A Hooping Adventure and a Handmade Giveaway!

Yep, you read that right -- I am teaching a hooping fitness class at Gold's Gym, starting tonight (I know the flyer says October 8, but that changed).  I am so scared/excited/in awe that I don't know what to do with myself.  I hope that the folks enjoy the class tonight, and I hope God will give me courage in a room full of eyes and mirrors! 
Finished scarflet
In honor of this auspicious day, I am giving away this crocheted cowl, which I just put the finishing touches on yesterday. It's soft and perfect for chilly autumn days when you don't feel like wearing a full-on scarf.  However, I've run up against a little dilemma. I am not sure which of the photos from my cowl modeling session best shows it off.  Eventually I'd like to sell crocheted items on my Etsy shop, Shots 'n' Knots.

So, to enter to win this cowl, simply post in the comments which of these photos you like the best (access the full-sized images here):
 After you weigh in with your favorite shot, you can earn additional entries by:
  • Blogging about this giveaway
  • Tweeting about the giveaway (For example: "@Betherann is giving away a handmade cowl on Life in Progress!  Enter here:")
  • Sharing the link to this post on Facebook, Delicious, or any other social networking medium
  • Trying any one of my recipes and posting about it on your blog (or Facebook, etc.), being sure to link back to the original source -- this will earn you two extra entries! 
For each additional entry, be sure to post an extra comment.  The deadline to enter is 6:00 PM Mountain Time on Monday, October 18.  The winner will be announced the next day.
