Mea culpa ...

... is Latin for "through my own fault" and is used by Catholics old enough to remember the Latin Mass as a general apology. And that's what I am doing now: apologizing. I have been so distracted by the election and some deadlines at work that I forgot to post my monthly fiber give away. I am really quite sorry
Well, on to the give away: a skein of Belle Soie's Sister Scarlet silk. I can recommend the Belle Soie line of silks highly: easy to strand, it lays beautifully on the fabric with very little dangling of the needle needed ... and the soft sheen and the colors in this line are a delight to the eye. I would describe the color Sister Scarlet as a Victorian Christmas red, rich and deep with lovely variations throughout the skein ... it is a perfect choice for a November giveaway since the recipient can use it for a last minute Christmas project. Leave your name and e-mail in the comments section and I will choose a winner on or about Nov. 18.
