New Yarn Wrap Up

You know one of the things that I have enjoyed most about holding this contest is all of the interesting people that comment. I make sure to check out every blog that is listed, because it is so interesting. Some of my favorites include a knitter that is a truck driver and blogs from all over the US, a knitter/spinner in China, a knitter from The Netherlands, a Finnish ex-pat living in Mexico City, and a Norwegian Knitter, There were many many more awesome blogs, so if you want to read them check back through the comments!

Ok, ok, I am sure that you guys are mainly here to find out who won that lovely skein of yarn. Well, because there were simply so many people who commented I decided to do 2 skeins. The winners are Blogless in NJ and Teri (who is also blogless). I use a random generator to pick winners, which is the same one that Wendyknits uses. To claim your prize simply purchase which skein you would like from my shop and I will send it to you or bill you for any additional skeins. Congratulations!!!

And because there were simply so many comments on all of my posts, I decided to award every person that posted on all 10 of my posts a 15% discount on any yarn they buy from my shop to the end of January and they are: Amy (kewpie doll), Amylou61, Aruni, Beth, Blogless in NJ, Colibridreams, dodo, Elaine, ikkinlala, Jessie, Missy, Monica, Purple-Power, Rachel O, Ruby Banshee, Sharon Rose, Squiggi, Teabird, Teri, and Turtle. When you check out simply leave your commenter name in the comments and I will send you an invoice with the new total!

Some interesting things from running this contest: there were 323 comments made over all 10 posts. You guys are really opinionated about yarn, which is awesome, because it helped me make some good decisions and has also helped me out with some ideas I have been working on. Thank you all so much! I will announce next week which yarns I am going to keep, so stay tuned!
