Two winners!

First winner is.....ME! Yay! A while back my friend Opal told me about a blog contest that Harriet was having over at Lime Dragon. Well she is sorry she told me about it now, because the random number generator picked me! She sent me a wonderful package!
This is Twinkletoes sock yarn and the colors are so yummy! Harriet knit herself a gorgeous pair of Pomatomus socks with the same yarn, you can see them here. I might actually have to brave that pattern now, because hers look so nice in this yarn. She also sent some chocolate (YUMM! I'm surprised I had enough willpower to take a picture before I devoured it lol), a crocheted hat pattern, a darling little sheepie clip (anyone know where to get these? He is just adorable!), and a knitting girl note card. She is so sweet! Thanks again Harriet.

Our next winner.......

I declare my experimental sock a winner! I think it turned out pretty cute. I am making them more of an ankle length for The Sporty One. I received the Panda Wool from Crystal Palace when I agreed to test knit with some new needles. I really like it, and I would definitely buy it again. I'm not sure where to get it yet locally, but if I see it, I will probably try some of the solids next.
Thanks anyone who is still reading. I know I have been so lame with the posting lately. I can't reply to most of the comments either, because Blogger won't let me unless your email is public. Working is definitely cutting into my hobby time too. I will have more money for yarn now (evil cackle), or maybe I will save up for a laptop, so I don't have to share the computer with the kids. And then there's that spinning wheel........
So what's everyone knitting for spring? I'm in need of some inspiration! (I'm so sick of cold weather!)
