Contests and winnings

There are several contests out there that are worth mentioning.

First up is Chan celebrating her blogiversary. Pop on over and tell her about some crazy adventure/experience that someone has talked you into and you might just be rewarded for your antics.

Hurry on over to see Cinnamongirl and begin celebrating the arrival of spring.

Ponyknit is marching through March with Malabrigo to spare.

Anne's looking to expand on her blog reading and is asking for great blog links.

I know I've come across a few other contests but for the life of me can't remember where. Sorry.

Anyone reading this should head right on over to all of them and enter. Here's proof that knitting friends give great prizes!!!
Today the mail man brought me this wonderful package from Risa and her sock contest. She's kind of new to the blogging thing so hop on over and say hello. She's got a great eye for sock yarns!









This is hand dyed Chocolate Princess in Colarz. Check out her Etsy shop and all her lovely colorways. I love the color combination and can't wait to see what it turns out to be! Also in the package were adorable pink butterfly stitch markers and very stylish knitterly knote cards. Thanks Risa! You rock!

But that's not all the mailman brought me. Chris over at Drop Stitch Knitter had a contest a little while back and it was well worth the wait to receive her package of goodies!
What luscious additions to my stash! The prize package included some spring/Easter goodies... yum... as well as some tasty yarns. Couldn't you just eat these up!

Artyarns Supermerino 155

Karen's Heavenly Creations in Boston colorway


And Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Childsplay
Knitting friends have the biggest hearts and are total fun! Thanks again ladies! And to think today is Monday... oh Monday Monday. Usually not a very good day. But what a way to end spring break!
