The February Giveaway Post

Hey gang!  This months giveaway is another bright one to chase away those winter blues.  We've had bona fide winter weather 5 days in a row in my area of Texas-sleet for two days and snow three days in a row.  I am pretty happy about it because we so rarely get this kind of weather and snow never stays around for too long.  But I know that a great many of the folks in the Northeast are OVER. IT.

This months yarn is called Punky Monkey and is on my Paparazzi base.  438 yd/100g/75% SW Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina.  So bright and fun and sparkly to boot.

To enter, just comment on this post-Please leave your ravelry ID or email address in your comment so that if you win, I can get in touch with you.

But wait!  There's more!

If you want an extra entry you can share this blog or my Website on social media and/or follow Brazen Stitchery on Facebook, Instagram, or Ravelry.

Winner will be chosen via a random number generator on March 8, 2015.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Workin' It Wednesday February 25

Hello gang!  I know I have been absent lately but 2015 has been kicking my tail feather personally and I have been doing some behind the scenes work at ye olde shop.  I went and hung out with some super fun folks down in San Antonio for Valentines Day so the first half of the month was spent doing that, and since I've been back, I have been working on building a personal website for Brazen Stitchery.

Swing by the Website and let me know what you think.

I have been knitting away on a new color way of mine called 'Luck O' The Irish'.  Right now it is available at Inskein Yarns in San Antonio and JenningStreet Yarns in Fort Worth.  I will be putting a custom dye listing for it up on the website on Friday.

I am trying my hand at afterthought heels on this pair.  There's always something new to learn in the knit sphere, and I'm pretty excited about learning this skill.  I have many skeins of sock yarn languishing in the stash-Brazen and commercial.

I am almost to the point where I am going to start knitting the ribbing part of the cuff, and then it's not too long and I'll go back and knit the heel.  I'll let you guys know how it goes.

On Friday's blog, I will start Freebie Friday.  This will be a last Friday of the month giveaway hosted here on the blog.  So, keep an eye out-I haven't yet decided if it's going to be a bag or yarn.

So, what have you been working on this week?
