The Sexy Knitter is giving away a free pattern through Ravelry. You just need to queue or fav at least 5 patterns from her list and send her a private message to let her know which ones you choose. She will then send you a random pattern from your list. Everyone is a winner, but hurry on over, the give away only lasts through March 16th.
I already got my free pattern and plan to knit it over our Spring Break.
While I haven’t been blogged the last two months, I have been keeping busy. Here are a few of my completed projects.

I hope to be more active blogging again very soon.
Last night I realized the juxtaposition of old technology versus new technology.
Yes, that is my hand crank circular sock machine and my iPad. I was able to watch a movie while cranking out a pair of silk/wool socks. The best of both worlds.
Yesterday while ladling my sauce into a jar, I heard a cracking sound. I looked at the jar and saw no visible sign of stress, so I went on my merry way. As I finished the jar and lifted it to put in the canner rack, the bottom literally fell out. I lifted the jar and the bottom as well as a quart of sauce was all over the counter, the cabinet, and the floor. A near perfect circle of a crack on the jar bottom. WOW. After a quick clean up, we inspected the jar and were amazed at how clean the break was (sorry no picture…there was still a shock factor since I’d never had that happen before). So, all in all, I ended up with just 10 quarts of sauce to show off today. One went straight into the frig for dinner this week.
I did get a chance to sit at my knitting machine yesterday as well. I was able to knit up this hat using some handspun yarn I had in my stash.
I love the little flower that hangs down the back.
