Year of Giving - February - Cherub Chunky Wave - Introspection

For February, I made a quick hat out of Cherub Chunky Wave - a new color effect for Cherub Chunky with a gradation wave. Cherub Chunky Wave is a nylon-acrylic blend that is easy care - machine wash and dry making it perfect for charity knitting and gift giving. We will be giving away 3 kits (2 skeins of Cherub Chunky Wave in each) - 2 through the Cascade Yarns Facebook page and 1 through the Blog. To enter on the Blog, please comment with the last person/organization you gave a handmade item to. The winner will be drawn at 3 pm PST on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
