Blog Contest Winner and Birthday Knitting!!

Blog Contest Results are below. But, hey, while you're here, why not read my blog?

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.

The results?

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! :)


  1. Thanks, Jen. It's bubbleluscious!

    And I think your friend is lucky to have you as a friend and to knit such pretty things for her kitchen.

    And about the podcasts..I've listened to them almost since their beginning. Aren't they the best use of your knitting time? Here's one (not knitting, though) from Lake Wobegon:
    The News from Lake Wobegon

  2. I was confused by the watermelon slice dishcloth...but now I get it. Looks like a great gift!

  3. Cute blog! I saw your post on the Etsy forum so I thought I'd come and take a peek. Your yarns are yummy! I don't knit, but I love to look at yarn.


  4. Congratulations to the winner Kay!

  5. I love the colors you chose for the cloths. I bet they will be well loved. Congrats to the winner of your gorgeous yarn, too!

  6. Watermelon dish rags! What a great idea!
