While many sports fans will be cheering on their favorite teams during March Madness, I will be participating in my own March Madness knitting challenge. The UFO group on Ravelry is hosting March UFO Madness and I’ve singled out, once again, my Vickie Cardigan. My personal challenge is ten rows a day which should get me pretty close to finishing all the parts of this cardigan. The challenge runs from March 1 – March 15th and I meant to mention it earlier this week to you. It’s not too late to focus on one of your UFO’s for the next couple weeks so follow the link if you are interested.
I’m also working on something GREEN for St. Patrick’s Day.
Not only did I pick green yarn, I picked a pattern filled with cable-goodness because you know what those Irish knitters are known for, right? Cables. Lots of twisty enchanting cables! The sock pattern is Eunice (Sock Innovations) and is another of Cookie A.’s brilliant and challenging patterns. Cookie certainly thinks out of the box!
Speaking of boxes, I am waiting for a very special box coming straight from Scotland. It will be stamped ‘Royal Mail’ and will contain the Hebridean yarn to make Rosemarkie. =audible squeal of delight and anticipation=
