Madrona Treasures, Part 3

Remember these?

Until Madrona, it was pretty much the only thing I'd ever won. It was some sort of tennis shindig and winning it meant I was out of the running for the really good prizes, like free lessons. I brought it home to DD which made me look awesome, so not a total loss.

I won this in a drawing at Madrona:

I showed it in an earlier post that was done on my iPhone. I still haven't gotten the hang of mobile blogging--none of my formatting shows up--so it's a really crappy post. Plus, I neglected to mention that one of my favorite bloggers has a pattern in this book. Ann McClure, of The Adventures of Traveling Ann fame, has a lovely pair of socks featured in this book: Eyelet and Feather Socks. And no, I'm not giving away this copy. It's mine, all mine. There are 101 patterns in this book, all of which use my favorite weight of yarn, sock yarn. Seriously, you want this book. But you can't have mine. I'm hoping I'll meet Ann some day and she'll autograph it for me.

I will leave you with a screen shot I took of an online 8 ball

Ahem. More on this later.


  1. Awww, you're sweet.
    If we do meet of course I'll sign it for you!

  2. Going to go check out Ann's blog!

    I have that book. I love it too. I keep trying to decide what I want to knit first. I have startitis. I need to be stopped.

  3. I bought the book when it came out, I couldn't stop myself. I have yet to make anything from it, but there are many tempting patterns. Have you tried any of the baby patterns for Tilly?

  4. I also won this book! (a different place/blog)
    I haven't made anything yet but the socks sound like a good start.

  5. Now let me get this right, are you saying I can have your book ? Thanks !!!

  6. I "have" to make a trip to the yarn store this weekend and that looks like a great book - thanks for the tip.

  7. What a lovely book. Lucky you!


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
