Side Bet

Guess the number of jelly beans! Oops, wrong medium. 🙂 Guess the number of yards of yarn on my spindle, and win a prize! The person closest without going over will win. I’ve dug out a 2.8 oz blue batt from the stash for the lucky winner. Leave a comment below, or here on Ravelry. Contest closes midnight Mountain time, June 1, 2013, and is open to everyone from around the world.

Here is a cop of two-ply Polworth. Guess the yards!

    Good episode. I really liked the bit about living your retirement now. It’s so true. A lot of people wait and wait to do something and then never get a chance to do it. Tapestry looks fantastic!

    We too enjoyed the retirement planning essay. You two girls are definitely doing it, so is Dad, and I’m trying 🙂
    Yardage guess: 75. If I win, give the prize to No. 2!
