Here's a scan of the yarn I got for the drawing winnings. Thank you so much. I love love love it. I can't wait to give it a run. Thank you so much. Oh, I love yarn.

Got my Prize-----Thank You

I got my prize from the Tour de France random drawing, Thank You. I wanted to see how Maizy would work in socks. I also picked out a solid color so that a pattern would stand out.

Fingerless Mittens

It was a pretty quick knit... this pair of Fingerless mittens. Have experimented with a pattern, but it disappeared into the colours of this yarn. Might do it again with a solid yarn, but for now I am content with how they turned out.

Yarn used: Maizy, in the colourway Retro. 1 ball was used.

yeah, done

Here are the finished pics of the Palindrome scarf (on Ravelry) for August. Over 312 yds of one skein and 1/3 of another. I had to make it longer. Now to play until the mystery sock starts! My hubby had to take the picture. I could not get far enough away to take the picture ( I am vertically challenged only 5'4"!) Have a great weekend!
