First off CONGRATULATIONS to the New Orleans Saints for their first ever trip and win to the Super Bowl. It was one of the best Super Bowl games so far and I don't think anyone, Colts or otherwise really begrudges a win for you and your city. Wish I was closer because you guys really know how to party. :-)
Okay, I'm a few days late on my first blogoversary ( Feb.3), but only because I've been sorting and cleaning out my stash. I had a little party of my own. I got to pet all of my stash yarn and we had a few crazy games of give me that skein back with the dogs. Miss Bea is one stealthy thief! The rest of them could be on America's Dumbest Criminals.
I am giving away batches of yarn. I'll pay for shipping but I ask on the honor system you donate something to your local animal shelter or rescue. It could be toys, food, volunteer time, cash, fostering whatever, but something. I know there is a lot of heartache in the world, but for this one giveaway I am specific that it goes to animals in need. That's it. Leave a comment on this posting, all names are going into a hat and will be pulled out and matched for the basket of yarns in the order they are listed here. First name, first basket, second name, second basket etc....
