Yarn Giveaway Drawing Winners!

Congratulations and thank you all for participating and donating. For those that didn't win, buck up, neither did the Patriots. But I have a book give-away coming up so maybe you're up for round two?

Without further ado....

Batch #1 goes to Leigh (yellows)

Batch #2 goes to Martha (pinks)

Batch 3 goes to Michelle (orphans)

Batch #4 goes to Peg (silks)

Batch # 5 goes to Restless Knitter (weaver's batch)

My method of choosing was to pick 5 names and note the order they were picked.
The first up had first choice if they stated one and so on.
I will need everyone to contact me with their address so I can get these shipped on out.
My e-mail is available on my profile page to the right. A word about shipping, I am not the fastest. These usually get packed up in bundles as I have time and am planning town trips. It's free but it's not always speedy. Assuming I get your addy in a reasonable amount of time, you should look for your packages to arrive within two weeks.


  1. Theresa, Thank you so much for the yarn - it will be put to good use! Hug Stella and the crew for me.

  2. Congatulation to you for this idea your time and kind ways.

  3. WOO HOO!!!! I'm a WINNER!!! I almost never win anything, so I'm really thrilled. And getting ready to contact my SPCA regarding another donation.

    THANK YOU, thank you, thank you.

  4. Thank-you, Theresa! My lot is perfect; I'll use them to make special, quick-knit gifts! And last week I donated to pet shelters in the two towns nearest me; will also be checking with the county animal control shelter to see what their needs are and contribute.

  5. Congrats to all the winners.
    You have inspired me now to take a beautiful knitting book I have bought to our local knit shop for a raffle with the proceeds going to the rescue shelter.
    Like you said Pay It Forward...
    Thank you.

  6. Oh, Miss Maddie; what a wonderful idea! I received a knitting book in another giveaway that I will NEVER use; I wonder if my LYS would take it and I could donate the proceeds to a shelter? If not, maybe I could sell it on eBay and donate the proceeds.

  7. What a delightful idea! Can I use that?

  8. Leigh as in me??? Oh, I'm so excited. The yellows are absolutely perfect. Just the cheery thing I need with all our subtle winters browns, greens and grays. My donation to Indian Creek Llama Sanctuary is on the way.

  9. Thank you so much! My donation to a local rescue organization has already been made.

  10. Congratulations to the winners and thank you for raising awareness of local vendors!

  11. Congratulations to all! I can't wait to hear/see what you all make with your winnings.

  12. You know, I was thinking about that, Denise, and remembered that one of the local shelters has a gift shop that carries some handmade things. I think most of my winnings will be made into small projects and donated to that shop to support the shelter!
