winners!!!!!!

we have winners! for real this time. susan, laura, debi, and i have so enjoyed seeing all your starts and finishes! and as i've mentioned before, you all have definitely added to my to-do list! please feel free to continue posting your holiday (or not) projects for us to see. i think i can still squeeze a couple of more projects on to my list!

now, the moment blogland has been waiting for:

the winner of the
fave cpy project is:

Saturdayknitlive

second place went to breien for her fingerless gloves (project #1) and third place to barbara for her monkey socks (project #7). cathy wins 4 skeins of her choice of crystal palace yarns.

we had susan generate 50 numbers for the drawing. there were 454 entries (100yds/entry) and we knitted/crocheted a combined total of 52,059 yards (and this does not even account for the projects that were started but not finished (it wasn't "ME"!). debi has graciously withdrawn her name from competition; but just to let you all know how generous she is being...she was the winner of the grand prize and her numbers came up at least another 10 times (i think she wins for most yards!). so smoochies to debi from all the people who had the numbers after hers!!!!


the winner of the
grand prize drawing is:

Wow!! Thank you!!! I want to tell you that this Holiday KAL was a great incentive to getting items finished.

Can we keep on doing this--maybe not for prizes--but to post a picture of a started and then finished project?

It's a great incentive!!

Thank you again!!--now off to look at some yarn!!

rita said...

Wow--I am floored! I slid in in the nick of time with the help of the lovely KAL ladies; I never thought that I'd win some YARN!!!

This has been so much fun and so much motivation to get things done. I made a felted cat bed (well, knitted it; it has to be felted) after the KAL ended and have a pair of fingerless mitts next on my list. I'm going to the yarn store today to buy some Panda Silk for them! (And not because of the KAL; I bought some in California this summer and love it!)

Thank you thank you thank you!!!

tapmouse said...

YAY! I'm so excited that I won a prize! Just have to go pick my yarn-I've been up to my ears in school acitivities and work and haven't had a chance to see my options. I'll get my choices in asap!

Thanks for a fun KAL!
