Contest!

To the right, you will see the button for K.A.Y.E – the Kootchie Awareness Yarn Extravaganza. I was fortunate to be the winner of the January drawing by the lovely Bezzie. And I received this:

It’s lovely yarn, but I’m not sure what to do with it! I believe I have about 550yds-1/4lb of Midnight Celestial Sock Yarn from Mystical Creation Yarns. It’s lovely, sproingy yarn. But do I knit socks, and what pattern? Or do I knit something else, maybe use it in a cardigan somehow? I can’t decide.

So this is what I’m doing. Contest! You send me an email at darlene.mcleod@rogers.com with your suggestions for what I should do with the yarn, and the winner will be the person whose project idea I choose. The prize: a set of stitch markers in a fulled and embroidered stitch marker pocket.

Put on your thinking caps!

    Ha ha, shoot. I’m going to not enter because a.) it would probably be a conflict of interest and b.) I have no clue! Hahaha!

  2. You could always send it to me… :0)Or you could make a lace scarf – lace would be pretty in that yarn.

  3. Legwarmers! I say knit legwarmers.http://knitpicks.com/Cabled%20Legwarmers_PD50542220.htmlSorry for the obnoxiously long link!

  4. Hmmm a Branching out might look very nice in that yarn!

  5. A pair of lace knee socks would be gorgeous. The colour variation in the yarn is subtle enough that it wouldn’t interfere with a lace pattern, but would still be more interesting than just a solid colour. Then wear them with black sandals and a black skirt, or black boots! It’d be supercute.

  6. Ooh, that is indeedy pretty yarn! You could easily do a lace scarf or small shawl out of that. Diamond Fantasy has a small version that’s only 350 yards (tinyurl’ed so it’ll fit):http://tinyurl.com/2vb3r8You could definitely get a Swallowtail out of it. I know it’s been done with one skein of Trekking XXL, which is only 460 yards. Happy pattern hunting!

  7. how about this shawl? http://www.knitlist.com/99gift/shell-and-wave-shawl.htmi just made one in cherry tree hill supersock…400 yards on size 8s got me to a little less than 5 feet after blocking, so 550 yards should be plenty (or you could cut out one of the four horizontal repeats for a scarf-sized version).it’s a lovely color–i’m sure whatever you make from it will be gorgeous!
