What's better than yarn in the mail?

FREE yarn in the mail, of course!! Last month I entered a little contest over that the KnitPicks blog. It was really quite easy. All I had to do was leave a comment telling them which of three patterns from the Winter Knitty I'd be most interested in knitting. I left my comment and forgot about it - until I received an e-mail informing me that I won!!

Last week, a free sweaters worth of Swish Superwash arrived in my mailbox. As per Heide's request for more pictures of K.C., she helped show off some of the new yarn.  (We didn't open the sealed bag of 10 that I also received.)


This is destined to become Amused by Jordana Paige.

"What are these things?"
"Ooooh, this stuff is soft."
"Please, paparazzi, no more photos today."
"Modeling is very hard work."

So yes, my stash is now even larger. But this addition comes along guilt free! Thanks, Knit Picks!!

I'm glad you stopped by and left a comment. Since getting our computer back i have gotten "lost" on-line. i don't know how or where to go next! you reminded me that bloglines would be a good place to start! I've missed so much but can't wait to catch up!

fate has smiled on you for both the yarn and the model! most sincere congrats on the winning of the contest! my house looks like a yarn barn, but there is always room for one more skein and if it came free of charge--well, how you gonna beat that with six sticks and a cane?

Heide said...

Oooh, Cute kitty pictures! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've never seen that pattern before, but now I want to make one too. Congratulations on winning the fabulous stash enhancement.

bmom said...
