finally!

here it is! the fabulous giveaway prize!

a handknit scarf, made by me, it's super snuggly and soft. it's a combo of two soft acrylic yarns, which means that it can be washed (that's a bonus for us moms, who can't wear anything for five minutes without a little wiping something on it)

in my three minute "photo shoot" this morning, i attempted to get a great shot of me wearing the scarf. so my camera was perched upon the step stool, which sat on top of the high chair. and i got two pictures before the kids found me.

hope you can tell what it looks like, hope you like the colors (pale blue and raspberry), hope you'll come back tomorrow and leave me a comment for a chance to win!

I LOVE it. And I hear you about the value of being able to wash something. I have some sort of food item on my shirt right now, courtesy of my 4-year-old.

The colours are just right! I'd hate you to lose it, since it looks very cool on you, but if you're sure, I'll post you a pic of myself waering it!
