Oh My, Look At This

This is a spectacular gift package from Only Ewe and Cotton Too in Alpharetta.  It includes 4 hanks of the beautiful Mimi mink fiber and the pattern for this More Than Knotz Cowl.  The pattern uses three hanks but Elyse has thrown in a fourth for you to play with and use for something else.  With 330 yards per hank, you can do a lot with this extra.  Mimi is a luxurious fiber that is self-indulgent and decadent.  This prize is worth over $100.00.  Shop Hop starts this weekend so get yourself all ready to go.
