Hello winners! And some holiday loot!
Yesterday I used a random number generator to pick my two winners for the Dirty Wow Wow contest. A copy of the book goes to Aline over at Laine de Bergere - she was a new commenter, and she said it is the first contest she has entered! Yay! Some yarn goes to Christine, my blogless friend from the East Coast, the yarn will need to be negotiated. So, someone who I have known on-line for awhile and someone brand spankin' new - that makes me feel great! Thank you to everyone who played along and offered up their own warm fuzzy story about a childhood lovie, I truly enjoyed reading every one.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. I have had the last two days off and let me just say, I take "long winters' nap" too literally. I don't do well when my time is unstructured - further evidence why I would not make a good stay at home mom - I would never get out of my jammies and the kids would eat waffles for every meal. I'll head back to work tomorrow just for a day - the reality check I will need to survive 4 more days off.
Anyways, I did get some terrific yarn from my husband and sister - I got some Sundara from DH. Charcoal over Crimson - nice, the picture is pretty close. Very rich and lots of color depth.
And the crowning jewel, as it was last year, was from my sister. Direct from Yarntini herself - who literally just had a baby - sweet Babytini. I got a skein of Susie's Itty Bitty Susan, delicious like sweet tarts and two skeins of 100% cashmere in my "signature" Peaknit colorway - bubble gum pink - I feel so humble to have a pretty pink named after my blog. Gosh, what will it all become? I have never even held cashmere like this in my hand, like feathers - suggestions welcome - I know not what knit is worthy enough for such fanciness.
