I Won! I Won!


Look what I won from The Knitting Hutch! I signed up for Jackie's email newsletter, and I am the amazed winner of the Spring 2007 Drawing. This wonderful skein of Sea Silk yarn arrived at my house yesterday.
Those who know me are probably astonished that I chose this color. I almost opted for the Straw, but since my Pi Shawl is tan, I decided to go for something darker.
I think I can get a rectangular lace scarf/shawl out of the 437 yards in this skein. I plan to use larger needles and keep it narrow, about 10 - 12 inches wide. I've been looking through "Victorian Lace Today", and like the scarf on p. 90, but that is not my final decision. I have 2 books with shawl patterns coming from the library; this is only time I enjoy 'window shopping'.
