I do smile~and a giveaway

I do smile.... I do... I have be given an award...by Camilla A Kreative Blogger Award ... an honor from a friend. who herself has such a wonderful, and creative blog. That makes me smile ;) Along with this award,comes some stipulations, as they always do:
1. Copy the award to your site.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers.
4. Link to those sites on your blog.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominate.
...and list 7 things about yourself. hmmm...then...I do not smile.... no problems with 1 & 2...[ the award is in the side bar] #3...I shy from,because I want to nominate you all. you all are inspiring...and you all deserve awards... and 7 things about me... well..that is the hardest of all. I've said a little here and here and here ... but... you know, I really shy from that... so what I will say is: In true Virgo fashion,I am my own worst critic; I am soft where I should be hard; and hard where I should be soft; I try very hard not to be artificial; I try to be true and loyal; I do smile-although in front of the camera I freeze; and I love to laugh-even if I come across as serious. see...a frozen sort of smile... but one none the less. and some knitting... well that always makes me smile. And I want to make someone else smile. So in honor of me receiving and award...I am having another little drawing. a surprise,because after all it is Halloween week, so some mystery should be involved. You will like it... you will smile... I'll reveal it in a week or so. leave me a comment and I'll count you in... until then... all I will say is Namaste... smile.

Tasmanian toasty snood~

okay...now,what is a snood? snood (snd)
n.
1. A small netlike cap worn by women to keep the hair in place.
2. A headband or fillet.
3. A fleshy wrinkled fold of skin that hangs down over a turkey's beak.
tr.v. snood·ed, snood·ing, snoods
To hold (the hair) in place with a snood.
hmmmm. looks like a cowl... but I begged off cowl's last winter... it's that whole , pulling it over the head,messing up your hair thing... but Michele... so beautiful,kind and generous... gifted me this wonderful alpaca... straight from the alpaca's in Tasmania... and I wanted to use it close to my body, to feel the warmth and softness. tried several patterns... and not really happy with any, started this snood... from Rowan Winter Gifts... and came to love it... problem is... it's not a net for my hair, it's not a headband, and oooooh... I hope it's not that fleshy turkey thing... don't tell anyone... we'll just call it a cowl for now.... and seriously...how could I not share this...?

unpredictable/transformable

"We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are" Max De Pree So I changed my mind. With all of your input. The other buttons went... these remain. Really, it was an after thought. I had fully intended to use the others... but there were only 7 ... I need 8... so I was looking for a substitute... the rest is history. I bought these in Maine a long time ago some sort of antler each button unique in shape, but similar in tone...the right tones for my etole... etole transformable from La Droguerie my Autumn etole... clearly transformable.. a shrug, a scarf, a wrap of sorts... I don't feel comfortable publishing the pattern. it was a gift. What I can tell you is it is basically a long rectangle... garter stitched edges. buttonholes...and 4 buttons... either side easy...quick do it in 15 hours minutes... you can figure it out... you are unpredictable,no? transformable,yes? try it...
