I’ve been complaining a lot this month, but what I really think is happening is a karmic kind of balance. Sure, there’s been some bad, but there’s been some really good stuff too.
I’m one of those people who never win anything, so when I win two contests in a row I really feel lucky. The first one was Sheri‘s September Loot.
Two highly-coveted skeins of sock yarn!
Yarntini Variegated in Pumpkin Spice – destined to be Monkeys for my sister.
Wollmeise Superwash Sockenwolle in Raku-Regenbogen. I had a hard time getting all the colors in this colorway in the picture. Basically, it’s a rainbow but all the colors are muted and fall-like. I don’t normally gravitate to these colors when shopping, but I love them here!
The second contest I won was Knitnzu‘s Belated Blogiversary. I won more yarn and a special extra something….
Artful Yarns: Shakespeare. I haven’t done any research on it yet, but I think it’s a bulky single ply. I’m trying to decide if it’ll be soft enough for a new hat for Ladybug. What do you think, Lisa?
And the little something extra is this too cute DPN case! We have a red and white polka-dot obsession going on at the house right now because of Ladybug’s Minnie Mouse costume. I’ve already got my size 1’s in there now. Thanks Lisa, and I wish you many more happy blogiversaries!
