Contest? Did Someone Say Contest?
First things first, if you love predicting the future and/or winning yarn pop over to Ma's and enter her NBaT contest. Simply guess when you think her T will be completed -- sorry nona's already taken July 4th -- and if you're the closest guess to the actually finishing date you'll win a prize from her stash. Although Ma's NBaT was recently attached to a ball winder, she's made an impressive comeback and is once again off and running!
In other NBaT news...
Emily finished her T-shirt. She came up with a simple, elegant way to pick up stitches for a contrasting color neckband -- first pick up the stitches in the main color and then switch to the contrasting color before working the first row. Be sure to check out her pictures and read the other modifications she made to the pattern!
Janine -- poor Janine -- had trouble with scissors while trying to make a small change to her finished neckline. Because of her mishap, her NBaT is unsewn and her front is ripped back below the neckline. Please go visit and give her some moral support!
Alana is planning on working some border embroidery instead of making a ringer T -- what a creative idea!
Cathy is oh-so-close to finishing her T. Her neckline turned out beautifully and she's in the seaming groove.
Annamarie is our newest knit alonger. Please pop over and say hi!
Sockapal-2-za is starting in a few days -- June 15th to be exact. I feel like a kid waiting for Santa to arrive -- overly excited to find out who my new pal is and what kind of socks she likes. Alison has over 350 knitters participating in this sock exchange -- let the games begin!
And finally a few pictures showing nona in action on World Wide Knit in Public day. If you have a picture of yourself knitting in public on KIP day, be sure to enter Kathy's KIP photo contest!
Nona in line at Sees!? What a great idea. I'm anxiously awaiting to hear from Alison, too!

Oh Nona...I'm on the home stretch with just the sleeves to go! I'm also signed up for Sockapal2za and can't wait to get started on the socks! ;)
