i won! i won!

a contest on the on my needles blog! bethieee sent me the loveliest pink roving with angelina :-) dd walked by the package and said "wow, that's really pretty", high praise from a 17 year-old!
thanks bethieee :-)

got the seaweed scarf blocked, and the fringe tied on. it blocked 14.5 in wide, and 86 in long! that's 4 inches longer than the pattern, but dd liked it long, so i left the length. knit it with size 4 brittanies, and the color is sea ivory. i found my pattern notes from my ddil's mittens unbelievable, and i also have the mittens, so i will knit a pair to go with this scarf.

i do not want to get stuck racing to get through the christmas knitting this year, so i'm trying to get a good start!

thanks for all the sock compliments, linda m, i can't find a way to thank you by email ;-)

Beautiful scarf! Looks warmer in your neck of the woods than ours right now.

I really like that "Petroglyph" colorway too - I want to see what Cathy decides to do with her.

Wow--you are winning everything! I love the scarf. Is the VY yarn soft to the skin?

lucky you! Do you know what you'll make with your 'pretty in pink' fiber? the scarf looks great too (you know, like _everything_ you knit!). ~d
