you guys ROCK!!
by sunday afternoon, i was hoping that maaaybe, just maybe, we could all make a combined gift of $500+ dollars to the Bike RIde for MS.
and we DID IT!!! whooopee!
thank you one and all; this was the best Father’s Day season i’ve had in the last couple of years.
here’s the rundown: 18 knitspot readers gave a combined contribution of $382++++ (one plus for each undisclosed donation). that made my own matching gift $180, and i rounded it up to $200, in case anyone’s entry came in at a really late hour.
(yes, the glass is half-full; what are you looking at??)
so now, here’s the part you’ve all been waiting for—but don’t forget—the prizes don’t end here. there’s WAY more swag at claudia’s blog later today!
i put all the names into a (felted, of course) hat, and had david do the honors.
the first skein of Briar Rose “grandma’s blessing” sock yarn goes to
Erica L.! YAY! and the second prize, another skein of this amazing yarn, goes to
Karen K.! double YAY!
i will email each of you to ask for your street address, so that chris (at Briar Rose) can send your yarn out!
congratulations to the two lucky duckies, and to all the winners who participated.
many, many, MANY, thanks!
and don’t forget to mosey over to claudia’s blog later today to see who won what over there!
