Drumroll Please...

Ok, first and foremost, I entered all your names into a spreadsheet and then used a random number generator to choose a winner, and that winner is....

Marjon! Congratulations! I'll be contacting you through Ravelry to get the pattern and yarn to you! Thank you to everyone who left me a comment wishing me safe travel home and to enter the contest!
Since I've been back, I've been seeing family, friends, and applying for jobs. I haven't done a whole lot of knitting the past few days because of that, so I don't have much to show you. Also, the other reason I haven't been knitting as much is this guy:This is Obi and he's a 13 year old Shitzu who is partially blind and nearly deaf. He needs a lot of care, and I'm here to care for him until Wednesday while my cousin, his mama, is out of town. He's very cute, but he's spoiled, and expects you to pay lots of attention to him!

I did cast on a simple garter stitch scarf out of 2 skeins of Lumpy Bumpy yarn. Here's the progress on it:It's lumpy, it's bumpy, it's soft, and it will make a nice, warm scarf for the winter.

That's it for today. I'll show some more stuff here soon.

Knit on...

Woohoo! What a fantastic surprise to win the pattern and yarn! I was away at Stitches Midwest and came home just now to this wonderful news!

Thanks a bunch and have fun with Obi - 13, blind, and deaf; he deserves to be spoiled!

Thanks again,
