And the winner is....

I love Ambah O'Brien's shawls. I have knit many and highly recommend her patterns. This is her Orianna Wrap. The pattern isn't new but I have always loved it. For the past few weeks I have been emailing with Steffi at Uschitita and Steffi is dying us more yarn. We are going to have kits for Orianna. These should (I can't make any promises) be arriving in April. There will be 8 kits in the box. One is for me which means 7 kits for you.
Cast on Orianna and have fun knitting as you play with subtle textures and colour transitions. Sometimes fingering weight yarns are held together with co-ordinating Kidsilk lace strands, but other times they are held singly and alternated to add to the textured effect. Stripes and lace also combine to further showcase the contrasts and textures. The result, a luxe wrap cosy enough for the coolest of days will certainly be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe. Keep your colours muted or play with bold choices; the options are limitless.

The colours are gorgeous - I can't wait.

I went to see Trish today (no more grey) and I wanted to take my knitting. Lynn and I rolled a skein of Highland so I had enough yarn. This is the message on my watch.
We did the draw today. Lynn is mixing the tickets.
We asked a customer to draw.

I got home from my hair appointment and helped Lynn for an hour. Then my stomach started to act up so I went home to lay down. I'm feeling better now but didn't have a chance go call the winner before I left.

Congratulations to Linda K. I will be calling Linda tomorrow morning to let her know.

I love Ambah's knits as well. This is one I would love to knit. I am currently knitting the Adventuresome Wrap and love knitting mohair with fingering. I love the texture mix. I hope you feel better soon.
