Red Scarf Project contest winners will win a fabulous SpinDoctor tote bag packed with 8 ounces of the lovely Corriedale roving I review in the episode.  The deadline for the contest is October 15th.  To enter, all you need to do is post two pictures in the relevant Ravelry thread: a picture of your red scarf, and a picture of your red scarf in a box addressed to the Red Scarf Project.  The actually mailing of the box will be on the honor system.
