What's in the Box?

My door bell rang, the furbabies started barking something fierce. I go to the door and I'm greeted by this huge box.

I bring it in, open it up and much to my delight I see this:

It's some "raw" afghans! I'll be putting these afghans together for my good friend. Deadline is before Christmas so I do believe I'll make it.

That's all for now, I just wanted to let you see the ginormous pile of yarn that found its way to my house.


Another Contest to Win Yarn!

Picture from here

You can win 10 Skeins of Pickles Thin Organic Cotton Yarn by going to this page and putting in your entry. Sounds like a super prize to me! You get an entry for blogging about it and there are a few other opportunities for extra entries. I've never heard of this yarn before so it would be interesting to check it out. Good luck, I hope one of us wins!

Summer Hat Made

Needed a quick sense of accomplishment so I made a summer hat. I love this pattern. It was easy to work up. The only thing I wish was different about the pattern is that it had a gauge posted. I crochet rather loosely so this did turn out a tad bit big. That's okay, because I'm sure there will be a little shrinkage when it gets washed. I used I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby.

Here's a link for the free pattern.

Thanks for stopping in...
