And the winner of last week's contest is... Melleknits, who said that if she won the contest, she would choose two skein of Merino Light in Oxblood and Smokestack to knit a Daybreak shawl by Stephen West.
Daybreak certainly has been a pattern that I've heard a lot about in the store- many of you are picking up skeins of Merino Light, Tosh Sock, Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label and Malabrigo Sock for this one. I don't believe I've seen one come in the store finished yet, but I'll try and snap a shot if I do. The Wingspan shawl certainly seems to be on everyone's needles and minds lately- and with good reason. I didn't want to allow the one Jan brought by to leave the store!
So let's have a new contest! Take a look at the Tosh Sock and tell me what color you'd like to knit into what sock pattern, and I'll randomly choose a winner to receive a skein of Tosh Sock of his/her choosing. To be eligible for the contest, just leave one comment on this post by Wednesday, April 25 at midnight EST. I"ll e-mail the winner and also post here likely within a week of the end of the contest.
I've already knit the Tomato color of Tosh Sock (sold out right now) into a Nutkin. But I think I would choose next to knit a pair of Monkey socks with the Mansfield's Garden Party or Flashdance. Or perhaps Vintage Sari. All are colors I adore and all are quite different. And it's been awhile since I've knit a Monkey pair and that pattern has been on my mind lately- such an easy yet satisfying knit.
