I'm making a scarf and I'd like your help determining the design! All I need you to do is pick one of my 4 colors and tell me why. You can see the colors in an image attached to this email, or view them here: www.leafcutterdesigns.com/projects/tskpin.html
You can pick your color for lots of different reasons: maybe the color reminds you of a story, idea or curious fact? I will knit your color choices into my scarf by making stripes that match your color choices in the order that they arrive in my inbox. I can wear this scarf for years to come and think of all of you. Feel free to cc your friends and family with your email response to me. They are welcome to submit color choices to me as well! Thanks for your participation!
