Time for a Giveaway!

Posting again, Jade?! So SOON?!

Why yes, amazing, isn't it?

But why?

Because I have something that I just can't wait to show off--and give away!

I have been toying with the idea of crocheting some beaded scarves/sashes to sell on Etsy for a while now. Those of you who follow The Raspberry Rabbits may have seen the scarf/sash I made for Michelle, and if you click on the link at the right of the page for my crochet project pics on Facebook, you can see another one that I made (the recipient of which will be unnamed because it is a gift not yet given). The response was so positive that I decided to give it a shot, so I went out and found some lovely yarn and beads and set to work on one as a prototype.

Here is the result:

(sorry, bunny not included)
(closeup of detail)

Color: white w/silver-lined glass beads (inspired by Michelle May, who loves her white :) )
Yarn: Baby Bunny (what else?) by Plymouth Yarn--60% Pima Cotton, 30% Modal, 10% Angora
Beads: 0/6 seed beads, clear w/silver lining
Care: Hand wash, dry flat
Length: approx. 40"
Width: approx. 3"

This is a very versatile item; it can be worn straight, knotted or wrapped as a scarf, or tied around the waist as a sash or belt.

The ones I plan on making for sale will be slightly thinner, so I have decided to give this one away to one of my loyal readers/followers.

Giveaway details:
1. The drawing will be on January 31st.
2. If you want to be entered, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. If you are a follower of this blog, you will get an automatic second entry.

I'm so very happy with how this scarf turned out, so I really hope whoever wins it will be just as happy with it. Good luck to all! :)

Postin Mah Comment! Like it, but would like it better if the real bunny were draped in it.

Duncan: You Iz Entered! Would have loved to use Mr. Mick as my model, but that pretty scarf would have ended up coated with fur.
