We’ve still got a few salient matters to discuss for the #fringeandfriendsknitalong — this whole thing has gotten more in-depth than I imagined! — but nevertheless, today is the last of the WIP of the Week prizes. This one is going to Tracey Alice Cox, aka traceyalice on Ravelry and @knittertraceyalice on Instagram. Tracey is knitting an Alice Starmore pattern called Na Craga, and has posted a slew of the most beautifully lit photos, week after week since this all began. She’s also making a slew of interesting mods — turning the boxy, late-’90s, drop-shouldered men’s pullover into a saddle-shoulder cardigan for herself, by way of a steek. I can’t wait to see the transformation!
And what has Tracey won? Well, Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist — the yarn at the center of my personal peak knitting experience — got even better this week, when it was released in softly heathered colors. It’s called Worsted Twist Heather, and Tracey has won 10 skeins!
Congratulations to Tracey on the win, and to Purl Soho on the release. And thanks again to all of our generous prize donors: Purl Soho, Tolt Yarn and Wool, Tonofwool, Fancy Tiger Crafts, Kelbourne Woolens and, of course, Fringe Supply Co. This may be the end of the weekly prizes, but I’ll be continuing to spotlight the incredible garments that are coming out of this knitalong, as I continue to be blown away by you all.

— Don’t forget I’ll have a booth tomorrow at Fiber in the ’Boro, in Murfreesboro TN. I’m hoping to see some of you there!
— It’s official: I’ll be at Tolt Yarn and Wool’s Stitch Night on Thursday Nov 13, in Carnation WA, from 6-8. Come knit with us and ask me whatever you want and check out Anna’s amazing store.
— There are some very sweet new buttons at Fringe Supply Co today, and I’m happy to report than the beloved little red row counter is back in stock! As are a few sizes/colors of the narrow-rim buttons and the concave horn buttons. So pretty! If the size or finish you’re wanting in these latter two buttons is out of stock, never fear — there are more being made just for us!
Have a wonderful weekend, everybody—
