I feel like this week has gone by so fast. I am in the middle of training for Boston's Run to Remember, but only on week three of training for the Team Challenge half marathon. As of this morning, I have run almost 14 miles this week and I still have the long run on Sunday!
I don't feel like I have really done much this week other than run. I know it isn't true, because I am almost done the first of the two shrugs I'm making for the chocolate lady and have finally decided to finish the second sock (I'm working on a second pair of monkey socks). I don't have to run on Saturday, so I am going to use the time to get some knitting done and send out my charity letters.
But onto this week's prizes!
First we have two skeins of HandPaintedYarn's lace weight (each a separate prize) in Royal Purple. Each skein is 850 yards and has been wound into a center pull ball. I'm making the Swiss Cheese scarf out of a skein of this yarn in a different colorway, and it is really fun to work with.
The second is a skein of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in bright lime green. One skein is enough to make a pair of socks for most patterns! The yarn is even brighter in person than in the picture.
