I won a contest! I never win anything. Marianne had a birthday contest on her blog and I was the lucky winner.
She sent me this gorgeous KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud lace weight in beautiful heathery blues and greens. My favorite color combination. It's called Tide Pool, so cool and pretty. It will make a lovely, lacy scarf. And she also sent beautiful stitch markers. The blues go perfectly with the yarn, I may have to knit one in, a la Amelia! Marianne also sent me several other sweet smelling and delicious treats.
Unfortunately those are no longer available for photographs...
But look how pretty this yarn is... So incredibly sweet of her.
Then, the very next day I won a ticket to an orchid show at a garden club raffle. I started to get a little bit full of myself and my luck, and thinking this might be a winning streak, I hurried out and bought a lottery ticket. Alas, the streak was not be.
Thank you Marianne! I am so excited about my new luxurious yarn. I think I want to make something like this. Or this.
