Wow, you really like orange!

If you can believe it, this has been the very first contest on my blog. I was surprised and happy to see my comment box explode! I've discovered quite a few new blogs too, which is always a blast. So thanks to all my readers who have delurked to participate!

And the winner is.....

----drumroll---

Emma, from StitchnSue!

Emma suggested using my Fuzzy Navel colored yarn to make Drunken Bees, a pattern by DomestiCat. This brilliant idea really cracked me up. Bees getting drunk on Fuzzy navels! Hee hee! Emma, this 260 yds skein of merino sport weight sock yarn with matching lip gloss will be on its way to you shortly.

The pattern that was on everyone's mind though (mine too), is Flint Knits' Marigold (<--pdf link). Am I the only one who thinks that it looks even better in self-striping yarn? (Check out Katie's version and Sandra's if you're not convinced). The only thing keeping me from casting on right away is the difficult problem of choosing the perfect yarn. I have a choice of Vesper's Strange Little Mama, Yarntini's Chocolatini and Mimosa...

By the way, like most of the east coast, I went to Rhinebeck this weekend! Oh so soft....
Pictures and stories for the next post.
