Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I have a couple of winners from my blogerversary contest - The first winner to receive the Mama Blue Trifle Troika Sport is...Nell from Chicken Knits! And the Plucky Knitter goes to Suzanne of 4 the Loves of. Congrats girls! Bear with me a second - I found it interesting that Nell, who lives in CA, won the yarn that I got from Mama Blue in CA and Suzanne, from MI won the yarn I got from The Plucky Knitter in MI - but wait, Nell also hails from MI - anyways, a bit a coincidence that I found. And have you seen Nell's new spinning wheel? Her mother was a spinner...so new to her with such a special connection - can't wait to see what Chicken Spins!

I also want to share the itty bitty bit of progress I have made on my February Ladies Sweater...good thing I am coasting in a yellow jersey for the TDF KAL.

My husband was traveling for work all week and I thought I would have a plethura of knitting time - well, what was I thinking? I guess having an extra set of eyes is more helpful than I thought. I spent later evenings feeling more pressure to keep on top of the housework and pack lunches rather than knit - I ran a tight ship, it went smooth - but my knitting was lonely...and so was I:)

Doing it on you own is easier in some respects and harder in others.

Your sweater is such a pretty color.
