An update and some yarn for one of you :)

Here is a little blog update :)

First, I have something to give away. I've always thought that if I reach 50 followers on my blog, I would give a skein of yarn to one of you.  Then, I've reached 50 and above but since I almost never update my blog now or write really short posts, it is dropping, hi hi  :)  So, before it goes under 50, I thought I would hurry up and go ahead :)

I'd like to give away the extra skein of yarn that I haven't used to knit the Baby Chalice Blanket (see details on this project page). It is nice to knit with, soft and warm!  Would you like to try it?  If so, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post before March 4th, 2016 at 23:59 EST!  I will draw the winner with a random number generator and post the winner here.  In the comment, you could tell me what you would like to knit with it. 

Also, I wanted to show you my progress on my sister's socks!  It is fun to knit.  I really like Biscotte & Cie self-stripping yarns.  The pattern is the Hedgerow Socks.  This is the second pair that I knit.  I was not sure if the pattern would go well with stripes but I think it actually do!

It is a pleasure to knit them.  The proof is that they are knitting up pretty quickly. I hope you are also enjoying what you currently have on your needles!

A very good week to all of you!

FO: Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat

Here is another little something I've knitted with leftover yarn :)  I love this colorway!

You can see my project page on Ravelry for more details.
I will also be donating it to the 25 000 Tuques that I talked about in my previous post.

It's the second time I make this pattern because I think it is incredibly cute with the little i-cord at the top!  No mods, just fun!

I wish you all a wonderful week and may winter end soon :)
