Spud & Chloe Winners!

Hi Knitters,
Phew. That was unbelievable. I could hardly keep up these past couple of days. I am going to be short and sweet because I have a tennis potluck to run off to in a couple of minutes. However, I do have some very exciting news. The founder of Blue Sky Alpacas and Spud and Chloe was so touched by your outpouring of excitement that she raised the roof just for you. I am so excited about this.

Instead of 1 winner, I got to select 3 winners!!! I used a random number generator I found on this site to come up with the three numbers for the winners. I also included the 31 email entries I received in the drawing (not everyone is able to leave a comment for various reasons:). The first winner will get the 3 skeins of Spud and Chloe yarn and the printed out Sweet Pea Pattern. The second and third selected winners will each get the same 3 skeins of yarn and an emailed pdf of the Sweet Pea pattern. This is because the printed out pattern is my last copy so I don't have any more to send. The pdf patterns will have to do instead.

You all have until Tuesday, May 26th (extended due to the holiday weekend) to email me your mailing address. If I don't hear from you by Tuesday by noon central time, I will select a new winner in your place. My email is always on the sidebar.

So here it goes!
Winner #1 is Linda in Maine!!! 

Winner #2 is Nancy in Carmel!!! 

Winner #3 is Heather L. at BlackBerryRambles!!!

Congratulations!!!

Now, if you are really disappointed that you didn't win let me point you to another Spud & Chloe yarn giveaway that is going on through the weekend. Take a look here and enter away!! You never know what may happen. Good luck.
Here's a behind the scenes peek at some of my antics earlier today for my new blog. I won't show my feet on the new blog that's just for home. Be sure to sign up to subscribe.

Oy, I need a nap after all of that. It was fun, fun, fun under the sun. It was real, it was cool, it was real cool. I hope and know that you will love your new yarn. You are the most awesome crowd I could ever hope to hang with. Thank you, dear Knitters, you made my week. Totally.

Have a super-duper weekend filled with family and love. I'm out like a light.
best, susie

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow!!! I can't believe I actually won! I've been blogging for almost 2 years and so far have never won a giveaway!!! I am definately NOT a crying person, but I kind of feel like it now! :) I'll send you an email and I've already signed up for your new blog and can't wait to see it. Thank you so much!

I have recently stopped working and am now indulging my love of knitting to my hearts content. I'm relatively new to the amazing internet knitting community and I am spending loads of happy hours clicking around. Your blog is a favorite. My daughter is grown but I will be knitting gifts from Itty Bitty Nursery for years to come. Anyway, I was so sorry to miss the first Spud and Chloe contest. Please enter me in the next go-round. I see what you mean about their colors -- they look completely yummy. You will be a great asset to them.

Thanks, Josie

P.S. This is my very first blog comment ever -- very exciting for me!
