I finally finished the contest prize that Noel won. She had said to make anything. So... it took me a little while to figure out what to make and what yarn to use.
I had picked up this fiber last May at the MA sheep and wool I believe.
...and then over the summer I had spun it into this yarn.
Then it was just sitting in my yarn bucket, waiting for its turn to be made into something - it is now a scarf:
...and it now belongs to Noel.
...stay tuned for the next contest (not immediately, but soon... ish)
