I have been laid up for over a week now with a bad case of strep! Seems like everyone around me is catching something so it must be making its rounds somehow. For the first time in over a month, I wasn't able to knit for several days straight. Since Thanksgiving, I've had my needles out every second I've been home trying to get my Christmas gifts completed. Or, at least every day until getting sick. At that point, I wanted to make sure I touched my yarn as little as possible to prevent risking germ transfer into the fibers.
The good news is, I was able to get almost all of my gifts done in time for Christmas. The only ones I wasn't able to finish right on time were a sock monkey and a flower clip for a couple friends/co-workers. However, since I ended up being out sick for a week anyway, it didn't matter because I couldn't have gotten the gifts to them in time anyway!
I leave you with the final 2012 giveaway, the one I wasn't able to do last week since I was sick. The first giveaway was a pattern, the second a book, and the third a knitted item. The fourth and final giveaway, as promised, will be yarn. And not just any yarn, but a skein of Noro! I've learned in the last six months just how popular Noro yarn is, and how crazy people go over it. It's bright color ways and high quality of fiber make for a very unique yarn, slightly different with every skein. I am giving away one skein of 'Transitions', pictured below.
As with the other giveaways, I can only ship within the contiguous 48 states. All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this blog post by 12pm EST on Saturday, December 29th. A winner will be chosen at random and emailed for their address so I can ship it to them.
Until next time, happy knitting!
