The knittilicious goodness:
Alright, so here we have the birthday knitting:
My friend, Angela, is celebrating her birthday today. Happy Birthday, Ang!! Ang had mentioned awhile back that one day she wants a watermelon-themed kitchen. So, what better for a watermelon-themed kitchen than some dishcloths. I used some various Sugar N Cream 100% cotton in colors that looked good for a watermelon-themed kitchen. They turned out well. I think Ang was pleased. I may try to make her a couple more with the leftover yarn. :)
Then we have some socks:
I am working on Embossed Leaves socks from Favorite Socks. The yarn is STR Nodding Violet in Mediumweight. I am loving these socks! I have been working on these socks all weekend while listening to some Podcast goodness. I had no idea about the knitting podcasts until yesterday. How could I have been missing out on such greatness? I have no clue. Right now I am listening to some Lime & Violet. They are great!
Now, the moment you have all been waiting for...the results of the yarn contest.
Now, you may be wondering, how on earth did you pick a random winner? I had many entries (well, I had 43 entries...not bad for my first contest). I wanted to do this in Excel, but, alas did not have the proper add ins or something. So, Alex wrote a two line program in quick basic for me to generate a random number.
You are dying to know, aren't you?
And the winner is. . . .
She has won one skein of my hand-dyed yarn in the Bubble Gum colorway!
Congratulations, Kay! I have sent you an email regarding your win! And thanks to everyone for playing along. I am hoping to run another contest soon...I will keep you posted.
That is all I have for now. If you haven't done so yet, please check out my etsy shop. There is another skein of the Bubble Gum sock yarn available for purchase.
Happy knitting everyone! :)
