Ode to Mason-Dixon Knitting

I just can’t wait.  Is it Christmas morning?  No, better than that!  It’s just 2 days until the Mason-Dixon Knit-Along starts on February 1st!  Party!  See, it’s hard to explain but events just make me so motivated and happy.  Goals…that’s it.  Everyone needs goals.  I just mean more yarn and projects really.

A week or so ago I stumbled across a post on Facebook from Mason-Dixon Knitting for a yarn give-away for a beautiful cowl kit of many colors.  So up my alley.  Many colors.  Shiver.

I went on and entered that give-away.  I don’t think I won though.  Or did I??  haha  Positive spin.  I started following M-D’s page and I remembered why I enjoy reading all that they can give me.  They’re just so funny.  And they know so much technical stuff.  Win-win.

Have you read their books?  Meet Kay and Ann:

I just spent the afternoon going through my books that I’ve had since my mother-in-law told me about their Warsh rags and swiffer mop covers.

When I open up the first book I just feel like I’m chatting with good friends.  I challenge you to make it a couple of pages without busting into a broad smile.  Or snorting.  They write like they talk and it’s a good way to read.

The first book will guide a beginner knitter and cradle them as they explore their way through fiber-ty.  The second one gets into the knitty gritty and challenges the knitter to grow and become their own knitter-self.  Plus the favorite Warsh rag carries over to the second.

The funniest page I’ve ever read was in the first book -page 90-The places they have tried to knit and failed.  I can’t say more.  You have to read it yourself.

The pages of both books are crammed to the rim with info.  Treasures.  I need to go lay down now and just reboot as my brain wants me to go and get some cotton and get to making some warsh rags and the fancy powder room gifts.  Must make gifts for the ladies.

Also I need to think about my Stopover sweater for Monday with the Knit Along.  I wish I could knit faster!!

Go and visit their website:

Get in there and I bet you’ll have some warsh rags before long, too.

Knitalong impatience-ly yours,
