Wow! I can't believe that I've been blogging for a year (although if you ask my family, they will tell you it seems like much longer.) I don't want to get all mushy, but I feel like blogging has been such a wonderful addition to my life. Not only do I get to read and review so many terrific books, but I've made so many new friends. I absolutely love "talking" with all of you each and every day! I am in awe of how amazing the book blogger community is.
In honor of my One Year Blogiversary, I am going to do a little giveaway. This time, it's not a book! It's a crocheted scarf made by yours truly! I tried to take some pictures of the scarf, but none seem to show the details. Please know that I positively adore this scarf, and I wear one just like it all the time! Here's a picture of my daughter modeling it:
This scarf is called a potato chip scarf because of all the curlicues. I love how there is mohair in the yarn so it is nice and fuzzy (although it is a bit itchy.) The scarf is gold metallic with lots of other bright colors in it including red, pink, blue, and green -- it goes with everything! You can wear it around the collar of your coat and it will almost go to your waist, or you can fold it in half and pull the ends through. That's how my daughter is wearing it in the picture.
The yarn is called Moonlight Mohair and the color is Rainbow Falls. Here's a little picture of the yarn so you can get a better idea of the colors:
This scarf is one of the first things that I completed as part of Dewey's Knit-A-Long Challenge. I can't think of a more special way to pay tribute to Dewey than by sharing this scarf with one of you. I have been knitting and crocheting like crazy the past few weeks (often times at the expense of reading), so be on the look-out for my challenge update post with pictures (albeit lousy ones) of my other creations!
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment with your e-mail address. I will select a winner on February 7th and announce it here. Unfortunately, this contest is open to those of you with U.S. or Canada mailing addresses. Good luck!
