New Threads Friday, December 19, 2008

Since I lost my other funky monkey chunky cap, it was time to make a new one. Out of the stash, some Rowan Big Wool in a subtle charcoal grey which whipped up into an H2O hat in no time (made while reading the New York Times online — one must keep up with one’s event horizons!)

Just in time too, it’s been storming outside for hours and not only is it cold, they are telling us we are going to have Thunder Snow!

I’ve been carrying a polar fleece headband in my pocket and if it gets too extreme on my earsies, I pop that on and then put this big boy over it. Then, if Old Man Winter is still giving me the finger, up goes the down hood.

The Big Wool has that single ply goodness: it is so fleece-like and lofty, it holds the warm air emanating from one’s head and returns the favor ;p

I pulled out a few other skeins of yarn that have this insulating (and pretty) quailty and they are the new Freebie Friday 4: a Triple Play!

Why? Because I love your earsies too!

Three freebie recipients will be pulled out of the mailbox on Tuesday, December 23, each one getting one type of yarn shown. First drawn, first choice, second drawn, second choice.

The Yarns are: Colinette Pt. 5 (color 145 frangipani); Rowan Biggie Print (252 ); & Gedifra Peruana (color 1645).

Freebie Friday Triple Play
Send an email HERE. freebiefriday4 must be in the subject line …

It will automatically be stashed into a Freebie Friday Folder and the new owners will be chosen by random drawing on Tuesday, December 23rd.

Happy Friday!!
