Got some awesome packages in the mail yesterday!
The first one is from Holly. She had this wonderful contest on her blog...I entered a few times and I won. It's a beautiful, weighted spindle; an awesome book I can't wait to read, and a bunch of roving...beautiful rovings to work with. Yes, I've already started spinning with it and it works fabulous. After I finish this post gonna go spin some more!:)
Charity Knitting Contest/Project: AKA "Operation Chemocap", objective to knit/crochet hats for patients at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. Yarn: anything machine washable Sizes: from Child to adult Contest: knit one hat (no infant, just child and/or adult) and submit by March 12, 2009 There will be 4 winners (maybe more if I get some yarn donated). What's up for grabs: 1 skein malabrigo lace, 1 ball Treking XXL, 2 balls Rowan Kidsilk haze, and deluxe set of stitch markers from The Velvet Hippo

I sent her twelve hats and was one of the four winners...I received this yummy, lace weight malabrigo in forest green. Love this yarn and it works up wonderfully. Have to find a real pretty scarf to make with it. Awesome color too!
