Show Your Spirit!

I have a friend, Amy... You all know that she and Sheryl will be opening a yarn store next week....When showing knitting Spirit she is definitely the first person that comes to mind! She has purchased many cool t-shirts that forever display her undying love for her favorite hobby and now, business! So what was this little story about? How I show my knitting Spirit!!

Granted it isn't much but it's a start ;) So how do you show your love for knitting? What's your Spirit? Is it just simply knitting in public or do you have some sort of paraphinela that displays it? I want to know! And see it!

Your mission for the Month of April is to decide the best way you show your knitting Spirit and blog it! It can be any type of tribute, lets face it we are all crazy about knitting and want to share the love..... When you do blog about it please email me (catherinekerth AT hotmail DOT com) and let me know so I can make sure to announce it so others can read it. Please put Knitting Spirit in the subject of the email so it doesn't get lost :).
I will make room on my left side bar for your name and link the Spirit post..
Then your name will be added to the random drawing. At the end of the month I will put together a goodie bag from Yarntopia...Amy and Sheryl's new store....And send it to the name that is randomly drawn.....

I am hoping to get a lot of response to this and would like to give more prizes... If you are a retailer or Etsy shop owner and would like to donate or give a discount to other randomly drawn names please email me and I will ADVERTISE your Generosity!

I agree on the cascading leaves. They look like a more fun challenge than the others, and not so holey. :)

I vote Mata Hari :-)

Blogger Tammy said...

Cascading leaves is my choice too.

I don't see a poll but I'll leave my comment and vote for Mata Hari!

You know, I think maybe *I'll* do the cascading leaves! I must admit, that's the one I like the best from these four. Thanks for the inspiration!

Depends on what yarn you are referring to. Is it the Socks that Rock yarn you are planning on knitting?

Cascading Leaves IS a great pattern! I have done that one before, though still don't have a pair done in that pattern. (LONG story!)

I do love the first pattern, as well. Simple, but effective.

I've done a pair of worsted thujas and a pair with more stitches in crazy cotton and they're fun to knit if you need something stressless..

the cascading leaves is pretty but not all that different from the flying eagle or.. eagle flight.. one I'm working on now.

mata hari is the one that catches my eye from this lot, it's different from anything I've done.. and may need to be next on my list. :)

My choice would be Cascading leaves. I think the Show Your Spirit is a great idea and now I just need to decide how to do it.

I love the idea of showing your knitting spirit!! What a fun concept. I like all the sock choices you listed, but I'd have to say that Cascading Leaves is probably my favorite. Looking forward to seeing your socks! Take care! :-)

Wandered over from the Townie sock knitters :)

I think we're greatly outnumbered by the Cascading Leave Brigade, but I'm going for the Mata Hari Socks. I discovered this sock pattern a week ago or so and I'm going to make them soon too as I just LOVE them, they're simple, stylish and different.

Cheers Eva

"Knitting Spirit" is a great idea! It should make for some interesting posts.

As for the socks, I vote for Thuja, but they're all great.

I am currently knitting the Cascading Leaves sock pattern. It is a great pattern. Easy to learn.

Although cascading leaves is on my list to make pretty soon, I really like the crisp look of the thuja. Maybe it's the color, I don't know. I just really prefer that one.

I've been looking for the perfect yarn to knit myself a pair of Cascading Leaves so that would be my choice.

Blogger Tanja said...

I say the Mata Hari. Thats on my list to do! They have a really nice look to them!OR....you could just do them all. :)

My vote is for Cascading Leaves - I'm making a pair right now and love the pattern. My second choice would be Thuja as they are the next socks I'm going to make.

Cascading Leaves is a hand's down winner in my book too. Followed closely by Mata Hari. Heck, knit them all! One can never have too much knitting going on! I keep at least one project in my vehicle at all times. I've carried a knitting bag instead of a purse for years now (I get some clerks with puzzled looks on their faces when I'm trying to extricate my wallet from rogue yarn to pay for stuff). There is a knitting basket in my, ahem, loo, another project next to my bed and then there is my knitting corner. Someday my husband will probably snap and strangle me with my stash. My point is, knit them all baby, knit them all!

Would you believe I'm casting on for Mata Hari as I read your blog?! Take it a sign - go with the Mata Hari pattern and let's compare when we finish.
