Odds and Ends

I have three totally unrelated things to post about (well mostly unrelated, they all involve yarn!), but instead of 3 short posts, you get one post about all 3!

1. I'm working on a new pair of socks for Laura with some yarn that she dyed. After stacking like crazy with the pattern as written, I think I finally have them under control
The pattern is Duckies and it's hard to see in this picture, but the lace should open up beautifully when worn.

2. A note to myself: Do not leave yarn sitting out where children can get to it while they are left unattended.
In preparation to knit Laura's second pair of socks (hey this is somewhat related since it involves Laura again), I had her MM Copper Patina sitting out next to the tv. Anthony and I were putting away some laundry, it it got WAY too quiet downstairs. I rushed down and this is what I found
Not the sort of thing you want to see with any yarn, much less fingering. Luckily for me it was still tied in two places, so it only took me an hour and a half to could have been so much worse.

3. I won the Mosaic Moon colorway contest for June!! I never win ANYTHING so I was so excited that my idea is being made into so pretty yarn. I decided to call it "Gold Coast" since it looks sort of beachy to me and my sister spent a few months living on the Gold Coast in Australia.
Here are a few borrowed pictures of what it looks like. I can't wait for it to arrive in the mail!
