The finalist are AND stay tuned for more in January!!

So your comments and ideas for our little skeinlettes giveaway of the new (to us) Koigu yarn are phenomenal!! It is so cool to see what you all come up with when faced with amazing yarn to work with!!

I have had a hank of Koigu in my stash for sometime and just grabbed two more hanks in contrasting colors and have been knitting flowers for last minute gifts with them!! It has to be one of the yummiest yarns I have worked with!

The pattern is from the book Brave New Knits and I have been making hair clips, pins and using 2 flowers together to give things more depth. This is a great stash buster project AND button stash buster project too! I mention the project as I think the Koigu ones are my absolutely favorite flowers!!

I can't wait to work in more depth with the Koigu yarn and am thinking that I may just have to work up the Churchmouse pattern Barb's Koigu Ruffled Scarf asap!! I will be using some of the spotted hanks for this scarf and it will just be the choosing of the colors that will be the challenge.

Drum roll please...we have chosen our 3 finalists,
Tracy your idea for the scarflette/veil is in, Leah your hip zig zag baby hat is in and Daria your lace based hat is in!! CONGRATULATIONS and I can't wait to see your ideas done up!

Now that we have chosen our skeinlette finalists we will need the finalists to contact bethany@jimmybeanswool.com with your shipping information (BY FRIDAY THE 24TH @ 9:00 AM). Normally I would organize the shipping of your skeinlettes for you, but I was graciously given this week off, YIPPPEEEE!! Thanks Bethany for helping out with this and for you fantastic organizational skills!

I hope you will check back and leave your comments on the blog the week of January 24th-28th which will help us choose the final design!

As always happy knitting and crocheting!

Jeanne
