WINNER of Month of Mittens Contest (and survey)
No, it's not Ben. LOL! The snow was so cold and wet that he, sadly, had to wear waterproof mittens to play. : (
I've missed you! (big hug)
The winner is Heide!!! I was in awe, not only of her fabulous spinning, but of how many mittens she knit in November! Whoa! And cute, too! See them here, here and here...I even may have missed some, too!
Many thanks and congratulations to everyone who participated in the Month of Mittens Contest! All of your finished (and almost finished) mittens look so fantastic and will be wonderfully warm this winter. I'll definitely be having this contest again next year...it was a great motivation to have a time limit on making mittens. Otherwise, I don't think I'd have finished the ones for my boys.
Participants and Their Mittens:
Jackie with her two adorable pairs of mittens for her kiddies. See them here and here. So cute!
Sarah with her lovely Fleece Stuffed Mitten in progress. You can see it here. They look really warm!
Becca, who has newly moved back to NY. Can't wait to see your mittens!
Heather....whose cashmere mitts for her mom are just luscious!
Julie Noolie with her prolific (and pretty!) mitten knitting here, here and here.
And, Helen, who either posted pics of the mittens for her swap and I missed them or is just waiting to show them. Looking forward to seeing them, Helen!
(Did I miss anyone?)
Heide will be getting a suprise package of yummy yarn as soon as I am able to get out of this snow! (We had a really wonderful snowfall last night and today...see pic of Ben above!) Congratulations, Heide!!!!
I've got one FO and a partial FO to share for the next post and I'm excited to show them to you. One is a knitted sample for the store and the other is a gift for my dad. Both were/are fun and simple to knit, which is always nice during stressful, holiday times.
I will leave you with two very important questions:
What is your FAVORITE show to watch while knitting projects with deadlines? And, if you weren't able to watch tv or movies, do you think you would get things done as quickly?
Can't wait to read your responses! G ; )
