Contest Winner!

Dear Laura:

Well, it's time for us to announce the winner of our first contest! The results have been tabulated (thanks for doing the math!) and the winner was Trek! She guessed 6 of the items correctly.

From the original post, we have:
The haul consists of: (4) skeins of Cascade 220, one each of pink, yellow, green and purple; (2) skeins of Blackberry Ridge Mer-made fingering weight, one in variegated pink and one in blues and greens; (1) sock pattern; (2) skeins of Blackberry Ridge Silky Merino in cream; 6 skeins of worsted Gedifra yarn, five in a heathered grey and one in cream; (1) large skein of Lorna's Laces sport weight in Bold Red; and finally, (1) book, Shadow Knitting by Vivian Høxbro.









The actual breakdown was:

Laura:
(1) skein of Blackberry Ridge Mer-made fingering weight in the variegated pink (she got the bright color this time!); (1) sock pattern and (6) skeins of worsted Gedifra yarn, five in a heathered grey and one in cream (to make a sweater for a birthday gift..)





Cynthia:
Well. All the rest. (4) skeins of Cascade 220 (as a gift for a friend!); (1) skein of Blackberry Ridge Mer-made fingering weight in the more subdued colors ^wink^; (2) skeins of Blackberry Ridge Silky Merino in cream (for the baptismal shawl I'm making); (1) large skein of Lorna's Laces sport weight in Bold Red (it was HALF PRICE!); and finally, (1) book, Shadow Knitting by Vivian Høxbro.


While we didn't need a tie-breaker, for the record, AS USUAL, Cynthia spent the most! ^blush^

The prize for our winner is a 95 gram skein of hand spun /hand dyed alpaca. It isn't labeled, but seems to be about a worsted weight. It is a blue/tan color overall, but lots of interesting colors up close. There is a hint of sparkle spun in as well! I got it from my local LYS (The Wool Barn) and I'll have to check with them to get more info on the source. So, watch your mailbox Trek - it will soon be headed your way. We hope you enjoy it, and thanks to all of our fine contestants!!


Keep knitting!!
