As I mentioned yesterday, the year anniversary came and went… so this is a belated blogiversary bash of sorts. My first post; about the over large stash and critters in a bag of yarn from the goodwill. I am still attempting to stashbust. At least it is better organized and mostly in cedar bins. So…. a little contest!
Three prizes. One (let’s say the shakespeare) goes to the person who most closely guesses the number of comments I’ve had from the beginning of blogging (which was September 16, 2006, over on my livejournal account) until the end of the contest (it’ll be a surprise for me too). The other two go to random entries. Contest ends 5 pm EST, Sunday September 30.
That’s enough to make a woman’s pair of mittens…and I’m sure lots of other items. Felts easily. Worsted, 135 yards, 100% wool, includes a scarf pattern on the label.
I saw this felted up when I bought it at Colonial Yarns in PA. Looked like it felted very nicely. Chunky, 120 yards, 100% wool.
I’ll put in enough to make an adult hat or small bag. It’ll be wool, maybe some silk, mostly worsted, and in colors that at least don’t scream horrible things when they are near each other.
Enjoy the weekend!
