As i watched i couldn't help but wonder what kind of stitch that was, It almost looked like a drop stitch. hmmmm.
That got me thinking, contest time but with a twist.
Part one--- Put on your designer hat and figure out what it was and tell me how to do it. I really want that scarf. Just add your comments to this post. The pattern that comes the closest to the scarf on TV will win a nice little box in the mail to add to your stash.
Part two---- After the winning pattern is chosen i will post the pattern. that is where you can get creative. Lets see who can come up with the coolest gilmore twist to the pattern. The winner will also get a nice surprise box in the mail.
So pass on the word to your knitting buddies, lets play nice and get some free yarn.
good luck folks
P.s you may email me directly with any questions about this contest or add it to comments

I think chris is just going to invade too much of her space and the way she is used to running her life. I also think at some point she will get jelous of how he is there for Gigi but was not for rory.
Also could they have made layne look anymore like a thanksgiving turkey. Poor thing must be dieing under all that padding. lol.
All in all it was worth the wait, but i am starting to feel like i am watching a soap ie: passions etc.
with all this back in forth with luke and chris.
It was nice to seem some old faces IE: mrs. kim and sebation bach (guy from band).
love them all.

Only six days left until the new episodes. I just can't wait. I have just loved working on my shawl sooo much that i cant wait to see the finished product. Now i guess i need a american idol project since that started yesterday. I have a slight addiction to that show as well.
Well i'm sure we are going to have alot to talk about next week but i'm sure you will see some new pics before than.

Ok, so pardon the way i look today. I've been sick for about two days now. This is the "gilmore girls" shawl i've been working on and i must confess, I have been working on it other than during the show. It is such a fun pattern and i just can't put it down.

I have a aunt how goes to a local auction house about two times a month. I told her a while back to keep an eye out for knitting supplies for me. Well, it all paid off this weekend. They had some left overs from an estate sale and i was luckey that the former owner had good taste in yarn. I have not counted them all yet but what i have found so far is amazing. When my aunt called me she told me they had two suit cases full of yarn, one small and one large. I told her to go around ten bucks. She ended up going 25 but it was worth is. She also got a knit stand that was filled with needles, patterns, and a set of boye interchangeable needles (part of seen above) and all the pieces were still there. The really good yarn i have found is several hanks of 100% wool all of the same lot #, 3 balls of yellow 100% mohair, 1 skien of 100% virgin wool, and about 10 small skiens of "sears" (yes sears) 100% wool yarn, this stuff from sears is like a mini skien, it doesn't even have yardage listed. It does say on the back that it is recommended by Lois holmes of california (not sure who that is yet, but i'll do some research). Oh and the mohair is from Lazarus, I found a receipt in the bag for that. She bought 8 balls of 100% mohair from them and with tax paid 12.38. I'm sure a hefty sum at the time but really makes me wish she would of bought more of it.
Well sorry i haven't writen much this weekend, but on a personal note, my sons paternal great grandfather passed away thursday and now micah's (my son) had bronchitis and i'm trying to make sure micah stays healthy enough for the funeral on tuesday.
On the gilmore front, I decided with the funeral and (sounds heartless) the OSU game on tuesday i will not be able to watch GG. Since it will be a repeat anyways i poped in my box set and watched a old show to do my knitting by. I have to say i love the way the shawl is working up, simple yet looks like your a pro when you look at it. I decided to do it in a 100% wool called "melody" from jojoland yarn. It is a wonderful orange and green blend. I should get some pics of my progress posted this week.
On last thing. I was in a swap this year for christmas and loved it. I also saw several coffee, chocolate and tea swaps having to do w/ knitting. I thought it would be fun and in true GG style to do one next christmas or for our birthday's but having to do with either junk food or coffee since lore and rory survive mainly on the two of those. Please give me a comment or a email and let me know what you guys think,
Tell me either, christmas or our birthday's
coffee or junk food (ie: poptarts, malamars, sweet tarts, licorice, cheetos, etc.)
my email is email@example.com and please subject it gilmore girls kal I have a bad habit of delateing things from folks i dont know. lol.
