Squees, Cardigans, and a Contest

First, I would like to say that I was absolutely giddy yesterday when Lorna's Laces commented on the new pair of Monkey socks! I love their products so much and it just really made my day to get a comment from them! Anyways, on to the post for today...

I worked some more on the cardigan, divided the sleeves away from the rest of the body and worked 3 out of 6 increase repeats before hitting the bed a little early. I think the yellow dust has moved in again here since it rained and my entire back porch was covered in yellow film afterwards. That and my eye is bugging the crap out of me which happens when the stuff moves in. Now, yellow dust has nothing to do with the cardigan. It was just a ramble that happened, so to make up for it, here's the still blobby cardigan progress picture:I'm also getting the travel sock ready to go for this weekend, so I started winding the two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the Franklin's Panopticon colorway. This is where the contest comes in...

You have until Monday morning to leave a comment on this post. The people who can guess the pattern I am going to make with this yarn will be entered into a drawing for two skeins of my handspun that didn't get used up in the Clapotis. It's an alpaca, angora, romney wool blend with a slight sparkle every now and again. Here's a picture:And for those of you who have no clue what the Lorna's colorway looks like, here is the Panopticon colorway that is inspiring me to knit a certain pattern:Good luck and knit on...

Hint: The pattern is a free pattern online

Spring Forward, because it's what I'd do- that yarn is just screaming to be a pair of Spring Forward socks! :)
