A Winner!

The random number generator told me to pick number 25. The 25th commenter to my birthday post was Uberstrickenfrau! I've emailed her, too. She gets to pick between these two skeins of Colinette Jitterbug:

Jitterbugs
Sahara or Raspberry


Thanks to everyone who entered!

In other Jitterbug-related news, here's the skein I won in Courtney's contest.

Jitterbug Fruit Coulis

I'm keeping this gorgeous Fruit Coulis Jitterbug for me! It's pinker and brighter than it appears here, as is the matching tissue paper Courtney used to wrap it. It's all so me!! Thank you again, Courtney!

In other knitting news, I finished the second Monkey sock. This picture is a little blurry, but I like how it shows the pattern.

Specifics:
Pattern: Cookie A's Monkeys
Yarn: Emily Parson's Sophie's Toes in Seafoam
Needles: Size 1 rosewood DPNs (love my rosewood DPNs!)
Modifications: I started with a picot cuff rather than a ribbed cuff
Comments: I love these -- the pattern, the yarn, my picot cuff. I'm happy, happy, happy!!

It's official. I only like those Monkeys when they're knit in solid or solidish colors. Very nice!

Oh, SO PRETTY! I really really need a pair of pretty socks to wear around the office. They don't have to fit in shoes or anything...
