Melissa and I have just finished doing the prize draw for the Blogiversary Raffle for the Animals.
And nowâ€”drum roll, pleaseâ€”the winners are:
The Swallowtail Shawl in Louisa Harding Cinnabar: Susan B. of Peach Blossom Knits, who not only gave to the animals, but wound up adopting a new dog as a result.
The print by Melissa West: my niece, Miss Sparkles. (I double pinky swear that the draw was not rigged. Melissa drew the names with her eyes closed, and I didn’t even touch the bag she was drawing from.)
Two skeins of Socks that Rock, Undertoe colorway (donated by my friend Chris): Cathy-Cate at Hither and Yarn
The Bag of Twize: Donna C.
The Bag of Cotton Flamme: Clarabelle
The set of seven hand-knit dishcloths, one for each day of the week: Laurie at Knitting Garden
The copy of Sensational Knitted Socks: Ruth at 5elemenkintr
The Short Attention-Span Knitting Kit (a mini-kit for knitted appliques, along with abridged versions of Knitting for Dummies and Cocktails for Dummies): Melissa’s sister, Joanna (Again, I double pinky swear that nothing was rigged.)
I will be emailing the winners to make shipping arrangements. Meanwhile, thank you to every who contributed to this raffle. I am touched, encouraged, and delighted by your generosity. Our final total was $883, with which the great groups who received the money will be able to do all sorts of wonderful things.
