WOW. that's all i can say. thank you all for coming by to visit me. and for all the nice comments about the scarf. the winning number was 129, allison, congrats!

for anyone who would like to try making your own, here's the details. i used two red heart yarns, mistelle (in mint) and symphony(in magenta) and size 11 needles. the stitch couldn't be simpler. cast on 12, or 15 if you'd like it wider. then k1, yo, k2tog. repeat. that's it. over and over and over until it's the length you want. and then bind off in knit. weave in ends. yay! a new, soft and squishy scarf! i've also made this in wool, which looks more rustic. here's another example. and the yarns i used - well, they came from my gigantic stash, and i know for a fact the symphony has been discontinued. but i think you could substitute about anything you want.

i had so much fun yesterday checking out all the giveaways. there were some fantastic prizes out there! thanks to sewmamasew for setting it up and for just being cool.

Your blog is really neat! Seems like you are interested in a lot of the same stuff I, crafts, and family! Sorry I didn't get around to commenting sooner, I have been ill for the past few days and it's been on my to-do list.
