Hi Everyone

Time for another great giveaway from our friends at della Q!  This month our lucky winner will receive the Turquoise Vines Circular Needle Case:


I love the colors in the case, which just happen to be della Q’s signature color.  This case is as much about function as it is about being pretty.

To be eligible to win the case, leave a comment below telling me what you are knitting right now, yarn & needles being used.  Leave a comment over on the della Q blog as well.  Comments must be left by midnight Wednesday, April 20th.

  6. Lynn Says:

    I was in the middle of knitting two sweaters for two grandchildren when a lovely friend who is battling two different types of lung cancer, one in each lung, asked if I would make a fluffly tube scarf for her. She needs the softness of the fluff for her now over-sensitive skin, and the warmth of it encircling her neck because she now gets cold so easily. SO … I have NO idea what I am using … I just pulled the yarn from the enormous stash that so many of us accumulate (I really WISH they’d stop coming out with more and more beautiful yarns that just beg to bought!), grabbed a size 15 Addi 16″ circular and started knitting. The first scarf is almost done … and another is about to be started. Unfortunately, the grandchildren have probably outgrown the sweaters I interrupted. But special friends, in special circumstances, deserve special consideration, don’t they …

    I am knitting a Union Jack faux-hawk called “God Save the Queen.” I hope to wear it next week in LONDON!!

  26. stashmuffin Says:

    Okay: I just left a message saying I’m working on “God Save the Queen” Union Jack faux-hawk, but I didn’t say I’m using Brown Sheep bulky on size 11 needles, I believe. It is knitted rather large and felted down. That helps the faux-hawk stand up, too.

  27. Angie Says:

    I have a few things going right now. I am working on the Autumn Vines Beret by Never Not Knitting for Knit Picks 16″ circ. I have also started Cookie A.’s Monkey Socks, and a couple of toys for my kids. A circular organizer is what I need–they are a mess!
