I know it's not Friday, but I have some lovely Eye Candy to share with you: my knitaversary contest winners and their prizes!
4. Chery selected a small digital scale, a last-minute addition to the prize line-up. I don't know why I didn't think of offering this as a prize earlier, I love using mine! I got her the exact same model I use myself - goes up to 500 grams, accurate to 0.1 grams, and a convenient size for a standard skein of yarn. Got it from Digiweigh-scales on eBay.
Thank you, Judi, Gillian, Heather, Chery, and Hillary for reading my blog, leaving comments, and participating in this contest! Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy your prizes!
And now, the announcement of the biggest winner of all - it's me! We have so many options nowadays, and I'm grateful that you continue to read my blog, leave comments, and support me through my good... and my not-so-good knitting adventures :). I rewarded myself with a skein of Fleece Artist Trail Socks in Peridot (from Tidal Brook Yarns).
This new-to-me yarn is composed of 80% merino wool and 20% nylon, and feels soft and strong! The available colors are incredible, both the bright and lively, and the grandma-friendly subdued ones, like the Peridot above. I can hardly wait to knit with it!
