Cable Challenge Recap

First off let me thank you all for participating. It was loads of fun for me and I hope for you as well. Some knock-out projects were created for this challenge. Some of you amazed us further by finishing multiple knock-out projects!

The clear yarn of choice was Karabella Merino Silk DK with about 10 pushpins of potential and quite a few finishes. This was followed closely by Rowan Lima & Karabella Aurora 8 potential projects. Lima had more finished projects but Aurora 8 is a yarn that everyone seems to love knitting.

Marie had statistics in her favor when it came to drawing for prizes having turned in 3 hats, a pair of socks, a pullover and the only baby garment entered. None of these entries were easy knitting either.

Nancy amazed us by making 2 pullovers, a shawl, and a cardigan. Again, none of these were easy knitting either. Amazing.

December 26, 2009 we held the drawings for the prizes at the shop.
