Thanks to everyone who entered our giveaway. The winner (drawn at random) is PharmaMom who said:
My favorite red used to be a deep dark red, but now with little ones in the house I've been loving fire engine or cherry red! Bright, bright, bright and happy!
Sounds good and congratulations!
We loved reading everyone's answers (including the fantastically enigmatic "I like pickle"). 'Our favourite reds: Fire-engine and Campbell's Tomato Soup with Radish and Popsicle in hot pursuit.
Orange Pom-pom by Kathy Slade. It is 58 inches in diameter! If you ever come across this at a gallery, you will just have to control yourself and not run over and give it a squeeze.
Thanks to everyone who entered our yarn giveaway. We'll be drawing a name and announcing our winner later today (Friday).

We're having a little giveaway this month, for anyone looking for a light, little, portable summer project: 1 ball of organically grown, Blue Sky Worsted Cotton in "Tomato" red, enough to make 1 Windy's Spring Scarf. We are not sponsored by Blue Sky, we chose it because it is soft, squishy and knits really nicely. It is also nice to knit with in warmer weather.

We've made the first of our series of children's scarf patterns. This one is a light, cotton scarf (unisex), inspired by Windy's red scarf. It is very simple and quick to knit and a great first project for anyone wanting to try knitting for the first time. It's also a nice project to knit over the summer and wear in September. Our pattern also has a cozier muffler-length version for winter.
Here it is: Windy's Spring Scarf. If you are a member of ravelry, you can find it there, too. This is a free pattern.
