Would you like to have this dreamy sweater's-worth of yarn for your very own FLAK sweater? Enter the contest, and all 2,610 yards of 100% wooly goodness could be yours!  Here's what to do:

1.   Make up your very own, original FLAK-ronym.  That's right; the orignial FLAK acronym stands for "Follow the Leader Aran Knitalong".  So now I'm asking you to create a new acronym that expresses your personal FLAK experience (or the one you'd like to have).

2.  Post a comment to the blog with your FLAK-ronym and its description before 12 AM on November 1, 2014.

3.  Stay tuned and I'll announce the winner shortly thereafter!

I can't wait to see what you come up with.  My readers are the cleverest beasties ever.  In the meantime, it's not too late to join me this weekend at Vogue Knitting Live in Chicago. CLICK HERE to register!  The Windy City will never be the same after this, I promise.

And if all that weren't enough: Something Slipper-y is Coming.  That's right:  I just received the first advance copy of this little number, which should be on store shelves in time for you do do some seriously fun Holiday Knitting:

  Featured slippers: "Killer Rab-Boots"

Featured slippers: "Killer Rab-Boots"

The official release date is November 15, but I have a sneaking suspicion that pre-ordered copies will arrive before that.  And these are some seriously silly slippers, if I do say so myself. Need a little something to knit for your loveable, zany friends and relatives?  Look no further than Carrot socks, Panda-face maryjanes, and real live furry MukLuks.  You knew you could count on me to bring the whimsy in time for gift-giving, no?
