Junebug Days!

Jen over at Figknits knows how to celebrate her birthday. She celebrates all month and holds blog contests each week.

Now, clearly, we should be giving her presents instead of the other way around, but she's nice like that.

I won week two! I had a $16 credit to spend in her pattern store.

It was a difficult choice, but these are the three patterns I chose:

Merripog socks

I'm imagining them in gray and pink. Then again, I imagine most knitting in gray and pink.


I bet this would be good in a solid, semisolid, and maybe even a variegated yarn. Yay!


I was very tempted to buy Sean, 'cause it's adorable. Since I don't have babies, I refrained. But seriously, CUTE. A shawl collar and a giant pom pom? Count me in.


All of those images are Jen's.

While I was looking through her patterns, I found the Global Cable Coat. I'd forgotten that pattern was hers. It's been in my Favorites since I first saw it.

Thanks, Jen! I hope the rest of your birthday month is full of fun and pancakes... or whatever your version of pancakes is!


  1. OH OH OH>>> I'm looking forward to the Merripog socks. They are "new" to me, and therefore, coveted!! I love birthdays...

  2. Her sweater, Ian ( has loooooooooooong been on my list of "things I would knit for a man in my life but only if he totally deserved it". Love her patterns!
