Taking it EZ this weekend

Having a blissful Saturday morning, sipping tea, knitting, and watching Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop DVD (a.k.a. geeking out BIG TIME according to DH). Oh how I wish EZ was my nana. She is such a delight to watch and listen to. Not to mention the genius of her knitting! I hope I'm as elegant and delighful as she was when I reach a ripe old age.

Befittingly, I'm working on what is surely an EZ-inspired design. The ever-popular Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's been said a million times, but what joy knitting in the round is! Especially when you're using a sunny, juicy shade of mmmmmmaaaaaaaalllllllaaaaaaaabbriiiiiiigoooooooooooooo!!! I'm almost done and can't wait to show it to you.

Speaking of inspiration and EZ, have you all seen brooklyntweed's latest masterpiece? The Elizabeth Zimmerman Pi shawl (or in this case, blanket). Me wanna, bad!

So, now, onto the blogiversary contest winners. Having a contest was really fun, especially hearing from all you lurky-loos out there. I had no idea that so many people read my blog. I wish I had a prize for each and every one of you.

I've picked two names at random. And the lucky winners are.....

Panda who gets the Koigu


Jenni who gets the Fleece Artist

Congratulations, gals! Please email me with your mailing info and I'll pop your little prizes in the post.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend too!
