We Have Winners....and Buttons, and Needles, and Patterns OH MY



I just got up from night shift and I can't make the pattern rotate...please turn your head about so you can see the pattern right side up!

Well, here we are with the first box back from the Take and Replace Swap. Let me say, none of you know your math......there are so many items in the box it is unbelievable. There are 17 skeins of yarn alone...
Remember, you take One thing out, you put one thing back.....oh my gosh....I know for a fact each box began with 10 items.....no matter

The generosity of knitters is something really amazing.

I have to say I worried about the boxes the whole way through the swap. I wanted each and everyone in the swap to have so much fun with it. I think we succeeded ladies!

I will be showing more of the box contents, but today we'll start with the sweater pattern that I plan to knit!!! Who put it in there??? WHo WHO?

The big needles are JUST what I have been hankering for. I need to knit my sister's blanket soon and the Bates circulars will be wonderful. The wooden needles are really lovely in their own right.

The little buttons are adorable don't you think? Who put the Scented sampler hand cremes in? I am on the BEACH the minute I smell Toasted Coconut. Love the CocoMango too......

NOW for what you've all been patiently waiting for. (Finally, the crowd sighs, get to the winners!)

The Winner of the Green Team Raffle for getting their box back to me first was picked by random number generator .......and
BETH MC from Bothell WA is our winner. Beth, I need to know more about you before I send your prize. I will be sending you a little list of 10 questions, and then I'll know what your prize will be......

AND
The Animal Shelter Kitty Blanket Raffle closed today. Random number generator picked Laura K. from Glen Cove NY as our winner. Can you email me: at Harpnut@gmail.com and I'll connect you with Betty from Moose Manor handpaints for your gorgeous custom colorway!!!! Laura, you are RC mom right???? SO happy you won!

That's it for today. Hip hip hooray.

The pattern was from me - I'm SO excited that you're so excited!

The box was stuffed by the time it got to me.... I was a bit challenged to get my replaces to fit in the box, even after removing my takes! Hope you have fun working your way through all the goodies!

The RED box got mailed out to you Monday morning from the Paw Paw Michigan post office. The woman at the window was amazed at what looked like a Priority Box wrapped in a tape ball. She said, "Looks like this box has gone through a lot of recycling." But she was smiling and she took it.

Hope you have as much fun with the RED box when it gets to you. Thanks for a fun time.

Congratulations to the winners. What a wonderful swap this was--so much fun!! From what I've seen, everyone received fantastic knitty things! Who could ask for more?

Ooh, thank you! I started writing you back but I really need to go to bed so I'll finish my e-mail later. I'm so excited!

Just wanted to let you know that I have received my kitty blanket contest skein from Betty of Moose Manor Hand Paints. I chose her Superwash Sock yarn in the color Vineyard and it is beautiful. I will stash it for the perfect small shawl and I am so happy with it.
Betty is lovely and could not have been nicer.
