Giveaway Winners

Thanks to all who left a comment on my giveaway post about which you prefer for stitch patterns—charts or line-by-line written instructions. I was curious because, as a knitter, I prefer working from charts—and if a pattern doesn't provide one, I will get out graph paper and draw my own chart. But, as a designer, I nearly always include both, even though that adds to production time and is one extra thing the tech editor has to check for errors.

The majority of those who left a comment prefer charts. But quite a few knitters either work only from written instructions and/or prefer to have them as a reference along with the chart. That's helpful to know. Again, thanks to all of you who took the time to share your preferences.

On to the winners! The Random Number Generator selected Gini/birbinia and Caitlin/thinkTAnkgirl.
Congrats! I'll contact you both on Ravelry—or feel free to message me there.

Streusel, in Periwinkle Sheep Delirium in the Cayenne colorway

The Yarn Over KAL is off to a great start, with Hop Brook, Erste, Bluet, and other lace patterns in progress. My own Streusel is going well—I'm loving this new Periwinkle Sheep Delirium yarn more and more (it's fingering weight merino/yak/nylon).

The KAL continues through May 29. Projects finished and posted by then are eligible for several lovely prizes, including Quince & Co. Chickadee yarn. I hope you'll join us!
