An ebook!

Before Christmas, when I was supposed to be doing a million other things, I got obsessed with a specific stitch pattern from one of my stitch dictionaries, and well, I wrote an ebook about it. The stitch pattern is called "triple gull stitch", so naturally, I named the ebook "A Flock of Seagulls." Seemed to make sense.

There are three patterns: a ski hat, a bonnet, and a pair of mittens. I named them each the word "seagull" in another language. 

Faoilean Ski Hat: seagull in Irish
Gwylan Bonnet: seagull in Javanese (an Indonesian language)
Mouette Mittens: seagull in French.

I was totally proud of myself because I designed these three things from yarn I had in my stash. That's a goal of this year: use up some of the stash yarn, because moving it across the country was a real pain. 

Want to win a copy of the ebook? Leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner on Friday, January 24th.
