i spent so much time being shocked and surprised and ecstatic this afternoon that i have been ready to go to bed for the last hour or two. but here is a second wind so i can tell you about the awesome that came my way today!
i got a phone call from needlework unlimited around noon, telling me that i was their in-store grand prize winner for completing the entire yarn shop hop last weekend! what-the-what! it was so long ago that i had nearly forgotten it ever happened.
YOU GUYS. this wasn’t even the GRAND grand prize! i am just so thrilled! so much goodness in these new-to-me items!
some of the yarn goodies: trendsetter yarns “orbit”, watershed yarns pure virgin wool, 2 skeins of malabrigo “silky merino”, 10 skeins (10!) of zealana “willow”, la jolla superwash merino, cascade yarns “casablanca”, 2 skeins of smc select “violena colori”, jojoland “melody” (which is the exact same color as the scarf i knit for my sister last christmas!), zealana merino, zealana merino & possum blend (possum??), cascade yarns “kid seta”, austermann “step” (“mit aloe vera und jojoba öl” it says — mmm, socks!), 3 skeins of plymouth yarn “bamtastic” (with a pattern to make a baby sweater), filatura di crosa “moda”
how cute are these buttons? whoever put this prize package together knows me pretty well!
i’m just floored. i can’t stop using exclamation points!! this is just so awesome!
THANK YOU to Needlework Unlimited, and to all of the shops i visited last weekend. i’m looking forward to trying my luck again next year!
