The Lucky Winners!

Tickled Pink

I absolutely love it! I mean its STR heavyweight, so how can you not. But the color....
I'm still in the these colors are amazing phase!
Please remind me of this in a few weeks when the monotony of garter stitch gets to me!

Tickled Pink

The correct answer for the contest was 10 strips completed (remember, I count that middle-thingy!). There were actually a few people who guessed correctly, but according to the random number generator, the winner is.....
Since I know she too loves STR, I figured she'd love this yarny goodness prize...

Pebble Beach

Socks that Rock, mill end (of Pebble Beach I think)

I (well, me and the random number generator again) also picked a random runner-up winner and that was ...

Babbling Brook

The runner-up prize was supposed to be some malabrigo, but I think I'll give Stacey her choice of malabrigo or me diving into my sock stash, as I know she loves to knit socks too!

Hope you all had a fabulous St. Patty's Day! Our dinner was delicious and now I'll be watching one of my favorite new movies, Once. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. Well, at least listen to the soundtrack. Its perfect.

Tomorrow: Snowboarder is modeling his new Koolhaas......

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Loving the blanket. I hope it turns out really big - it'll be a showstopper.

That pebble beach yarn is just gorgeous. Lucky Nell.

We saw Once last week - downloaded it, our new preferred method of 'video rental'. Loved it, loved it. And the music is great. I loved the ending - everyone gets happy :-)

Well, if the construction were what I thought it was, I probably would have guessed right because from looking, I can count 15 of the size strips I had first envisioned!-LOL! Well, congrats to Nell!!! AND Babblingbrook! Not like I needed more yarn anyways, right?! ;) But I sure love that blanket!
