New and Improved

I know it's late to wish you a Happy New Year. It's even a bit late for a Happy Lunar New Year. But it is a new year for me. Yes, another year older! I believe in the adage that it's better to give than to receive, so I'm kicking things off with a little birthday contest. The winner gets a gift from me and a donation to her (or his) favorite charity.

To enter,

1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite charity (make sure I have some way of getting in touch with you, either through email, your blog, or your Rav ID).

2. You'll get an extra entry for guessing what is currently on my needles:

3. And you get one more bonus entry for guessing which item in the new Spring IK is my favorite.

I'll take entries till Saturday 2/20, 10:00 PM Central. Good luck! (ETA fixed link)


  1. 1. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (

    2. I'm going to guess a sweater.

    3. The link seems to be broken.

  2. 1. my recent favorite is - they make micro loans to entrepreneurs around the world.

    2. reminds me of the "big cables & little ones too sweater" but isn't quite right...

    3. aran necklace cardigan? that looks like my fave anyway :)

  3. 1. Save the Children Fund

    2. Wisteria (?) (although I agree looks like big cables and little ones too). I can't see if they're assymetrical cables or not ..

    3. OK there's three so I can't really win even if I'm right about no 2. but here goes - transverse cardigan, the rose window beret and the aran necklace.

  4. It would be unfair of me to guess because I think I've actually been paying attention for a change ;-)

    It's coming along beautifully!
