Hello Weiner!

It was tough, I gotta be honest with ya. Rarely has a contest of such magnitude been seen in the Blog world. When you're trying to give away a needle felted stitch marker holder, the entries come in in droves. Which is why today, rather than yesterday, we are finally getting around to announcing the weiner in our HUGE EXCITING OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE IT contest. After all, it took me a good two hours just to tabulate the four entries. I am exhausted. Truly. And so, without further ado, let's see what our lucky weiner has won!

Look! It's the needle felted stitch marker! But honestly people, did you really think that was ALL I was going to give away? Shame on you. I work in a yarn store, for Petey Monkey sakes. I have unlimited access to STUFF. So let's see what else our weiner has won. Actually I just like the way "weiner has won" sounds, there really aren't any more prizes. HA! KIDDING!

More prizes! Yay! Our lucky weiner will also be receiving 150 yards of Manos Silk Blend, 30% silk, 70 merino. This is a DK weight and will make a lovely pair of fingerless mitts, IMHO. Or use it for whatever you want, Weiner! Also included in the prize package is "Bella" who was handmade in Thailand using one continuous piece of string! Amazing! According to her tag "Bella makes sure that your life is full of fun folks and wild times." Kinda like my life. And finally, a delightful ladybug tape measure. Congratulations to our Winning Weiner, RONNI!. C'mon down Ronni! Or, alternatively, please send your snail address to for prompt posting of your winning windfall! I'm all about the alliteration this evening.

And of course, it's only right that I should get to have a prize for holding a contest. Which is why I bought some hemp today to make soap sock thingers you know what I mean. Like these. I have a friend who travels a lot so I figured I'd make a few up, toss in some handmade soap from Etsy, and he can throw them in his suitcase. A little nicer than the scratchy faceclothes and teeny soaps you get in most hotels. This is Lanaknits "Hemp For Knitting." Catchy name, no? 150 yards of hempy happiness. OK, enough with the alliteration, already. Help, I can't stop!

    Hey, cute soap sock pattern. Wouldn't it make a great string bag for shopping if super-sized?

    Squeee!!! I'm usually to shy to squee in public but that's just way too awesome a prize to win to not squee. Goodness you are super generous, April! Thank you - address on the way in a minute. I really do have to make sure to get into the shop sometime when you're working to say thanks in person. Not to mention hi.
