Giving Thanks and an FO

I've a little of the Bezzie luck on blog winnings so it's time to give a little overdue thanks for a couple of special treats that came my way recently:
First up are some super cool stitch markers I won in a 3-way...(get your mind out of the gutter)..tie at Penny Karma's Oscar party.

I love them because they don't get snagged in your knitting and they're made by a Knittyhead, Entrelac!

And...I was also a winner in the Sock A Month 3 monthly drawing and received a skein of Chewy Spaghetti's (another Knittyhead) fab sock yarn in the "comfy" colorway.
More proof that Knittyheads are talented people!

On Saturday evening I finished my Inside Out! socks. After my few fits and starts, I really enjoyed making these socks. My first toe ups and I learned short row toes and heels.

Finally, thanks are due to LeftCoast Knitter for this lovely yarn. You see, last weekend a blogless friend from knitting group hosted her annual Knitting Frenzy and Yarn Swap and I was unable to attend so as payback a nice gesture, she picked up two skeins of this lovely yarn:

Really, words fail me. It's so fugly furry.

Bezzie--do you think Shawnee and Lupe need a new friend?

p.s. No cats were harmed during the photographing of this yarn.

You Rock!! The Inside/outs look great! I love Entrelac's SM's too, I even got her sock sized ones. Nice colorway from Chewy Spaghetti too! As for the decoration on kitty, :)

Come on, you know you love that yarn! Maybe we can have a Liberace Knit night with that as the focal point.

I'm so glad to hear someone else is having the streak of luck!
