      • I talk about the selections I’m planning to make for the Magnolia Society Sweater Club
      • A contest! I wanted to do something fun to say thank you to everyone for listening to the podcast, and for all the lovely feedback. SO, I thought of a fun idea for a contest! Here are the details:

Please post in this thread your favorite yarn color (bonus points if you include an inspiration photo!)

Rules: You must be a member of this Ravely group 
Restricted to US Addresses only (sorry! as I get more organized, I’ll look to do things that are more inclusive, but for this first one, I want to make sure I don’t end up spending a fortune in postage)

Dates -- August 1, 2015 through 11:59 pm MST on September 15, 2015

I’ll use a random number generator to select a winner. THEN, I’ll take that person’s post, and dye a skein of MCN Worsted yarn in the favorite color listed in your post!

I can’t wait to see everyone’s posts! Thank you again for listening!
