Sheep & Golf & Moulin Rouge

I've just returned from the beautiful state of Wisconsin, where my husband and I went for a quick empty nesters' celebratory getaway. Did you know they have sheep on their golf courses in Wisconsin? Well they do. At least on two that I know of. This adorable guy continued to munch on the fairway as I hit my ball from no more than ten feet away. The sheep were an excellent distraction from the poor quality of my golf game. On top of having sheep on their golf courses the quality of Wisconsin's cheese is well known. This is my kind of state.

The contest to win a Mudra Cuff Kit from Laura Nelkin's Adorn Anew ended while I was away. I used a random number generator to select a winner and the winner is: Stacey! Congratulations Stacey!!

Moulin Rouge 3
In other news I've got another pattern announcement. Moulin Rouge was originally designed for the Tempted Yarns Club, and until now was exclusive to them. As of today it is available to everyone.

Moulin Rouge 2

This sweet shawl starts with a easy to memorize lace border and then moves into a simple eyelet body that is shaped with short rows. I used one skein of Tempted Hand Painted Lovely Grrl for the design. The blend of silk and merino combined with a lovely twist creates a soft squishy yarn that is a dream to work with.

Oh my gosh! You were in Wisconsin and then you picked me, from Wisconsin to win the Mudra?! That is WI karma:) thank you so much, I am positively thrilled, I have been coveting this cuff for sometime after making two of Laura"s Ribbands. Happy dance for me! Thanks again!

So glad you got a "getaway" to commemorate this next phase in your life! Sheep on a golf course are definitely a great omen for your future! And I LOVE Moulin Rouge! Really, we need more than two hands : )!
