I'm the Mary!

Jen, of Woolgirl fame recently held a contest called "What's Your Favorite TV Show". To enter, participants were asked to suggest a favorite TV show worthy of its own custom colorway.

My entry came in 3rd place! And my entry was "Mary Tyler Moore" Growing up in the 70's, MTM was one of my favorite shows and one of the few (only?) shows that portrayed a single, career woman who wasn't ditsy or desperately seeking a man to support her. Mary "made it on her own" and, as life has dealt me similar cards, I have too.



Remember the "M" Mary had in her kitchen? When I bought my house, the first thing I hung on the wall was a "C" in my kitchen.


Well, I had no idea when I heard I was a 3rd place winner, that this was my prize! 2 skeins of a custom dyed Mary Tyler Moore tvyarn!


It's got some of that cool 70's vibe:
And the blue from that famous hat she tosses in the air:



Thank you Jen!!
