Oh my goodness! I just almost splurted a mouthful of tea over the screen when I saw that I'd won! That's just fantastic, thank you. :0)

I must say that I've really enjoyed receiving each month's Under Cover Club square. It was a bit of a slog sewing it all together but definitely worth the end result. I've used it non-stop since I made it and it has pride of place on the back of the chair, ready to throw over me when I get chilly (it's been really cold this weekend).

I've also enjoyed seeing how everyone else's covers have come together - I especially like the look of a border around each square.

Thank you so much!


Finished Cover Drawing...and the winner is....

Linda - Congratulations!

Thank you to all who participated and congratulatons especially to all who finished their covers.

Pictured below is my cover, which I really love. I Have decided to add a border around the whole thing in the black O'Wool.

Final Drawing is Finally Here!

Sorry for the delay with the final drawing. I was sick with pneumonia from Christmas until just about 2 weeks ago so I just wasn't able to follow through on the drawing. But now is the time.

Everyone should have received an email from me telling you the details. The drawing will be held Sunday, February 17. Above is a picture of the prize some lucky Under Cover Club member will win. It consists of an Eco Organic Bag, 1 skein of Pagewood Hand Dyed Sock Yarn, 1 set of Swallow dpns and a bar of Thistle Ridge Soap in Twin Mint.

If you have not finished your cover and have time to do so, post a picture here at the blog so you can be included in the drawing.

Thank you all for being a part of the Under Cover Club. I have enjoyed it very much and I hope you did too!

Question about November's Patterns

I'm working on November's double shipment & have missplaced one of the pattern pages. I have the page with Clustered Stars & Gingerbread. What are the names of the other two patterns? Maybe with the names, I'll be able to find the pattern.

Octobers Squares Are Done!

Yes, I'm way behind..... I have been enjoying the Club and miss it now that my little packages are not coming anymore.
I have decided to be a rebel and change the colors a bit, so my October blocks are actually brown! I am off now to wind my hank for November...better late than never!

Day late, but one afghan ahead!

I actually finished this last Thursday but have been away from email until today. We were enjoying a wonderful long holiday up in the Sierra Nevada. The weather had been good and we went for a long snowshoe ... here's what we found:

So, enough of that, here's proof that the afghan is done!

It took almost 1/2 a day of rearranging and, with some help from Excel, we figured out a pattern that I'm very happy with. The edging is a quick single crochet in Brown Sheep Lambs Pride. It's not organic, but it's what they had at the yarn store near our cabin! I did the edging at Knit Night - and the ladies all loved it.

Thanks to the Yarn Grove for a great afghan - and here's hoping my mom loves it too when it finally gets to Wisconsin.

Happy New Year everyone!

Stick a fork in me ----- I'm done!!!!!

I was determined I would finish this today. It's taken me all day to sew the squares together (one of them was still slightly wet, but I just couldn't wait for it to dry!) and I finished it about 15 minutes ago. I can't tell you how good it feels to get it done! ;0)
I did a row of single crochet around the edge in Cascade 220, colourway Fern.
