Berry Lucky Winners!

Thank you all for your help with the berry naming contest! To be honest, I think you all just made it more difficult to decide :) But I definitely have a few names for future berry-inspired patterns!

The new pattern, Blackberry Brambles, is just about done! Waiting for the perfect photo shoot!


Blackberry Brambles...Coming Soon!

And our winner.....

Gaylen


But there were lots of berry bramble suggestions (but also a few patterns with similar names in ravelry, so that narrowed down my choices), so the random number generator picked a few other winners.....

Zonda
Tricia
Marilynknits


And for the original suggestion that inspired the brambles theme....


Congrats!! Email me at irishgirlieknits AT gmail DOT com and I'll get you your free copy of the pattern sometime this weekend when it is done!

Blackberries everywhere...

Have you heard of the Breakfast Project? Cupcakefaerie brought it to my attention. You can also read more about it here. Here's my attempt...partially to show you all why blackberries have been on my brain! I tossed a few into some honey wholewheat pancakes I made the other night (yes, for dessert....), but they heated up nicely for breakfast! As much as I love the idea of this project, I'm not sure how many different ways I can take a picture of my everyday breakfast...granola bar, or apple, or cheese stick, or bag of berries. Well, maybe I'll take one of the bag of berries.

I'll be back soon with Blackberry Brambles!!

Happy Berry Pickin'!

Great breakfast (or supper). Great name for the socks too :0)

Oh cute! Love the name, even though blackberry brambles are the scourge of my yard's existence. They are everywhere, and impossible to get rid of!

Hmm, maybe that means once people start knitting your pattern, they won't be able to put it down. :)

Nice! I don't think I'd be very good at the breakfast project. I have almost the same thing every day!

Congratulations to your winners!

And yummy brekkie!

PS. I saw the Siren Song test knit version somewhere. ;) Pretty, pretty!

They turned out great and I love the name.

Oh! I'm so excited and so stupid :) I just replied to your email with a big confused look on my face. That's what I get from clicking over from rav and not bookmarking. Thank you so much, I think I'll wind some lovely blackberry colored yarn and cast on a pair for me :) Thank you. g
