So now the contest - something to just occupy us waiting for this amazing yarn to arrive. How many total skeins of Briar Rose have I ordered? I want to know your guess for the total number of skeins of all three yarns. Leave your answer in the comments section! The contest is over on May 16 at 12 noon Eastern Standard Time. The closest guess will win - if there is more than one correct then there will be a draw for the winner. So what do you win? Well, a FREE skein of Briar Rose Sea Pearl of course!
Thanks to Janet from Houston (I don't think she has a blog) for drawing my attention to the Merino Lace Socks (by Anne Woodbury) from Favorite Socks. Here they are started in Shelridge Farm Green Apple - great stitch definition and super soft yarn!

Ok time to make your guess! :)
