AHOOOOY there!

“Damn, Rosi, where the hell did you go off to?” I been around. Well….not in THAT sense, but ya’ll know what I mean. I have been soooo freaking busy at work (plus working OT to accumulate cheddah for RHINEBECK!) 😉


Ahem. Yea. Who’s NOT looking forward to Rhinebeck?? You’re not?? You’re crazy. So. Today I bring to you MORE Yarn Ahoy. Ya’ll know I love me some Yarn Ahoy yarnies (plus her yarns are SO photogenic, doncha think?). Oh, she’s holding a contest on her blog for things people have knit with her yarns. I entered my Fuego Socks. Go check it out. This is her Superwash Sock (375 yds). She recently increased her yardage from 350. WOO HOO! 🙂 Can you see the squishiness factor of 1000 in these pictures? First colorway: Ashes & Embers. Perfect name for it because you can almost SEE the embers glowing amidst the ashes.

Second colorway: Rohtang Pass. Not sure what that one means. I’m sure we could google it. But I HEART the colors in this one:

All these enticing pictures of Yarn Ahoy pr0n are not without a reason. There’s a contest going on behind the scenes at The Soapy Knitter. I can’t tell you guys what it is because I want it to be fair and all that. HA! But, the winner will win it soon. I promise. ROFLMAO Secretive, much?

But I CAN tell you that the winner will receive fabo prizes. Besides a goody package from me, he/she/it will receive a $25 gift certificate to Yarn Ahoy so that you can share in the squooshiness with me. 🙂

So….back to your normally scheduled blogging! 😉

PS: There has also been LOTS of knitting and knitting planning going on. Stay tuned for FO’s.

  1. Secret contest? Fun! (Should I make nine comments on this post? Heheheh…)

    How about the kitty?? How goes it with the kitty??

    Oh, and also: RHINEBECK!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  2. I love that Yarn Ahoy! I also love contests! I am planning my own bloggy contest, hope to announce it next week but haven’t figured out all the details yet. So fun!

  3. ‘Rohtang Pass’ is a treacherous pass that connects two valleys in the foothills of the Himalayas. There’s a lot of snow, blue skies & earth (some green in late Spring & summer).

  4. “It”? So, Calvin and Ripple can enter too? Cool. That’s 3 entries for me. If a cat wins I promise to knit it toys with the yarn. 😆 Ok no not really. That stuff is gorgeous though.

  5. hahah Calvin and Ripple left comments! Too cute. Now, what’s this about a secret contest? Let’s hope it involves cool shoes from Zappos….. 🙂
