OK so in the new Knitty, there was an article about vintage knitting. Being rather vintage myself, I enjoyed it so I clicked through to the author's blog. Cracked me up to discover that the name of it is The Kitchener Bitch! And, once there, discovered she was having a contest. Of course I had to enter. I'd read it during lunch at work Friday but didn't have time to comment then, and lost the slip of paper where I'd written her addy. But Google rescued me before the time ran out. What a fun and different contest! And the prizes are shown there in that link too.
So, after my New Years lunch I thought it would be a good idea to see if anyone had commented here...yay y'all had been by. And off to Yahoo I went so I could answer you. And lo and behold there was a letter headed Kitchener Bitch Contest - you won!! And y'all, I won a kit to make the Handmaiden Fleece Artist Bias Shawl!!!!!! Can you believe it?!?!?!? I don't know how closely I guessed the others, but my win (or maybe my luck in the draw) was for the third pic...the little kid in 'soakers'. My mom must have crocheted a thousand layette sets and they always included soakers.
I'm so excited...not only because I won but yeah that is incredible! I've never even touched that yarn before! But I shall just take it as an omen that this year is going to be a really really good one.
