Sweetheart Socks - Plus a GIVEAWAY!

I finally finished my Sweetheart Socks and they were well worth the wait. They are beautiful! They are the prettiest socks I have ever knit and just looking at them makes me happy.

While finishing them I realized why they took so long from beginning to end, all those tiny little cables on tiny little needles really is tough on the hands! But they fit well and they look good from every angle!

I probably won't be knitting this pattern again, but I'm glad that I've done it this once. That heart cable is just so pretty!

Now to the fun part, I've got a beautiful skein of Silver Label Mulberry Silk yarn in the Royal Flush colourway to give away. Its the same colourway used in for my Sweetheart Socks, though the socks were knit in my Blue Label Fingering Weight yarn.

Here is the lovely skein of yarn that is up for grabs:

This skein is 95g, 475yds. A bit shy of my regular 115g, 550yds put up that I do for my silk yarn. It would be perfect for a small shawl or any shawl or scarf pattern that is typically written for a skein of sock yarn (perhaps a Haruni shawl?) To enter to win simply leave a comment under this blog post telling me what you would like to make with this skein. A winner will be chosen at random and announced here on the blog next Friday and this skein will be mailed to them asap. Please don't forget to leave your e-mail address in the comments so I will be able to get in touch with you should you win!

Good luck!
