Knitting! It's a sizzler scarf... And a quick giveaway!

 Check out what I'm working on! I got this Morehouse Farm knit kit in the mail recently, and despite my being a sub par knitter, I'm making pretty quick progress and enjoying myself! The pattern is really easy, so I can knit while I watch/listen to TV. Hulu Plus just put season 2 of Downton Abbey up, so I've been knitting and watching and feeling fancy. This little scarf is going to turn out gorgeous, BTW, check out what the finished product should look like here. No guarantees mine is gonna look that awesome, but it there's a chance it might. It's been a long time since I've knit anything serious.
 The kit came with these delicious little raspberry bamboo knitting needles, which do add to my feeling of fanciness. The soft clicking these needles make is quiet, no metallic clickity clickity.
And oh, this merino yarn. Doesn't it look good? That's because it is. Lace-weight, cornflower blue, so pretty. I'll post a pic when my little scarf is all finished. I think I'm going to have to add some fancy beads or sequins to it. Did I mention the word fancy in this post at all? No? Fancy.

And hey! Morehouse Farm also sent me this super cute Critterknits knit kit!

I'll be giving it away to a lucky knitting reader :) Just be a follower and leave a comment on this post to be entered. Be sure there's some way to contact you if you win. I'll be picking a random winner on Wednesday July 18th 2012, sometime during the day. Here's more info on this Little Elephant Purse. This prize ships to US addresses only, though, sorry. I'll do an international one soon :) Good luck, friends!

Entries CLOSED! Congratulations to the winner, Miss Rose!

And thank you to Morehouse Farm!

What a great knit set (those needles are too fun for words!), and what a darling little purse! My niece LOVES elephants, and if I were to win this kit, there's no question but that the completed purse would go to her. Good luck with your scarf, and thanks for hosting the giveaway!
