Thank you to everyone who took part in my contest to spread the word about p/hop. With all of the news from Japan, there is all the more reason to knit a p/hop pattern. When you pay your pennies per hour of pleasure, you will in turn support Doctors Without Borders, one of the many organizations that is trying to help. That being said, the winner of the Becoming Art Cielo Fingering yarn is wrchili! I will be contacting you soon for your mailing address so that I can send off your yarn.
Meanwhile I'd like to tempt you all a bit more to knit a p/hop pattern by showing off my finished Trinity Shawlette. It blocked beautifully, and as it was my birthday yesterday, it was easier than usual to corral my husband into taking some pictures for me:
Pattern: Trinity Shawlette by Anni Design
Source: p/hop, of course!
Materials: 1 skein of Malabrigo Sock yarn in "Aguas", and US size 5 needles
Modifications: I went down 1 needle size and added an extra lace panel. Details are here on Ravelry.
And now I am off to find my heaviest wool sweater, and my largest umbrella to take along with me while I keep score at our son's morning baseball tournament, which we were told is going ahead despite the wind and rain! When I come back I will see what everyone else is up to on this FO Friday.
