I’m a winner!!

Ok, this never happens to me. I play a scratch ticket every so often and I lose. I enter raffles and I never win. I enter contests only to never hear back from anyone congratulating me. But THIS time, this time I WON!

One of my very favorite yarn makers had a contest to win a skein of her special new laceweight yarn, and I entered….twice. Once on her blog and once on her Ravelry page. And people, I WON! (Well, she picked 2 winners, and I was one of them.)

The yarn is from Light Brown Hare and the colorway is After Dark. And that’s exactly the perfect name for it, as looks like a hundred colors mixed together and viewed at night. The picture does not do it justice. And it’s so soft! 52% kid mohair and 48% superfine merino. It’s about 450 yards….maybe a cowl? Socks? It has to be something special. If you’re interested in seeing some gorgeous yarn, visit her Etsy shop…. ….I now have 4 skeins of her yarn and they’re some of my favorite skeins. I made my Batik shawl with one of her skeins.

Maybe it’s time I go buy another scratch ticket.


Chart 2 is done. I’m starting row 61. This is fun.

A super secret

A Super Secret Project has been started! I started it today and already finished Chart one of 6 charts. All I will say right now is that I am loving the yarn I picked for it. It’s 85% Merino Superwash Wool and 15% Mulberry Silk. So soft with a slight sheen. How, oh HOW will I keep myself from posting pictures?? Sigh….I’ll just have to post other pictures when I talk about it. Like this one.
