How about we give out some prizes??

You heard it here first . . . It's Prize Day!!! Things aren't going exactly as planned, but I don't want to wait another day to announce the winners. I have a great picture of all the prizes piled together, but I can't get my computer to recognize the USB cable so I can't post it. I also have three prizes that have not been added to the prize blog, but I can't upload those pictures either. I haven't even had time to notify all the winners by e-mail, I'll probably have to do that tomorrow. But I'm not going to let that stop me from the moment you've all been waiting for. So, without any further ado, the winners are . . .

Keohinani wins the Pansy sock yarn donated by Christine.
Heidi of But Mom . . . wins the Daisy yarn donated by Scout.
Michelle of Me & My Girl Productions wins the big Cherry Tree Hill ball donated by Kimberly.
MissyJoon wins the beautiful sock yarn donated by Kirsten.
Heather of the ADD Knitter wins the lovely handspun skeins donated by Kelly.
Affinity Laura wins the Harlots Peacock yarn donated by Susie.
Kathy of A Vast Amount of Spare Time wins the Tahaki yarn donated by Nancy.
Cario Kate wins the Gettin' Knit Together Kit I've donated. (Not pictured on the prize blog yet.)
Denise, who I believe is blogless, wins a spicy bunch of goodies donated by Melissa. (Not pictured on the prize blog yet.)
I Think I'm Gonna Purl Casey wins some soft, beautiful yarn Katt donated all the way from Australia!! (Not pictured on the prize blog yet.)
Random Fibers Elizabeth wins a project bag and stitch markers made by me!! (Not pictured on the prize blog yet - not even made yet, so e-mail me your color preferences!!)

I decided to hold a separate drawing for those who donated prizes to the pool. Scout and Katt are the two winners, and will be receiving something pretty and fibery from Rhinebeck! (Ladies, please give me some idea of what kind of yarn or other knitting accessory you might be wishing for.)

I apologize again that this post didn't go quite the way I had planned, but hopefully I can upload some pictures tomorrow. Again, I'd like to thank each of you who supported me by making pledges, donating prizes, or just commenting and e-mailing to cheer me on. Your support has meant more to me than you could know!! To all the prize winners, I will be sending e-mails tomorrow (I hope!!), but if you've read this please feel free to e-mail your address on over.

diabetes affects a lot of people. upping the awareness and support does wonders for progress toward a cure, as well as enriches the lives of everyone who has to deal with it. i'm happy that your walk for diabetes campaign was such a success! woo hoo! and i'm not gonna lie: i'd been straight up drooling all over that Christine's yarn since you posted it to the prize blog. Thank you sooo much, Christine & Karen!
