The people have spoken

And you all really seem to like Wyvern with more than 40% of votes. Jabberwocky was a distant second at about 17% which means the whole dragon theme was most appropriate. I did like the suggestion that I name it "Jabbersocky," that's pretty funny. If Jabberwocky had won, I may have had to award two prize.

Anyway, Sara will be receiving a prize from me as soon as I figure out what it is. Let's all give her a round of applause.

In knitting news, I've started another project for the Soy Silk folks.
Remember that Karaoke yarn I was playing with a while back? Well here's a big old 10 pack of a lovely lavender pink and blue colorway. I left them to pick the color and this is beautifully subtle. I'll probably need about half of that for my project so I'll have plenty left over for playing.

Here's what it looks like in ball form. This shows the color progression a little better.

And here's a swatch. It's being knit on the bias which is a more flattering direction for stripes on most people than horizontal stripes are.

Along with the yarn, they included a sample of the new sock weight karaoke to be released at a later date. I've put it next to it's full sized counterpart for comparison. Yummy, no?

And since I've been spinning away...

I got some amazing roving as well. Let's all take a moment to just marvel at it....

Jonelle spun up some of it and posted it on her blog. You can see how it came out here. Being the novice spinner that I am, I'm afraid to use it for fear I'll just ruin a beautiful thing. I'm sure I'll get over it, though.
