I'm a Winner!

Sheri had a contest on her blog a couple weeks ago to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of The Loopy Ewe... and I was one of the winners! (Insert mental image of middle aged woman doing dorky happy dance around the living room.)

My prize arrived today... wanna see?

This cute little canvas tote and a Wendy Johnson sock pattern. (I lurve Wendy's sock patterns.)

and...




wait for it....




wait for it...




my very own skein of...




Wollmeise! (More happy dancing.)

Wollmeise

The colorway is "am kalten Polar" and I couldn't have picked a better color if I had gotten to choose it myself. I. Am. In. Love.

I tried. I did. But there is no way to capture the vibrant colors with my mere mortal camera. I couldn't pick up the deep and blue purple transition colors. But they're there... your just gonna have to believe me.

Wollmeise

I know exactly what I'm going to knit with this yarn too! Empoisonnee from the new Twist Collective. My Ravelympic WIP Wrestling stamina is waning with each passing moment.

One more look. All together now... say "Loopy"!

And remember...

Wow!!! Good for you! Free yarn, and such awesome yarn too!

That is some stellar yarn. In fact, it's so incredibly beautiful that if the Things and I were visiting, I might feel the urge to gasp, "Is that a snake?" so they'd all run and look, dragging you with them, and then the yarn might fall into my bag.

But I'm not. Enjoy, you winner, you!

Omigosh! The Wollmeise is absolutely dreamy. I'm so happy for you.

Laura said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous! Can't wait to see the socks!

Am Kalten Polar is my absolute favorite colorway of Wollmeise!! In fact, even though I have a skein, I want another. That way I can knit with it and still have a skein to admire. What an amazing prize package!! I'm sorry, but I'm afraid you've used up all your luck for a while. :)

I seem to recall that you won something a while back too (could have been a year ago the way time flies) - was it a purse? You must be one of those "lucky" people!
By the way, I saw on Julie's blog --- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I'm sorry this is so belated. I hope it was great!!!
