I have been very lucky this year, especially with contests (which I normally do not win.) I have won several and just won a couple more. Do you remember this post
when I discussed Survivor Gabon on Ravelry? I was very derogatory (shame on me, that will teach me to judge a book by its cover) about the contestants who were assigned to me, expecting Bob and/or Sugar to be the first contestants voted off. Guess what??! Bob won! Which means that I was the winner from group 7 on Ravelry. The rest of the group has been so generous I want to make sure and thank them all. But looky, I got my first two pair of Knitpicks Harmony needles. I have been dying to try them out, but could not justify it as I have every other needle I could possible want, but now I can try them without feeling guilty.
I also received some scrumptious yarn from Aunt Kathy that is very soft to touch and look at. Jane gave me a gift certificate to Amazon (just in time to buy some new books). I got note cards with cats on them; a yarn called Himalayas, that will make a great Urchin hat, and a Ravelry button. As I said, the people on my team were very generous..

I also won one of the tote bags that Darcy was giving away here. I am going to buy the book, Knit Two on my way home from work tomorrow night with a gift card I received for Christmas.

I am grateful to everyone who has allowed me to win their contests in the past year. Thank you!

I hope you like those KP Harmony needles. I got my first pair of DPNs last month and have knit several mitts with them. I love them! Now I want to collect more Harmony DPNs in other sizes.

I am glad you liked the squishy yarn. I loved it.

And I LOVE my harmony needles, I never use anything else now.

Oh no!!. I got delivery confirmation from the post office on the yarn I sent you. I hope nobody stole it off of your front porch. What can we do to fix this?
