I'm trying!

To post a picture! (we'll see if it worked!) (looks like it did! yay!) I want to put a picture of my winning entry on Mandy's blog. http://knitster1.wordpress.com/ She wanted entries of creative things done with yarn or completed projects, etc. Well, the first thing that popped into my mind was to dress up the yarn with eyes, ears, and stuff, like Mr. Potato Head, LOL. Well, I won! :D That was a fun competition.
And since I wrote last, the prize from Bunchkin came (see July 17 entry). The yarn is more beautiful "in person" than it was in the picture on her blog. It's a pretty red German sockyarn. (I don't have my camera with me right now to take its pic....)
I also think I might have been bitten by something. A bug. A knitting related bug. A Warshrag bug!! LOL! I started one yesterday just for an easy knit. I'm enjoying how it is turning out. I'm working with the same Bernat Cottontots yarn as I did the baby bibs. This yarn is really soft. Lilac as the main color, and varigated as the second color. I can envision myself making lotsa these for Christmas gifts, perhaps. :D
Well, I was going to try to post another picture, but I guess that'll hafta wait for another time. It's taking to looooooong! :D

May you have sweet fibery dreams tonite! :D

OMG, I just started laughing when I saw your mr yarn head entry,... too funny :) (maybe more since I just nearly slipped on an errant potato head arm...) :) Congrats!

I love how much personality your yarn has! I too, have been bitten by the washrag bug. I can't seem to stop buying washcloth yarn. I am such a sheep. Baaah.

LOVE the Yarn potato heads! That is hilarious! I have some extra eyes, squiggly arms and feet from my sons' Potato heads. Mind if I try it? Thanks for letting us know about the contest!
