Contest Results - Happy New Year !!!
It happens to be Chinese New Year this time around, but it is New Years Eve none-the-less.
And that makes it the perfect time to announce the winners of my New Year's Present contest.
I was so startled when I read the responses to my second contest post and realized that people were completely flummoxed. It was quite odd. I thought I'd picked a question that was fairly easy. I appear to have been wrong. This is one of the responses that I got,
"i've been thinking about this since you posted it originally and i'm either incredibly dense or it's well hidden...oh wait, you said it was in plain sight *rats* my original thought was that someone (peacock?) had gotten you a gorgeous assortment of koigu...but that wouldn't have been "made" for you...unless maybe it was enough colors for a really big charlotte (in other words 'making' a kit...yeah i know...weak) i'm fairly sure that the current photo was NOT the header photo i remember for your site...and of course there's no way to go back and check to see if i was right...it's not much of a guess but did someone make you the header photo for the blog? the only other thing i could think of (looking now) was perhaps something to do with the piggies but you posted that after the original post...argh throwing up my hands in frustration"
I find this so amusing because in this particular email all the correct answers were present in the text, but she wasn't sure enough to just come out and say it! It's also quite cute because I got myself the gorgeous assortment of Koigu for myself as a Christmas present.
The answer to the contest question is that Peacock made me the banner at the top of my blog and figured out how to install it so the corners were rounded and everything. She's wonderful!
So, for the winners: Laurie had the first response and Mia had the first correct response.
And the prizes:
I figured it would be appropriate to give Koigu as the prize when the wonderful present was a picture of a koigu rainbow. The stitchmarkers were made by Peacock and me, the yarn purchased at the Fiber Gallery in Seattle.
