In the package were two skeins of Lion brand Fun Fetti yarns, which I already have a good idea as to what I am going to make with them, a skein of LB Magic Stripes sock yarn - yippee! I've never tried this before and always wanted to - thanks a bunch! A lovely skein of Noro Kureyon, a great pair of Bamboo knitting needles and a tube of Bodycology body lotion in the heavenly scent of juicy pomegranate - yum! As if that wasn't enough, she included the most beautiful knitting needle roll ever!
Thank you again, Tina! The KAL was so much fun even without the prizes and I'd surely join up again if there were none. The entire group of people here really made this so very worthwhile and we really have you to thank for it - THANK YOU!

This is the Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark, featured in Interweave Knits Autumn 2006 issue. The new craft: placing beads on knits using a crochet hook.
For more info and pics, feel free to hop on over to my blog.

I got three balls of bright red Bernat Satin sport and a coordinating ball of funfetti yarn. The bright colors are so much fun... my head is brewing with possibilities for a cheery hurry-up-spring project. Tina also included a tube of vanilla buttercream lotion. Mmmm.....
Here is a picture of my cat Roxy checking out the yarn. Orange is her favorite color with red a close second. She is dangerously close to violating the no cats on the table rule (I should have made up a no cats on the yarn rule right from the start... it's simply too late now....)

I'm on Ravelry and think friending each other is a good thing, maybe continue working as a group over there? My name there is mysticklobo.

Pictured above are a skein of Magic Stripe sock yarn, one of Noro, and two red FunFettis, along side a knitting needle roll. When unrolled and opened up, this case has 34 pockets and will hold dozens of pairs of knitting needles and accessories (Needles not included.) I'll problably throw in another little goodie or two, since I have to run to town this afternoon.

GRAND PRIZE DRAWING: I'm going to post a picture of the Grand Prize tomorrow, then I'll be drawing a name for it on the 7th. (I'm kind of evil and thought it would be fun to build some suspense! Mwaa ha ha!!) You will get your name in the pot once for each letter you have earned in the past 6 months. So don't forget, tomorrow I'll post a picture of it and the drawing will be on the 7th.
MORE DO SOMETHING NEW KAL: You want more? Okay, then. I'm thinking that I'll try to do a short summer DSN KAL, maybe running from June to July. Then another one at the end of the year, maybe from October thru December.
I'm going to leave this KAL blog up, so y'all can feel free to post here anytime you'd like. I'll try to post updates about the upcoming dates from time to time.
