Slow Project Progress and Super Lucky Lately

I know it's only been a few days since my last post but am trying to get on here more often.  

My "Kick in the Butt" socks have seen a bit of knit time.  The first one is finished and it's twin has completed ribbing.  The Vanilla socks saw no love the last few days.  I've been knitting on my Ziggy Cowl.  I love the way my handspun is feeling.  It's a bit thicker than the pattern called for, so I cast on an extra 10 stitches to make it a tiny bit looser.  

I'm still working on getting the third braid of "Tuscany" spun up.  I'm going to ply the whole twelve ounces at one time.  My next fiber is staring at me from on top of the table where it's safe from Isabella kitty.  Of course, it's in a plastic bag, too.

As previously posted, I won a project bag and stitch markers last Monday.  Well, on Tuesday, while listening to another of my favorite podcasts, I heard my name called again.  This time it was for my sweater spin project.  The prize was a $25 gift certificate from Etsy.  Woot!  Woot!  I'm saving it until something really begs to come live with me and my stashes.  

I was feeling very lucky.  On Wednesday, I had my husband pick me up two Powerball Quick Pick tickets.  I specifically told him to use MY $4 to buy mine on a separate slip.  He goofed it up.  He bought them with his money instead when he got his. Not a single number was right.  My lucky streak is over. :(  

Wednesday night was my knitting guild meeting in which we had a huge Show & Tell.  Everyone brought three items to show.  I brought one scarf, two shawls- "Wine Tasting" Cashmere Scarf,
 "Flamboyan" Shawl, and "Evenstar" Shawl.
