Good Witch of the North

I've been working on a pink blankie made of small mitered blocks and I'm on the constant look-out for sock yarns in pink, or mostly pink.  Someone told me about a group on Ravelry called Mini Mania, with a sub-group called "Think Pink Swap".  It was limited to 20 participants and I was lucky to get in just in time.

Each person is to send 20 mini-skeins of 5 grams each to the organizer.  The yarn must be from an indy dyer, not mass-produced brands and must be pink tonals or semi-solids, not variegated.  Once all are sent in they will be packaged up and we'll receive our swap yarns.  I'm looking forward to seeing what is coming. Pink comes in so many shades from pale to fluorescent.

My yarn contribution is called "Good Witch of the North".  While it's not true, I like to think that it was named after me!  It's from one of my favorite dyers, The Copper Corgi, from Savannah, GA.  I'm putting them in the mail today.

In my blankie I'm using all kinds of pink yarns, incuding variegated.  As of this minute I've finished 31 blocks and there will be more before the day is over.  It's such an addictive project.  I'll post a picture in a couple of days.
