And the winner is...


Congratulations Batty!! Thanks for playing everyone!! My weekend was fabulous!! Rowan was exhausted and went straight to bed, so Snowboarder (yes...he finally made a guest appearance on the blog...hehehe) picked the lucky winner! Of course he was quite befuddled about the whole thing (huh? contest! prize? and then when I said, oh yeah, I'm glad batty won...he was like...batty?).
So a few of the questions....Batty asked about my dreamswatch yarn: Artyarns Regal Silk in color 130 (and it wasn't until I got home that I realized it was almost the exact colorway of my Thujas!).
Turtlegirl76 asked if the Bambu yarn was at MDSW. Well, my question Turtlegirl is, weren't you like the 5th person in line there...hehehe...I didn't go to MDSW. It was at Stitches West where I did buy 2 skeins in Spring Fling to make Bambuzzled (a Cookie A. pattern published by Blue Moon Fiber Arts)- they had a sample made up there. They didn't have any of these new colorways. If I remember correctly, for awhile they carried Bambu online during the winter...so maybe it will be back. They still had some at Purlescence Yarns last week.
Jessica asked, "How do you know when you're really in love and if its going to last?" Anyone got the answers? Help us girls out! (oh, and if you go back and read the comments again, Jessica kinda tried to do a redo question, but I don't have an answer to that question either!) My answer...I don't know!! But I will leave you with this. Snowboarder and I knew each other for maybe 2-3 months and he bought me my first present, all on his own, without any help, for no particular reason. Guess what it was? YARN!!! From Imagiknit!! My absolute favorite store in the city (thank goodness he walked into that hip and cool yarn store or else he might of thought I wasn't so cool anymore!). I never even mentioned that store to him. He just happened to work near it! And he picked out two pattern books (okay, we know he probably had help) and yarn to go with it. The books til this day make me laugh. A knitting bags book (perfect! he said cause he knew I had knit lots of purses for my friends!) and get this, a debbie bliss baby knits book! Seriously, what guy would buy a baby knits book for a girl he was dating that early! I asked why he picked that out and he said well you seem to knit lots of baby stuff for your friends (oh, okay, phew!). Anyways, in my book, the way to a girl's heart, yarn. Doesn't really answer the bigger question, but its a step in the right direction.
I'll answer more of the questions later this week!! Have a great week!

I had tunnel vision when I was in line. I went for the STR that was straight ahead and got out of the mass of people.

Heh, I was at Purlescence on Sat and was debating on getting those colors or the Rock Creek. I was actually good and didn't get Bambu this time 'cause I bought the Carbon one from them long time ago and still haven't made Cookie's pattern or knitty Convertible out of it yet.

Part of the fun of this yarn is simply squishing it in its skein form, it's so soft!

Yay, this really made my day today! And I should have known that stuff was Artyarns... their colorways are bad for my wallet. Every time.
