Hi Knitters,
First of all, Happy Father's Day! We are having a quick break in activities surrounding various fathers so I am going to post all fast and furious!
This is just a silly side note. I shared this top on twitter and facebook (come join me on both if you are interested, they are both really fun).

Anyway, I bought this top at Anthropologie a short while ago and have just started wearing it. It's all embroidered and cross-stitched and the straps have these little felt flowers stitched on. I am loving it. I thought you might enjoy it, too. It is so comfy.
On to the jack pot winner... well, soon. I want to share all of the fantastic goodies I've gathered up to send off. The box may look small but here is what's inside:
three Blue Sky Alpacas pattern cards for Brushed Suri Mitts, Cabled Mitts and the Olympic Hat...
two of my Spud & Chloë patterns for the Camp Hoodie and for the Three Brrrrr Bears....
my Blue Sky Alpacas pattern for Hop (This is a fantastic bunny knit in one piece, not one seam, from the toes to the tip of the ears. You should try this toy if you haven't. Click here to purchase:)....
a signed copy of Phoebe's Sweater, the featured item...
13 skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic, one of my favorite baby hat knitting yarns ever...
from the left, one skein of golden Cascade 220 (no tag but brand new), 2 skeins of the luscious Spud & Chloë Sweater in Lipstick, and one skein of Noro Cash Iroha (a cashmere blend that's gorgeous)...

Note: By the way the Sweater yarn above doubled will make the correct gauge for Phoebe's Doll Sweater in the storybook and there is enough yardage.
from the top left, two skeins of Rowan Handknit Cotton in a sunny yellow, seven skeins of purple Rowan All Seasons Cotton (at least a baby sweater's worth), six more mixed skeins of the All Seasons Cotton, another baby knitting favorite of mine...
All together that's:
1 children's book with 3 patterns
6 patterns
13 skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic
1 skein of Cascade 220
2 skeins of Spud & Chloë Sweater
1 skein of Cash Iroha
2 skeins Handknit Cotton (Rowan)
7 skeins purple All Seasons Cotton (Rowan)
6 more mixed skeins of All Seasons Cotton (Rowan)

9 patterns (including the storybook patterns) and 32 skeins of yarn! I told you I wouldn't hold back!

The winner is:

Best wishes to your son as he prepares for college! Always a tough summer in our house, making that transition from high schooler to college kid!
I'd love a chance to win that book for my knitting daughter and her beautiful 12 day old son, Andrew! We all love you, Susan B. Anderson!
