Rory won! Congratulations! Thank you all for your comments. It was fun to read what folks had to say. I'm thinking about what I want to celebrate next, so we can do it again.
The kid drew Rory's name out of her pink hat. The pattern from the hat is from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop that appeared on PBS. I was able to get the DVD's from the library. It was great. I learned how to do Fair Isle Knitting. Not bad for my first try. Elizabeth can teach you anything from how to cast on, knit and purl, all the way to advanced techniques. I love her approach to knitting. Watch it. It's worth it. The yarn is Paton's Classic Wool. The hat has been worn and washed a bunch and she still loves it. I made her mittens and a scarf to match.
Again, thanks for your comments and for stopping by. Keep reading. I think I'm going to write about beets next. It will be interesting, I promise.
