CONGRATULATIONS ALL! There are still a few more prizes to come – I’m not sure how many because I haven’t received all of the prizes yet. I might not annouce the rest for a couple of days depending on the mail. Thanks for all the comments on the Knitty article – it was a lot of fun to write and I gotta say – I didn’t realize how emotional it all was for me until I started reading the article out loud to a couple of people. I could barely get through it I was crying so hard. THANK YOU AGAIN for all the good you’ve done. I’m really honored and touched by you all!

Regular posts should resume any day now. I’m super busy – but I’ve got some FANTASTIC ideas to share. Hopefully I’ll be back to regular blogging soon.
