Speaking of Qiviut...

Windy Valley Muskox is having a very cool contest where they will be giving away a skein of their fabulous yarn once a week until February 29. 

Click here for details on the contest, which is pretty easy to enter.

I saw a woman knitting Liz Abinante's Traveling Woman shawl out of qiviut when I happened upon MAIWA Supply on Vancouver's Granville Island last summer. Talk about sumptuous! And she said it didn't take a lot of yarn at all. Nice suggestion for a luxe project!
