Giveaway

The weaving-in of ends takes a lot longer than the actual knitting! One Ivy League Reunion hobo glove is finished (woohoo), and I thought we could have some fun with the other.

Take a close look. I carried yarns (ie didn't cut them) if they reappeared within 4 rows. Comment with your best guess as to the number of ends per glove, including the cast-on/off ends. Whoever is closest, without going over, will win a gently-used (and unmarked) copy of Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter


The only project I knit from this was a Harry Potter (actually, Ron) sweater for my niece, but there are many other patterns which will be an absolute blast to knit for the upcoming final movie premiere!

ps: if you are not logged into google/blogger, please put your ravelry name or email in the text box, because your email doesn't come through to me

pss: entries will close in one week,  on Thurs June 16th, at 21:00 central time (US).

Nice gloves! I'm afraid I don't have the patience to do color work.

I'm opting out of the giveaway because I already have that book on my bookshelf. I like the hat patterns for kids.
