There was no getting away from the fact that I have a birthday coming up in 2 weeks time, so to celebrate this auspicious occasion I am holding a competition. I am offering up a skein of Posh Yarn, Lucia sock wool (30% cashmere 70% merino) in colourway 'Chortle'. This is an earthy blend of pale green, ginger, pale blue, and terracotta, since I am born under an 'earth' sign....all you need to do to win is pick me out of the line up above, just leave your answer in the comments, all correct entries will be entered into a draw on the 30th April. If no-one gets it right I will enter everybody into the draw and I am happy to post where-ever!
