Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I assume you've heard the phrase, "You don't know crap from Christmas."

I have in my possession a full kit to knit this vest. I am not kidding. It has the pattern, the yarn, the bobbins, the whole magillah. And it can be yours. That's right. It's the season of sharing and I am sharing this with a lucky reader. Just leave a comment swearing to me that you will actually knit this thing (and send in a picture when you're done) and you could be the lucky winner!

Merry Christmas.

Fugshion Emergency!

I always tell my knitting friends about the importance of keeping emergency knitting in the car. Really. What will you do if you you find yourself at the dentist or stuck by the side of the road with no knitting? When I saw these cases at Miss Babs's booth at Sock Summit I knew I had to get one. For you.

Here's how to get it. Send me a candidate for Thursdays are for What the Hell is This? Don't send me the merely unflattering or unfortunate. Send me the epicly awful like a knitted jumpsuit or a carnivorous poncho. Email your entry to jessica AT rose-kim DOT com with "Fugshion Emergency" in the subject line. I'm giving you a week to find something truly dreadful. The winner will be featured next Thursday.

Now It Relates to Knitting

Grosgrain does these completely insanely over the top kid costume giveaways. But this week it's fiber-related.

My Knitting Bag Runneth Over

After the thrill of finishing the back of my Auburn Camp Shirt I quickly started the first front.

The teeny needles were starting to wear on me--both literally and figuratively--so I decided to swatch for the Ravelympics. Kim, my friend from camp, is organizing Team Knitting Camp. I had to join. I've decided to knit the cardigan Seamless Hybrid in the shirt yoke variation. I'm working in good old Cascade 220.

I've got my (alleged) gauge and am ready to start.

I have Meg Swansen's DVD for the Baby Surprise Jacket. I've knit a few already but Meg always has useful tips and tricks. Plus I think I was feeling lonesome for camp. I have a bag of mill ends of Mountain Colors Bearfoot that I've been wanting to turn into a BSJ for a few years. Last night I cast on.

I'm just going to knit through them all and hope that it melds.

I've also got the contest prizes to mail out tomorrow.

That's two tool cases from Schoolhouse Press and several skeins of yarn from Berocco I won as a door prize. I know regifting is a little tacky but why not share the wealth, right?

Last Call for Contest

I got a few extra items at camp I'd like to share so I thought I'd put a last call out to enter to win. You can leave a comment on this post or last Thursday. I'll use a random number generator to pick 5-6 winners on Friday.

I'm back from my retreat. I got some knitting done and lots of spinning. I chatted. I relaxed. It was wonderful. I also shopped at the stash sale. A lot. I came home with a big bag of stuff.

1 cone of Euroflax Linen (green)
1 skein of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock (also green)
1 skein of Tofutsies (blue)
4 skeins of Shepherd Sock (green--I know!Shut up!)
14 skeins of Noro Cash Laine (20% cashmere in browns and blacks)
Sweater Design in Plain English
Folk Mittens
Knitting Around the World
Knitting Ganseys
Patterns for Guernseys, Jersey's & Arans
Knit Your Own Norwegian Sweaters (Dale, 1974)
4 Old Interweave Knits
Knitter's magazine tribute to Elizabeth Zimmermann
Vogue Knitting Book (Spring and Summer 1955)
Shells for Every Occasion (1965)

These items were all being sold at amazing prices. Some were free.

Guess how much all this stuff cost and win a prize! Guess how many unread items were waiting for me in Bloglines and win a prize!

I will try to get my few, meager photos up tomorrow or Tuesday.

ETA: Contest closes at midnight Monday night. And a hint, I read lots and lots and lots of blogs.
