Ms. Blondie wants to know.

No, I'm not Ms. Blondie. In fact, lately I've been contemplating going back to Ms. Brunette-y or even Ms. Redhead, but that's another story.

Ms. Blondie is one of our longtime Loops customers. She is a fabulous knitter and one of those lucky folks who continues to look younger, year after year, even as the clock moves forward for the rest of us. She has learned the secret of choosing the perfect knits and modifying them to complement her own shape and coloring. She is also addicted to pattern books - much like myself.

Anyway, Ms. Blondie has a problem. She was thrilled to receive her Loops Loot reward for earning 30 Loops points in the 3rd quarter: A skein of Three Irish Girls Wexford silk/merino in our own exclusive Loopalicious colorway.

She excitedly searched for the perfect pattern, a "one-skein" cowl, and jumped right in - only to realize halfway through that her she was going to run out of yarn much too soon.

Hoo boy - we have all been there, right?

Ms. Blondie messaged me on ravelry, hoping we might have an extra skein in the back room or something. Alas, we had only enough skeins for our 76 reward recipients - not even a little commemorative scrap was left for yours truly :(

So, dear Loopies, here is your chance to help out a fellow knitter. If enough people comment that they would buy this yarn, I will place a re-order post haste. Would you buy this yarn? What would you make with it? Or should Ms. Blondie take her cowl to the frog pond and rip-it, rip-it?

- Shelley

P.S. To earn Loops Loot for the 4th quarter, just amass 50 points at either Loops store and/or online between now and December 31. Then look for a surprise in the mailbox come January!
