My First Give Away

Sunday is my birthday.  So in honor of my birthday I thought I might try my very first give away ever.   There are no rules, just leave a comment between now and Sunday and you are entered.  That is if you are interested.  You don't have to sign up to follow me, although I would love to have you.  You don't have to tell me I am amazing or even Happy Birthday.  Just leave me a comment between now and late July 3 and we are good to go.  If you would like to spread the word that's great, if not there is more chance for you to win.

I would like to give away this.

 This lovely ( I hope) scarf has just been removed from my loom.  It is approximately 5 inches wide, and 70 inches long.  It is made from Universal Yarn Classic Shades, in the color Watermelon.  It is acrylic and wool and says it is machine washable but I wouldn't advise washing weaving in a  machine.  A lovely hand wash soak, place flat for drying, and there you go.
Weaving is very light weight, not like crochet or knitting.  This scarf took about 190 yards of yarn, a knitted scarf of this length would take twice that much and would be very heavy.  This baby is soft and lovely when wrapped around your neck.
 
I have also collected a few tid bits from the yarn store that I will be including in the give-away.  If you don't knit or crochet don't worry give them to a friend who does.  If you don't want them at all let me know and I will save them for give-away number 2, sometime in the future.

My finished project number 32 may just be for you!

Happy birthday for Sunday! How lovely to share some presents! Weaving always amazes me with how light and drapey it is, because that somehow doesn't translate into photos. I love the diagonal lines in this piece.
