Pattern Sale & Winner & March Mayhem!

Hi, Knitters,
I have randomly selected a winner for the Gale's Art 3-month Sock Blank Club. And the winner is.....
gathersnomoss (rav name) or Becky! Becky congratulations. I hope you enjoy knitting your socks. Thanks to everyone for leaving comments and I'll have another giveaway very soon. You can still sign up for Gale's Sock Blank Club! 

If you have sock blanks and you don't want to knit socks, don't forget that I have the perfect little shawl to knit up with one sock blank or one skein of sock yarn. It's called One Love and it is a really fun knit and a great spring/summer shawl. Click here to see the pattern for One Love!

Okay, now for the pattern sale. Over on Barrett Wool Co. we are celebrating the first day of spring (and it was 60 degrees outside yesterday!) by offering a 25% off coupon code for all of our patterns. 

The coupon code is: SPRING2017 and you enter it at checkout. You can use the code on Ravelry or on Barrettwoolco.com. 

Here are the Ravelry links to the patterns on sale (Code: SPRING2017)

And one more quick thing, we have just restocked so much of our Wisconsin Woolen Spun yarns over in the Barrett Wool Mercantile! It is just beautiful yarn and you won't want to miss it.

Over on the Mason-Dixon Knitting March Mayhem it appears my Sheep! pattern has made it through the first round of voting! Thank you so much if you voted. Round 2 voting ends at the end of the day today, March 21, 2017. So if you are voting, the Sheep! and I would love your vote for Round 2.

This is such a fun thing to get some knitting enthusiasm going. I love Ann and Kay of Mason-Dixon Knitting and if you aren't following their new website and shop, be sure to subscribe. They do a fantastic newsletter called Snippets every Saturday morning and I always look forward to it.

I just taught the Sheep! Workshop at the Madison Knitters Guild Knit In last weekend and it is such a fun class. It was wonderful teaching right in Madison at such a big event. 

I loved meeting all of the knitters in my classes and getting to hang out for a little bit with Lucy Neatby, Laura Nelkin, Kate Atherley and Mary Jane Mucklestone. My husband and I took the group out for dinner at the El Dorado Grill on Willy Street, and then we took them over to the Willy Street Co-op for a quick grocery shop. They were seeking out some healthy food to keep in their hotel rooms. 

It was a fun weekend. I hope you are all doing well. I have a fun Taproot Magazine giveaway coming up later this week so I'll be back very soon. 

Much love to you all.

p.s. I forgot to mention one last thing. Vickie Howell (of Knitty Gritty fame) is trying to start up a new knitting show and she has just started a Kickstarter. Click here to check it her campaign video! It sounds like a lot of fun. This would be a great thing for the knitting community!

Congrats to Becky! I am currently taking a class on Craftsy from Lucy Neatby too! I am hoping she can help me as I am so tired of knitting and then having to start over when I make a mistake....doesn't make for much progress on the knitting front! LOL! I have tried lifelines, 'tinking back' and for me 'ripping back' would have to be to the beginning. Any suggestions on how to correct mistakes would be awesome! I know I can't be the only one making them! LOL!
I haven't started your sheep pattern yet but I have it! Happy Spring! Oh, I also got my first and only Taproot magazine and I am in love! It is right up my alley and such a beautiful magazine. I think I need to subscribe and I don't do subscriptions so it is a very special magazine! Thank you for all your links and leads to wonderful people and products...including yours!

I love the Sheep! pattern and it's in my queue! I also appreciate you sharing the info about Vicky Howell's kickstarter. I love watching knitting shows and will definitely contribute as well as share the info on my blog.
