Wednesday Win

Last week I was lucky (CRAZY LUCKY) to win The Sweatshop of Love's giveaway. My Prize? This crazy ass cool cowl kit from Wool and the Gang.

With gorgeous peruvivan wool (in surprise, my favorite color GRAY!!). This kit comes with everything you need. A simple pattern for a seed stitch cowl, two skeins of yarn and some chunky straight wood needles.

The needles are a great smooth and polished dark wood with a really nice heft to them. Between the chunky yarn and those huge needles this will probably be the worlds fastest knit. Now my only question is, do I make the cowl with their pattern or go rouge and re-purpose this beautiful yarn for something else? I haven't made my mind up, which is just fine. With my holiday knitting still on my needles my selfish knitting is taking a back seat. That's alright though, because the time where I can knit and knit selfishly for myself is just around the corner. And well, it would be a lie to say I didn't have at least a few things hanging around in some project bags for myself.

If you're still looking for some last minute gifts, or like me, plotting all of your soon to be selfish knitting for yourself hop on over to The Sweatshop of Love's Etsy store. She's having a HUGE sale for the next two days. Including both knit and crochet kits to make and already crafted items they're perfect for yourself and for those you love.
