If I were any farther behind in blogging (and everything else), I’d be able to see my own backside.  Apologies.

First, answers to the Blogiversary contest:

Most-read blog post of Year 2: My review of Quince & Co.’s Chickadee yarn outpaced every other post, including the Knitter’s Review Retreat.  No one got that one.

Most common Internet search term hit:  Shelter Button Jar – folks clearly looking for alternate photos of this green-blue/blue-green colorway in one of the most appreciated new yarns of the year.  No winning guesses there, either.

The Winners and the prizes: Lots of goodies to share with you for taking the time to write.  Any time one of you drops in for a read I feel like a friend has come by for a cuppa tea. Winners were drawn from a basket by a co-worker in a most unsophisticated traditional manner.

Cashmere for Jacqui

A reminder to owlways knit for Pat

Malone: A "crunchy" Cormo cross from Fox Hill Farm

Phlame: Welcome and enjoy Dirty Water DyeWorks Julia

KnittingKittens, this was NOT rigged. Foxfire 4 U.

Winners will all be notified via the email addresses you attached to your comments.

As this entry posts, I am on a wee trip out-of-state that involves a tiny bit of yarn-crawling in my “home away from home.”  Methinks a different time zone and some precious time alone will do a world of good. Of course, if I could quit obsessing about what travel project I should take, I would be using my time more efficiently.

I left behind one finished shawl on the wires; another is waiting on the runway.  Both involve some slightly different blocking techniques to achieve different ends.

I’ll talk to you soon, but for now, NutmegOwl must fly.

      Erin,
      You can use the link in the blogroll at right to get to Knitter’s Review. The annual retreat happens in November – you’ll find it there in the calendar of events, or in my archive from Nov 2010 and Nov 2009. Thanks for coming by!

    Delightful! Your top two posts are reviews of yarn 🙂 That makes you a great and early finder of wonderful stuff.

    Congratulations to the winners … I’m off to find out what Vosges chocolate is.
