By default*, the lovely Marie of Sel & Poivre is the winner of the drawing!  I am actually really happy about this because she recently mentioned my blog in the Beautiful Blog Award meme.   Marie, send me an e-mail with your address and I will send along the pattern for the Siena hat!  🙂  I’ve had two drawings on my blog and, for some reason, even though I get a lot of viewers/hits on these posts, barely anyone enters — why is that?!!?  My drawings must be duds…

In other news, I am in the process of making this amazing scarf:

Cedar by Isager

Same scarf, different colorway

I saw this scarf made up in person by a friend.  It was soft and gorgeous.  I had to make it!  My colors are similar to the first photo — off-white, light green & dark green.  The yarn is much pricier than I’m used to spending but having seen a completed version, I know it’ll be worth it.  Luxury!

Finally, I am pleased to report that the school auction is over and was a huge success.  I honestly was not mentally prepared for the amount of work it would entail — but it was worth every minute.  I learned a lot and had fun — and we raised money for worthy scholarships.  Yea!
