And the Winners Are...

Not blogging is getting to be way too much of a habit, but I don't seem to have much to say. I mean, I think of things, and I don't write them down, and next thing I know either I've forgotten them or they no longer seem interesting. But, hey! I was running a contest, wasn't I? So I can tell you about the mittens and the contest winners.



You've probably seen them on Ravelry or Facebook already, but if not, voila. They have thumbs now, and I wove in the ends, but I haven't gotten around to taking another picture. Miss B commandeered them pretty much as soon as I put the tapestry needle away. I may make another pair for myself with a couple of design tweaks. Does anyone want the pattern? If so I will write it up. (No, I didn't wing this one, except for the thumbs, but I have to write out all the stuff like how many stitches in the thumb gusset. I hope I remember.)

The winner for guessing the motif was Debbi, who got it immediately despite my feeble attempt at misdirection. Debbi will get a little surprise at SPA, I think, since we will both be there and something there is bound to scream her name at me.

The random number generator picked CCR as the other winner. I will find something nice for her as well.

Oh, and I got an award! More on that later.

And tomorrow I have to do a Serious, Reflective Post on My Life So Far and How I Got Here (As Best I Recall). Well, I don't have to, but it's one of those milestones, a large, round one, so I'll try to come up with something semi-respectable.
