The Winner is...

And the winner of this :

is Jennifer of It's Rocket Science. Congratulations and thanks to all who guessed the location of my Thursday post. It is always fun to give away yummy yarn! Jennifer, if you just send me your physical address I will pop this in my mail. I think you have my email? If not, post a comment and I will respond, ok?

I am really enjoying the Aran Knitting book by Alice Starmore. I wish that this would be reprinted, as it is so expensive to buy--over 200 on ebay and other such sites. But, I am enjoying my interlibrary loan copy. I just worry someone will realize how much this book is worth and either refuse to lend it to patrons or run off with it to make some money. Sigh. It does become apparent as I look at this book how much I have to learn about knitting. To make one of these gorgeous sweaters I better start practicing my cabling. Makes me want to cast on for my little cabled purse that I have had on deck for a while....

Maureen suggested look at Vicki's St. Brigid on Knitorious. Wow. Just an amazing sweater! And a super knitting blog. I've added it to my Bloglines feeds.

I managed to rip my lace project--The Flower Basket Shawl--back to a reasonable spot--I didn't loose everything back to the lifeline like I suspected I might. I am putting in lifelines this time at every repeeat. Ahem. Here's a picture:

How do you get a good picture of unblocked lace? I have no idea. But, I think I made it to the 5th repeat--not quite sure with the ripping. I 'll have to count stitches at the end of this one to see where I am at.

And, just to raise my spirits, I stepped out on our back deck this morning and took this lovely spring pictures:
