And the winner is . . .

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for: PRIZES!! Wheeeeeeee!

Who doesn't like prizes?

Now, I told you guys I would throw in a skein of Skinny Bugga if we met my personal fundraising goal, and though we didn't quite make it, we got pretty darn close. Plus, I missed my blogoversary in the midst of all this raffling. So I'm going to give the Bugga away anyway. I hope you can all appreciate the pain and suffering this will cause me. Really.

The hat o' many names

Now, the good stuff:

Betty of Los Altos, CA, you've won a copy of Norah Gaughan, V. 1!

Catherine of Montgomery Village, MD, you've got yourself a skein of Shivaya Naturals laceweight

Ann of Coral Gables, FL, you are now the proud owner of the Transition Gloves pattern and the yarn to make a pair, donated by the awesome Deirdre at Flocks of Yarn.

Shannon of Sandusky, OH, you'll be receiving some gorgeous roving from the lovely Leann over at Forbidden Woolery

Sara from London, Ontario, you've won a colorful skein of Creatively Dyed Calypso sock yarn

Heather of Coon Rapids, MN, watch your mailbox for a skein of Sundara sock yarn

and . . .

Stephanie of Schenectady, NY is the lucky lucky winner of a lovely skein of Skinny Bugga in Blu-- er, um, Lub-- uh, grrrr, this is so hard.

OK, a lovely skein of Skinny Bugga in Hologram Moth.


Congratulations to all the winners, I'll be contacting each of you individually to confirm shipping addresses, and then get your prizes out (as soon as I find enough random packing materials to ship them).

And again, a big, big thank you to everyone who donated or helped spread the word. I hope to do this raffle again next year (so if you're ever wandering by and think, "hey, I'd like to donate a prize," send me a message!).

And now, maybe I can get back to my (semi-) regular blogging about knitting.
