many as you want).
Link back to my contest on your blog for an extra entry.

THE PRIZE!


Mirasol Yarn Hacho

I will probably add more to the package than just yarn, but the yarn itself is lovely to work with. Let the contest begin!

    Your Christmas knitting is inspiring, the picot edged gloves for fmil are terrific, I am sure she will love them. The pattern is now in my ravelry faves.

    Mmmm, Marisol Hacho; I love that stuff. Some followed me home from Coastal Yarns in Cannon Beach, OR. Have you knit with some? And what did you make? It's the perfect weight for sport/dk socks, which is as skinny as I'm willing to go!
