My local yarn shop, One City Market in Rogersville, held a Knitting Olympics this year and invited folks to participate. Well, you know me, always up for a competition! I entered the "Cozy Up to the Fire" event with my knitted wine glass charms. I won Silver! The first picture shows the charms. I made 2 of each motif. Next you will see my award - 2010 Fiber Calendar, thermal cup, handmade soap, and a booklet with post-its and memo pad.

And now for an update on the Madness. I started my Simple Side-to-Side Socks last Wednesday, the day it started. Finished them yesterday, the 16th. The problem with these socks is that we were required to knit EXACTLY to the specifications of the pattern. That made the socks almost impossible for some of us to get on. Note, I said some of US. There is no way those socks will go over my arch so they might have to be gifts for someone...anyone with small feel out there? Maybe a size 7.5 or 8? Let me know....cause I've got a pair of socks for you!

I've qualified for Round 2. Round 1 will close on Tuesday the 23rd...a few days to move everyone who qualified into one of 4 groups, and then Round 2 will begin. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us next! I've pulled all the yarns I want to use for the hoping that the ones I've chosen will work for the patterns the moderators have chosen. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Must heigh myself to work....thanks for stopping by.
