Contest winners!

Yay!

Ok, in the past I pulled names out of a hat. This time however there were so many of you I used a random # generator!

Let me first say thank you for all of the support. I'm not as upset anymore because I don't think about it. As a matter of fact, I plan to delete the post with the story. It's ugly. Maybe I'll replace it with a picture of some kittens or perhaps some puppies...where was I? Oh yeah, ugliness. It was brought to my attention that I am no saint. Well of course not, never claimed to be. However there is no excuse for what happened. Actually it was also brought to my attention that firing one employee to be fair to other employees who 'need the money' or have that job as their 'only source of income' is illegal. But whatever. Here I go again and I said I was done. Here's a pic to change the mood...


Now on to the good stuff!

Prize #1 is a hank of sock yarn from Lone Star Arts in the Burn colorway and it goes to.......Trillian42!

Prize #2 is a set of stitch markers made by Susan and they go to.....Rincaro!

Prize #3 is a pattern by the small or indie designer of your choosing and that goes to....Anne-Caroline!

Prize #4 is a skein of Fleece Artist sock yarn in the Forest colorway and it goes to.....Daryl!

here is a pic of the sock yarns...


I don't have the markers in hand yet and I'll let you guys know what pattern Anne-Caroline chooses. Thanks everyone for playing! I've always said there's nothing like a contest to bring lurkers out of the woodwork ;o) Everyone send me your addresses and I'll get your prizes in the mail.

Remember I said I'd been knitting? Well here's some progress on Wicked...

I was on a roll but fatigue and illness slowed me down. Now that I'm on the mend (though my voice is nowhere to be found)I hope to be finished before the end of the coming week.

Have a great weekend!

Who among us is a saint?? I mean, really. I hope you don't delete your story, but it's your choice. Congrats to the lucky winners! And I'm glad you're feeling better!

Hey woman,

I love the progress of your Wicked. I just started mine but I have so much school work Agh! Posts updates as you go along. I can then vicariously live through you.

Wicked is looking so good! Since I finished Clapotis, I may have to try top. What the hey, right?

I can't believe that I actually won. I am a new knitter and a very, very new blogger. I mostly lurk but decided that the only way to get to "know" people was to actually start posting. Thank you so much for making delurking so rewarding.

Wicked is looking fantastic!
Sorry I didn't get a pic of the stitchmarkers to you. I've been a little under the weather myself. I'll get them out tomorrow.

Anne-Caroline said...

Wow, oh my - I have never ever won any contest. I didn't even leave that comment to win anything - I just wanted to help you commiserate. This is awesome. Thanks! So - how does it work? Let me know...

Hope your weekend was great!

Daryl said...

I have to "fess up". I don't know how to send you an email with my address. I wasn't kidding when I said that I was a newbie to the blogosphere.

During the disagreement I made a comment to the sa knitting club and i was removed. I am a very new knitter and I have rarely commented on anything. I didn't use any profanity or anything and i was removed from the club. I never made any of the meeting, since I was such a new knitter, figured I needed to get better. I was wondering does anyone reading this know about why I was removed from the club. It really hurt my feelings, if you know anything about it could you email me lilliedud@msn.com

What a sweet picture of your son!

Glad things are looking up. Hope you continue to feel stronger soon. I hate being ill!
