Brag time

Bear with me, but when one wins a contest, it's customary to have a period of pure obnoxious joy. Right?

I WON!

I won first place in the Hill Country Yarns sock design contest!

Who, me?


Yarn: Pictured here - Hill Country Instant Gratification in lavender. Currently on sale, I hesitate to add.

Go on, check it out. I'll still be here.

Pattern: "Quite Contrary" in honor of Mary, Mary. The actual pattern will be available soon through their sock club and presumably on their website sometime after.

The Socks: Belong to my mom, knit for her birthday.

I can't help but feeling really excited about this. I know it's braggy. I'm doing it anyway!
