9 skeins of KnitPicks Shine Sport, color Sand
4 skeins of King Cole Luxury Mohair, color Barcellona
1 skein of Euroflax Wet Spun Linen, color Lilac
1 smaller skein of Euroflax Wet Spun Linen, color Violet
These are the yarns I won in the destashing contest on BJ's blog http://killearnan.blogspot.com/ . Sorry, no pictures yet. Now comes the big question of which of the patterns I've been wanting to knit will be the perfect match for each of the yarns? Ah, the fun of agonizing over this! LOL
We have relocated further east in Texas and we just happen to be near some very nice local yarn shops. I will be visiting for some yarn petting & checking out the needles. Reports to follow.

Now, about those blogs to read. I feel like I have friends out there whom I've never met but have visited with & knit with when I read their blogs. I've been lucky lately by reading some blogs & entering the contests. There are two blogs I read regularly that are having contests.
Aunt Kathy's Place is running a comment contest the whole month of February. She is keeping the prizes a mystery but I am positive that she will have a fantastic prize to two to share. Her blog is http://gimpykatk.blogspot.com/ . If you want to tell her you got to her blog through this one, she will give me extra credit.
I just won a sock yarn prize from Patt's Creations Madness so I won't be actually entering her contest. To enter, just leave a comment on her contest blog entry. She is giving a great-looking project bag as the prize. You'll find her blog at http://pattscreationsmadness.blogspot.com/2009/02/happy-february-month-of-love.html .

It just so happens that right now i am itching to start several new projects. UFO's? Get back in the dark & leave me alone, I want to play with something different.
I am making progress on the latest sock but it was a beautiful day in the south Texas sun & I went out to play. We visited the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge where we saw some beautiful and interesting trees, grasses and flowers but no wildlife. bummer
We are not watching the Super Bowl so I think I'll put on some music & knit a while now.
