Mabelle’s first skein:

First Yarn with Maybelle!

166 yards two-ply DK weight – I’m not sure what kind of wool this is.  When I purchased it at the Fibertwist, I asked the vendor what kind of wool it was and she said, “wool”.  I didn’t want to ask further…  It’s a little scratchy and probably good for mittens or slippers.  I thought ‘felting’ for a second and then realized I was talking about my handspun and decided that wouldn’t be happening with this skein.  ;op

So that’s the yarn, now I need to ask a favor!

You all know that R loves old cars.  In fact, he belongs to a car club (he’s the secretary!), goes to meetings and Does Good Things with said car club.  They give out scholarships to kids who want to learn how to work on cars and try to do a little something for members of the community who are going through a rough time.  What does that have to do with anything?  Well, I’ll tell you!  A local bank is giving away a $5,000 grant to a non-profit who gets the most votes on their website before January 31.  What I’m asking is that you follow this link, click VOTE HERE and fill in the form.  I’m sorry it’s not just a ‘click here’ thing, there’s a bit of typing but I think you guys can handle it.  ;o)

The info you need for the form is this:

Name of the Organization:  Olde Yankee Street Rods

Address:  Sheffield, MA

Submitted by:

They ask for your name, email and address however you can do your first name and last initial, your email and the city, state you live in.  They are not using this information to sell you stuff, just to keep track of who is voting.

What do you get?  An entry into my little contest!!  Enter R’s car club to win, comment here that you did and I’ll put your name in the hat to win a skein of…


(contest closes on January 31 at midnight, drawing announcement on February 2) Even better?  If you post a link to my contest from your blog and either trackback to this post or let me know in the comments I’ll enter you AGAIN!

So, let’s get this car club a grant and show those car guys that fiber people are AWESOME!  ;o)  Thank you!
