Imagine my surprise when I received this email: You have won a prize from Blogger Bingo. Mary and I participated in Blogger Bingo at Rhinebeck. I was a square both Saturday and Sunday as well as a player and Mary was just a player. Mary was a doll and since I am not the most outgoing person, she played both cards. I wore the button and talked to people when they approached me but I am not real forward. (stop laughing, Julie) So of course when Mary saw that particular email she said HEY! I am the one that played – how come you won. Well it seems that Stitchy McYarnpants and Mr. McYarnpants did a random drawing and my number came up. I won some wonderful lace weight alpaca from Briar Rose in an autumn colorway. I can’t wait to see it.
I have also been knitting and crocheting up a storm this past week. I came back from Rhineback and seem to be a woman possessed. Since a week ago Wednesday, I have started and finished one of Jared’s fingerless mitts using his hand-dyed yarn and Dashing from Knitty.com. I finished Kelsie’s embossed leaf sock that has been on the needles since May. Started the Celtic Braid sock for a xmas present (can’t say who it is for, it is a surprise) and have made about 20 3x3 crochet granny squares for a scarf. And I worked all week. My, maybe I need to be one with the yarn more often.
