It was close, but Trek is our winner. Trek has the most useless junk in her cupboard. It is useless and the cupboard is full. Her collection of outdated appliance manuals earned her this:
The picture doesn't do the colors justice, but it is "Pebble Beach". All yummy blues and browns.
Here is the thing, and I feel a little guilty about this (who am I kidding I'm Irish Catholic, I feel guilty about EVERYTHING) this isn't a big sacrifice for me. I have tried to get excited about socks. I love the sock postings on everyone's blogs. I just don't think they are for me.
There are several reasons for this. I'm in a very conservative profession where black socks are the uniform. I don't see myself wearing bright socks. I can't convince anyone else that they want to wear socks that I have knitted for them. I hate DPNs. (with the hot passion of a thousand burning suns. No really that much!) There ARE TWO OF THEM! Yes, you finish one and you have to do another right away. I was hoping to try magic loop socks two at a time, but I can't seem to figure it out.
So, I'm glad the STR is going to make another knitter happy because I don't see myself ever using it.
Trek, e-mail me your address and the yarn will be on it's way. Thanks again for participating in my humble contest. I hope you all enjoyed it, I know I certainly did.
