OWOH Giveaway Thank You

This is just a quick post to let you know that I am so touched by your kind comments about the scarf I am giving away for One World One Heart!  Although I'd love to send a personal thank you to each one of you, there are now over 115 comments at the time of this writing and the number grows each day.  Please accept this post as my thank you for your wonderful comments. You have given me cause to think about the crocheting that I do in a whole new way.

Cameras and computer monitors sometimes play "tricks" with actual color, and from reading some of the comments the scarf in my photo appears to be red on some monitors.  I would hate to disappoint anyone who would like a red scarf (red is one of my favorite colors too), so I want to let you know that the scarf was made with Patons Classic Merino Wool in Paprika.  If you click on the link and look at the color swatch on the Patons website,  the color still does not seem to be true to the actual yarn color, as on my monitor it appears to be bright orange. 

So, I'll do my best to describe the color.  To my eyes, Paprika is a very autumnal deep rust orange that is close to rust brown,  although it definitely has red undertones.  It's really a lovely color.

And come rain or shine, I'll will definitely see you here tomorrow for Vintage Thingies Thursday!

I SO wish I could crochet. :) I am amazed beyond belief by the response of One World One Heart. I am meeting the loveliest folk from all over. :) Have a great night, my wonderful friend! Theresa
