From Susan — Always wanted to be a wiener!!

It’s true!  I won a prize!  I am a member of The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA), and they held a drawing on Ravelry for a cable knitting book and yarn — I was randomly selected!!

The book is The Cable Knitter’s Guide.  Plus I won four skeins of Madelinetosh Chunky in Antler:

Here is a sample project from the book:

Yay!  More yarn!!  🙂 More yarn?  What am I going to do with more yarn?  Oh, boy…the guilt starts. 🙁

No, wait.  No guilt!  It’s FREE yarn!  Yay!  Free yarn!! 😉

PS to Bonnie: I already knit the cables in Mr. Wiener’s little sweater!  It is a photo from the Great American Aran Afghan superimposed with the power of PowerPoint!  Two squares used similar cables, so I substituted a Starrmore cable from St. Brigid’s.  This is the same picture I used in Mr. Wiener’s sweater:


  1. Congratulations! Yes, free yarn is definitely guilt free. It’s the best kind of stash.

  3. Free Madelinetosh Chunky in Antler AND a cable knitting book? Swoon! That’s a pairing made in heaven.

  4. Well, I guess I’ve got an inside track on one of your show-and-tells at Knitting Camp next year. Brava, Susan!
