It has nothing to do with the theme and scope of this blog, but I feel compelled to say how concerned I am about the earthquakes and tsunami’s in Japan, and those tsunami’s soon to come. We’ll be hearing about this for a while.
Having said that, I’m going to switch back to knitting and crafts and your regular blog content. Knit Steve has just posted pictures of the second installment of his frog trilogy, which is adorable.
I’ve just about reached the decrease rows, and have to decide whether to decrease the angle or keep the pattern as written. Have frogged back several times trying different angles. It’s a beautiful teapot, but the cozy might end up with a sort of a funny shape, because of the way the top (in particular, the top knob) is made.
Wrapping up with blog contests. I entered a Kama Suutra yarn giveaway at Phat Fiber. I liked Three Fates Yarn’s Facebook Page for that giveaway. Did not enter the Red Heart 75 Days of Giveaways because I don’t want the grand prize (75 skeins of super saver? Really?) but the daily prizes actually don’t sound bad. Last, but certainly not least, I entered the Grand Opening giveaway at restless prarie farm. (this last one might be just past the deadline by the time this post is uploaded).
