The yarn for my block came from the 2011 Knit In at The Mannings. I won a skein of discontinued Noro Aurora yarn for being the knitter who came the farthest to the party. This is an interesting yarn, as it is Noro but with a sparkly yarn plied along. Every now and then the metallic yarn is bunched up in the twist, so that it almost looks like a bead on the yarn. Since I only had one skein, I wasn't quite sure what to do with it until the pin-up show came along.

For those of you in the area, the show is at the SEFAA Center, 1705 Commerce Dr. NW, Atlanta GA 30318. It will be on view for the remainder of March. The center is open on Tuesdays from 10 AM to 2 PM, on Wednesdays from 5 to 8 PM, and on Sundays this month from 2 to 4 PM (except 11 March, when the center will be closed). There are about 40 squares in a wide variety of techniques. If you are looking for inspiration, it is well worth taking some time to check it out. There is also hope that this will be an annual event. So, if you have an idea for a square-foot fiber experiment, be sure to make it happen in time for next year!
