and the winner is...






well i never had it done on saturday but the winner is vivienne of viviennes pastimes. congratulations vivienne, email me your details and i will have the stitchionary sent to you. vivienne is english and has a very nice blog about knitting but also about her life and about books. go visit!!!

and i have knitted my 8th clapotis. a pleasure to knit as always, and definitely something to keep the owner warm. i love my own and all those who have gotten one hot off my needles has been wearing their's a lot too. that is so nice. and the green, pink, red colourway (noro no 84 is great and classic for a clapotis since this was the colourway mrs dogs steal yarn knitted her's in and she also wrote a love ode to the clapotis.

the clapotis is both nice to wear and fun to knit. there is something delightful about ripping all the stitches you have just knit and see the scarf growing.

and then i got stitchionaries myself from austria, only i bought them at daw-verlag in germany for 23 euros including postage and i cannot begin to say how great they are. they are very useful even if you don't understand a word german. so go ahead. you order them, he sends you a bill and then you make an international bank transfer. if you are interested in design and knitting history the will be classics.

Congrats to Vivienne!
I lvoe how the Clapotis came out.

I'm searching for Piecework still. Nothing in my area has it, but I'm heading to the big city soon and I'll keep my eyes open.

Hope you're doing well.
