OK, I was going to post tonight – and I think it would have been a little whiny. I was going to tell you that I think (but I’m not sure) that I messed up Mr. Greenjeans – I think I’m off on increases and stich counts, but you know I’m dreading actually finding out for sure so I haven’t figured it out yet. But I will tonight. And I knew I’d be whiny. How fun for all of you, eh? But good news – something happened to sidetrack me and the blog, so you won’t have to hear me whine tonight (but you probably will later this week). So you are saved!
I got home tonight to find a package in the mail. Earlier this month, Mary-Catherine had a contest on her blog. I commented and didn’t think anything else about it. And then she emailed me that I won! Wow – I don’t think I’ve ever actually won anything! And you should see what she sent me…
Fleece Artist Sea Wool – if you haven’t ever felt this, you need to go find some. Its just amazing. Just gorgeous. I have two pairs of socks going right now (sigh…so much for keeping control over projects) but I am so tempted to start a new pair. The colors are so nice. And it comes with a free pattern (Ravelry link)- gotta love that!
Mary-Catherine’s second prize is a book – it was one of the entries in the Canada Reads contest – Not Wanted on the Voyage. It looks great – I almost can’t wait to go to work tomorrow morning so I can read it on the train. And I’m looking forward to looking at the other entries in this contest – very cool!
I really can’t believe how nice this prize is – totally made my day – even with the “issues” with Mr. Greenjeans and my eye that for some reason looks like I got punched (stupid contacts), I’m sitting here happy and smiling.
OK, I guess I’ll go count the stitches on Mr. Greenjeans….no…maybe I’ll start a pair of socks!
