Toe-Up! winners!

Thank you, everyone, for your enthusiasm about Chrissy Gardiner's new book, Toe-Up! I agree with you: there are so many things to love about knitting toe-up socks, and this book is an excellent guide and companion.

I know you are anxious to find out the two winners of the book copies! They are Heather from Ontario, Canada, and Rebecca from Andover, Massachusetts! Congratulations, ladies! Please enjoy!

I will leave you with a picture of beautiful, drool-worthy handspun:

None of it spun by me, but the talented artists at Crown Mountain Farms, Pigeonroof Studios, and A Tree Hugger's Wife enable my handspun obsession just fine ;). I'm amassed quite the collection, right?!?

today seems like handspun posting day!!! I LOVE your collection - so jealous! I'm sure you have lots of fun projects planned!

that handspun is gorgeous!! you have excellent taste, my friend!

I looooove that aqua-colored homespun. Sigh.

Wow, I am definitely drooling over that yarn! It's so beautiful I think my heart just stopped. It's worthless to try to pretend I'm not completely addicted to yarn, especially in amazing bright colors like that!

Wow - how generous of you. I bought Chrissy's book last summer at Sock Summit an I absolutely love it. It's one of my favorite sock books.

That handspun is definitely drool worthy. It's gorgeous! I'm really loving the purple.

beautiful. Just beautiful. Is there a reason you don't spin?

That's a mighty fine collection of handspuns. I think the prettiest (though they are all gorgeous) and the two in the middle that almost look like malachite. Beautiful!

Oh! all handspun is so beautiful!

What a great variety of green yarns! Can't wait to see what you make with them :)

Congratulations to Heather and Rebecca! Good job I ordered the book just in case. lol! I love the colour of the two green skeins in the middle and the purple on on the bottom of the pic. Gorgeous!

There is nothing as beautiful as handspun yarn!

You love handspun. It's only a matter of time before you take the spinning plunge :)

Gorgeous yarn! Beautiful socks to come...

I'm loving the green and dark purple!

Thanks so much for the book, I'm really looking forward to it!

Ooooooo! That yarn is Beeeaaauuutiful! C'mon! Get knitting, knit it up into lovely things, and show us! Show us!
