Green is my color

I didn’t get last week’s pictures up last night because I was busy finishing this:

Excuse me while I go block it.

Or two winners. Or three. Many. We have many winners.

First winner: Me! I win because 104 of you delightful blog readers commented on my post. One hundred four comments. This is a new record, people! I’m totally stoked about having more than 100 comments, which means I have more blogs to peruse at my leisure, and I hope I stay semi-interesting enough for you to stick around and enjoy my show. Hooray!

Second winner: Casey (whose Etsy shop you must check out) was randomly chosen by the random number generator. It chose comment #42, which I think shows a lot of intelligence in a piece of software. Casey tells me that she has not one bit of sock yarn in her stash, and that my Fern-colored yarn will be the first. Casey, I dropped the yarn in the post office bin today, and you should get it in about a week. Hooray!

Third winner: The votes definitely trended toward the Tuscany shawl, but I have to say that I heard some really compelling arguments for (and against!) all the patterns. Thank you for taking the time to outline your reasons, and for throwing your opinion into the ring. I suppose the ultimate vote is up to me, seeing as I’ll be the one knitting on the project…
and I chose, predictably…

Yep, it’s time I start working this beautiful yarn into something beautiful.
