Prizes, Pix, and I am Bad/Rude

I am a bad/rude person, sometimes. I won two contests this summer and never posted about them and I am very sorry Jane and Aunt Kathy

Jane of Grammiknits had a 400th post contest in July and I was one of the lucky winners and this is what I won - a great market bag. I love it and use it all of the time, I find it especially handy at the farmer’s market. Thank you Jane, I am sorry I am so bad/rude.

Aunt Kathy of Aunt Kathy’s Place had a contest that ran for most of the summer (with weekly prizes) and I won this yarn and needles. Aren’t they great? Thank you Aunt Kathy, I am sorry I am so bad/rude, again! I haven’t decided what to make yet, but I will let you know. Any suggestions?

Survivors Ready is set up on Ravelry and I got in; I am on Team 7. Every one is assigned two people to support for the entire season (I have been assigned to Bob and Jessica) and which ever Team member's players win, gets prizes from the rest of the team (ranging from $15-$20). This will be fun, but I do not think I will be the winner on my team :-)

Here is the picture of the collapsible hat I finished Sunday,and I have already started a matching scarf, which is moving along quickly. I like the roll brim instead of the normal ribbing and it will fit well, so this one is a success.

Monica Ferris is an author who has been around awhile and she writes needlework adventures. The hero of the book runs a needlework store where she meets and greets people from all over town. Her books are fun, sometimes a little twisted, but great for reading at stoplights when your wrists hurt too much to knit. I just finished reading “Framed in Lace” and “Knitting Bones” and enjoyed them both.

Georgi as far as that yarn, I used it mostly for slipper socks for my nieces and nephews. I have a couple other colors for sale in the ETSY shop if you want to see what they look like. Easy smeazy, LOL.

And since it's self striping a scarf and matching hat would probably look nice too.

It's OK you didn't blog about it, I sometimes forget those things too. I certainly don't think you are bad or rude at all.

I'd love to read those books, I'll have to watch for them on paperback swap

I totally missed that survivor was starting up again! Thanks!

Sounds like an interesting read. I just started Alexander McCall Smith's "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" and I am enjoying it so far.
