It seems I never win anything, but I am participating in the Ravelry Gift-A-Long until the end of this year and my name was selected this evening to receive a free pattern from designer Margaret Kendall. I hurriedly went to her designer page and picked the "Third Rail Cowl" as my choice. It looks beautiful and I'll look forward to casting on probably not until after the Holidays.

I might even use this same yarn - I'm busy "shopping" right now, because, of course, I don't have anything in my stash!!
