More prizes

This Offhand Designs Scottie Bag has been added to the amazing prizes for The Food Drive. The first ticket drawn will win the gift basket of yarns and patterns. The bag will be the second ticket drawn. We also have 3 - $50 gift certificates to the store.
Offhand Designs makes some of the most amazing bags!  The fabric and the hand-crafted sewing of each bag harkens back to the elegance of yester-years.  The Scottie bag is perfect to store your on the go projects and even as an overnight bag.
One ticket for each food item. You can also donate cash. 10 tickets for $10. 25 tickets for $20. Donations are being accepted until Thursday February 18.

Please help out. The Hamilton Area Food Banks are in need of food.


Mr. Canada Post stopped by this morning with a big box of yarn from Classic Elite. There are three new colours of Santorini - all perfect for spring.
Santorini's colorways sing along the matte and shiny textures inherent in the yarn, adding vibrant color to warm-weather garments, wraps and scarves. 
Two balls will make the Sanibel Cowl. You are knitting on a 5mm needle. It's quick to make. What a great gift!

Pattern: Esmeralda Shawl (free from Classic Elite)
This pattern was designed in Sanibel (Santorini's solid coloured cousin). I think it would look awesome with the striping effect of Santorini.

I'm very happy with the outcome of last night's game. I have been a huge Peyton Manning fan since his college days. There was a bit of knitting during the game but I was very nervous and had to watch. Hopefully I'll get more squares knit on my throw tonight. Billions is waiting for us.
