Earlier this month I was visiting one of the many beloved blogs that I like to keep my eye on and 2 Sistahs Knit Together had their 2nd blog anniversary contest.
And guess who won?!?! :oD It was a great package with a project bag, stitch markers, lovely yarn from Karida's Neighborhood Fiber Co. (along with a sample) and her co-authored book Pints & Purls!!
This whole package is filled with irony! As I just so happened to be thumbing thru this knit pattern book when later on that week I was notified I would be getting it! I have also been wanting to try this yarn when I heard about it after I met Chelette in person earlier this year. And how about I've always wanted a fabric made project bag ;o) But the biggest irony of it all. They randomly selected the winner which number came up to be eight and how about I was the 8th commenter and my favorite number happens to be eight!! With all of that it truly was so meant to be!! :o) And I am truly happy about it too!
Here is a closer look at the yummy yarn
It is called Kalorama Circle and it is 435 yards of 100% Superwash Merino...squeeeeeeeee!
And I am already thinking about pairing this yarn with the cowl that is in the book ;o)Which was personally signed by Karida!!! YAY!!!! Since I am more of a martini (and wine) sipper I will be a Tini & Purl chick! :o)
Thank you Cici & Chelette for a great blog anniversary contest gift!!! It definitely is very much appreciated and will be put to good use...hopefully over a few potent 'Tinis of course!! ;o)
