Or, The Stash Closet Runneth Over!
As a result of joining a new lace list, Summer of Lace, and an obsessive quest for yarn to knit Lucy's Diamonds scarf, I have gone on a ridiculous shopping spree.
And then I found Robin.
Lucy's Diamonds & Faina's Scarf in alpaca sport weight. These hanks look almost the same...I am hoping the real yarn is darker in the 2nd picture.
And then the Ultimate Lace Experience!
I visited Sharon and Mike's Heirloom Knitting .
Here is what I discovered!
Her Name is MELANIE If you click on the link, you too can have a Melanie! Check out the colors of 2 ply yarn that are offered on the Heirloom site.
THE MELANIE GUESSING GAME
I couldn't decide on an color - and Sharon picked one for me. My choices were, Turquoise, Dark Blue or Violet.
Anyone care to guess what it will be? It will be a surprise to me as well. I am so excited! I rarely get a surprise.
I decided to make this a fun, GUESSING GAME!
Here is how it will work. Guess what color yarn will be in the package that Mike Miller mailed to me Friday, June 17 from the UK. Send me in your choice of the 3 colors I listed, TURQUOISE, DARK BLUE OR VIOLET - via your blog comments...
I will write each color choice on the front and your name, printed on the inside of folded, identical pieces of paper.
Since you have a 1 in 3 chance of wining, there will be duplicates...thus, everyone who guess the right color goes into the draw. When the yarn arrives, (about 2 weeks), I will have Vader and Dennis draw a name. There will be a small gift sent to the winner.

The Melanie Pattern arrived but the yarn has NOT arrived. Still time to take a guess!
