Today I’m feeling like sharing a skein of Cotolana with someone. I’m putting together a kit with one skein of Cotolana and the Clafoutis headband pattern, and will select one lucky winner. Simply comment with which color you’d like to win. You can see the colors here. You have until midnight tonight.

    Birch please, especially if it goes with my coat. Interesting stitch on the headband – can’t wait to try it. Loved working with this on my leaf scarf.
