*SQUEEEEEEE* - RAK'd by wyldeyez Okay I really am so lucky and blessed 3 RAK's in a week!!! - I just picked up a parcel from the GB post office and found it stuffed to bursting with this:
5 skeins of Patons Canadiana in fabulous fall colors A cd of gorgeous knitting & crochet patterns An army of Bernat pattern leaflets A very cute Happy Berfday Canada postcard with the Party Moose on it
Sandra had emailed me a few weeks ago when I had posted on the knitty board about Canadiana - it's not available anywhere here in MD that I can find and she offered up some of her stash when I had mentioned that I wanted to try knitting something b/c I heard it was nicer than regular acrylic... I wasn't expecting anything more than a sample or two, but there's enough here for mittens, scarf and an hat if I calculated my yardage/metres right ---- wooo hoooo! I am so appreciative of all these wonderful gifts I receive and the contacts I've made on Knitty that I feel have formed into invaluable friendships.... thank you thank you thank you!
OKay - my little contest from 7/7 --- I had gotten 2 correct answers (see comments section from that day LOL) one from Miss Kirsti, who was officially the winner and one from Miss Sandra. It is yes, TheUSC Santa Cruz Zen Slugwho is soooooo cute and my new favorite collegiate mascot. I will be sending out 2 sets of stitch markers and 2 balls of luxury yarn when I get my head out of my butt this week LOL just because I love my home grrrls and who doesn't love free stuff? Thank you to all who Google'd and searched for Mr. Slug, posted, and of course thank you to those who stopped in for just a peek too :)
