* Whip Through Your WIPs

For the rest of January and February we’re going to be focusing on wrangling our Works In Progress (WIP) into submission. You can do that in two ways. 1) You can finish the project. 2) You can unravel (aka: rip out) the project.
You may only have one post in this thread but as many projects as you like inside of that post. Just keep editing it to add projects!
Please provide a link to your Ravelry project page for this project, as well as provide a picture. We want to keep this fair for everyone!
This thread will close on February 28th and the winner will be chosen by Random Number Generator on March 1st. Mama Linda and I will be WIPing along with you, but we are not eligible for the prize, which is a beautiful cable needle from Wolfe Farms.

* Choose Joy!
As a part of Brianne’s theme of Choose Joy, we’d love for you to contribute your ideas of ways to choose joy in your life! Help inspire us with your joyful ideas. :)
The winner will receive a skein of yarn and stitch markers from TurtleMade.
You may only post once in this thread. Feel free to put as many ideas as you’d like in this one post, but do not post more than once.
You must be a part of the group to win.
The thread will be closed on February 14th and the winner will be chosen by Random Number Generator.

* Brianne is happy that Bryan was able to take off time between Christmas and New Year to be with the family.

Are You Kidding Me?!:

* Linda can't start a hat without it being a möbius. Fiber from Liz at Whirlwind Ranch.

* Brianne is not so great at spinning yet. Unless you like pigtails. Then, I'm awesome.

Gilding The Lily:

* Brianne bought 8 oz of BFL from fiberstory on Etsy. It's beautiful! She also bought a pound of BFL sale yarn from Etsy to practice on.

It's a Good Thing!:

* Brianne is glad for row counters so she can keep track of what she's supposed to be doing!!! Especially using KnitCompanion.


Winner is #19 (pnarva16) who wrote "One of my favorite traditions that we have done with our kids is that we drive to a little country church in our area and see a living nativity on Christmas Eve. On the way home, we drive through different neighborhoods looking at lights and then head home to tuck the kids into bed."

Congratulations!!! I will get in contact with you and send out your bag as soon as I get your mailing address!
