Tokyo Rose

The last time I won something was at the Year 6 school disco - I won the door prize of a ghetto blaster with, OMG, two tape decks!! It was 1990.

Ten years later, Ailsa from Knitabulous Yarns dyed some yarn as part of her Black Japan club (which I desperately wanted to join, but had to save my pennies for impending Knit Camp), and put out a challenge for folks in Interwebs-ville to name it. It was a beautiful shade of pinkish red with a Japanese theme.

I went with Tokyo Rose:

AND I WON! Woooo. I won a skein of the beautiful yarn (50/50 merino silk) AND a Folca Box (possibly the coolest organisational tool ever!) Sadly my camera is on the blink so I can't provide any pictorial evidence of my awesome winnings.

Thanks Ailsa!

Now all I need to work out is what to knit with my Tokyo Rose. Suggestions?
