Thursday Update! Progress on the Kimono Jacket

April 7, 2011

Hi friends,

I hope you’re having a great day. I’ve been knitting all morning but alas I need to do some “work work”. But as soon as I’m done I’m going back to finishing this kimono jacket because I am seriously having a blast with it. The colors are just my cup of tea!

What do you think?

And the winners are…..

April 4, 2011

Hi friends,

OK this was so tough. The one terrible downside to these contests is choosing. I personally hate it because there are usually some good ones out there! This time it was really tough because I had over 300 entries… um holy smokes! And they were all super inventive. But alas, I had to take a big-girl-pill and pick one even though I felt like kicking and screaming.

So, below are the names of the winners of the silk sari ribbon color naming challenge!
Congrats and stay tuned for the next contest, you could be the next winner! But for today, these winners will get a free skein of the color they won for!

And for this week, these new colors will be on sale! So get ‘em while they’re hot!

Monday update: cute as a Button- the hat and the husband

April 4, 2011

Hi friends,

The official husband of DGY--fishing!

I sure do hope you had a nice weekend. I know I did because I got to spend some time with Mike and we did some good ol’ fashion grilling and fishing (well I fished for a little until I lost 3 flies in a row… that’s my limit before I lose my sanity too).

But Anne is a fellow Darn Good Yarner and she sent me a great picture of the first hat she ever knitted and it was Darn Good Yarn’s Cute as a Button Hat (click here to check out the pattern)

Remember you just need two skeins of any of DGY’s Yo Yo Diet Thick Thin Wool Yarn

She rocked it out didn’t she?

Thank you for sharing this Anne!

Have a great day everyone!

xoxo
