Of Contests and Wins


 Our garden contrast...
 Backyard Beatles

Nicole's Contest Prizes for ME!
Bookwyrmknits.wordpress.

I also won a pattern from Ellen
at Theellenreport.blogspot.com

I chose the AUGUSTINE shawlette pattern for my prize. 
(Check out their blogs.....good fun.) 

I'm a kid....I LOVED the Mickey Mouse
pen and keychain.  
The misti Alpaca prize yarn is so soft 
I want to just carry it around all day..
but it is going to be fingerless mitts for sure
when I knit it up. 

NOW for my blog contest:
You have until tomorrow, Monday evening,
to enter.  

May I just say the the Stitch marker prizes are adorable....
the Yarn prize is so nice I want to keep it:
Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Abril
the most gorgeous purples you can imagine. 

and I'm off to find
the last prize for the third winner:
that Blackhawks fever prize.

Hopefully the Hawks can pull it off tomorrow.
It is my husband's birthday tomorrow and he is a big fan of the Hawks. Wouldn't that be a great birthday gift for him if they win?
He has a number of birthday meals coming to him and we are going to a local place in Glenview tonight for dinner.

You are always so fun to visit my dear friend Kathy.
Hugs to you and good luck to your Blackhawks.

Your backyard is gorgeous!! I love Misti Alpaca too. I even knit socks with it once and love to wear my alpaca socks. They said it couldn't be done--or shouldn't, something like that! Beatles,as always, is precious on his leash!!

What a lovely contrast of seasons in your back yard.

I loved seeing the contrast of seasons in your yard too. Very nice pictures! I like that Beatles wandered into a photo too.

I see on your newly designed page that you have stayed off the Coca Cola for nearly two months! Way to go!! Keep it up!
