Let's get to the exciting part first: who won the Think Summer Give-Away? The random number generator (also known as my dear daughter) chose number 7, which would be Gracie Saylor! Congratulations! If you can send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll get your package into the mail!
Instead of indulging myself in casting on yesterday, I pulled this out of my closet:
Brickless scarf that I started last year with Miss Babs Yowsa. Isn't the color gorgeous? I don't know why I dropped the ball on this, so to speak. It is a great pattern -- and a useful one for Wisconsin weather!
Miss Babbs doesn't call this yarn Yowsa for nothing. In addition to being beautiful, it comes with an enormous yardage: 560 yards of worsted weight. Has anyone make a Brickless out of Yowza? If so, did you use the entire skein? I'm afraid I could end up with a scarf that is too long -- if there is such a thing.
It's back to school on Wednesday, so I'm savoring these last few days!
