A giveaway!

It's still a bit early for a 6-year-2-month blogiversary celebration, and it's the end of August, so who knows if anyone is even out there reading, but, the time has come for me to part with this reddish brownish lace-weight wool/mohair yarn, so I will have a contest!

Is it red or brown, or chestnut?

This came to me in a swap, and I was delighted and have admired it for 2 years now (!) but, since it is 80% mohair and 20% wool, it would make me sneeze like anything, and I know I am never going to knit with it. It is 420 yards and 100 grams, so could make something really lovely!

Mohair slight fuzziness makes it always look out of focus.

All you have to do to make this your own is leave me a comment! Let's see... I'll leave this open for a week, till September 2nd, my friend Dave's birthday. Then I shall charge up the random number generator and pick a winner!

Good luck and happy knitting!
