In early March, I had quite the winning streak.  You've already seen half of the spoils. 

This lovely book of lacy shawl patterns was written by Jen Lucas.  I've done some test knitting for Jen in the past and her designs are lovely and well written. 

In Early March, Carrie had a march madness give away and I won!  Jen even signed the book for me. 

If you are a knitter and want to try knitting some lacy shawls - this book would be a great way to get started.  The shawls are all knit with sock yarn - hem, maybe the title is a give away of that?  But what that means is they are knit using bigger needles and most of them can be made with a small investment - generally one hank of sock yarn. 

Hope March Madness has been good to you as well.  Happy Friday.  


  1. I know you'll enjoy this book, and put it to great use. See, I'm so clueless that I didn't even know sock yarn is different! Happy Easter, G&J!

  2. Sounds like an interesting book. Congratulations!

  3. The shawl on the cover looks like you! Enjoy the spoils. Personally, I'm ready for March to move on.

  4. I love shawls made of sock yarn. THe lace looks intimidating to little old me...

  5. If you start now you can make lots of shawls for Christmas gifts. I made two last Christmas and they were fun.

    Sorry I haven't been around much. Too much going on and I don't get enough computer time lately. Maybe with better weather coming the dogs can play outside more and give me a break.

  6. Sock yarn shawls are my "go to" projects and I've just finished winding a ball to being another! Love the new look to your blog ~ and am glad to hear you are on a winning streak ~ long may it last!
