Contests, Swaps & Penguins

Apparently I have won a contest on a knitter's blog! I am really proud of this. My Best Friends A Dork was running a contest for project ideas for the next project to knit. She is my sock sister for Sockaplooza, so I visit her site regularly. I posted up the Lucky K8 fingerless gloves that I have my eye on from the new issue of Magknits. I think that lovely alpaca that I dyed up the other day will be perfect for that pattern. Hmm...I wonder if they would work like craft gloves and help keep my hands from cramping from too much knitting?

In other news I joined the One Skein Swap and here is a new button:





I am pretty excited about this swap. I really like the book and even if I don't get it by then I can come up with something on my own. I'm pretty inventive, so it seems like it will be a lot of fun. I think that I will be sending off handspun for it. I just have to decide which one.



I also really need to add this button. I know that I already have one button for Cast-On, but as Sarah pointed out I do both spin and knit. Now if she does one for idye, I might just have to draw the line.

As for Penguins, Sarah was showing me this really cute article on knitting for Penguins. I just had to look it up and post it, because it was just so cute. I'm just sad that it is over, because I would have knit little jumpers for bitty Penguins. My husband loved it too, since he is such a linux geek.
