Endpaper Mitts Completed

Phew! They're done. I can't believe I actually completed them, and ON TIME! Yes these are for a swap. I am going to give them away!!

You can find the pattern HERE
They were a lot of work but the knitting went quick. These were my second stranding project and I have gotten quite good at it. If I haven't mentioned before, I am a continental knitter and am self taught. Anytime I need to learn something new, I look at all of the different ways it can be done and I choose the way that seems most natural for me. I strand with both yarns in my left hand. Some people knit with one in each hand.

This is a shot of the inside. No bunching and no long floats. I guess this is a sign of an experienced strander??? Everyone always turns my stuff inside out and inspects it. Is this good? I have no idea!

Presenting........the 2007 Bobby Awards Prizes

Here are my prizes from the Bobby Awards...

This is the only picture with the bag in it. I LOVE it! It's Lime green with longish handles and a pocket on th front where the Ravelry logo is.

Here is my award. :) Under "The Bobbys 2007" it says "the official inaugral year of the unofficial ravelry awards". (Have a mentioned yet how stinking excited I am to have won this honor???)

These are probably my favoritist part of my prize (yeah I know it's not a word, get over knit hehehe SNORT) I plan on getting "frogged" asap so I can use these babies. :) (for you non-knitters, frogging is ripping out your knitting to fix a mistake or, in this case, it means something entirely different) ;0)

Then I got these pins... (I typed my name on this one with Photoshop)

I think this one is WICKED cute!
and this one is Ravelry's "motto"

Here are two cool lapel pins. The doggie is "bob", Ravelry's official mascot and the other is the Ravelry symbol.

and this is a sticker with Bob on it

This prize is better than I could have hoped for. Definitely not something I could pick up just anywhere, and they made me feel special. :)

I always thought I was funny. It's nice to know other people think so too. LOL (my husband thinks that he's funny as long as he's laughing. it's nice to have some validation to support my claims)
