I very rarely win prizes. I don't know whether it is something to do with my surname - Winning - but it just doesn't happen.
Except that the other day, it did. I have won a runner-up prize from The Making Spot. It is a softback booklet - Irresistible Christmas Gifts to Knit - and I am rather pleased about it.
I am particularly pleased because amongst other things, it contains a copy of Martin Storey's pattern Homestead.
I have liked this pattern for a long time, but somehow never got round to buying Rowan Homestead Classics, which was the book where it was published. And now I have the pattern, for free. Excellent! I've been looking through the stash, and have found Felted Tweed in Seafarer and Clay, which I think will work beautifully.
By the way, The Secret Thing is finished. Normal knitting content will resume shortly!
