Contest is closed! Thank you to all who entered!
Thank you so much to everyone for all your nice comments throughout this whole selling the house and moving to TX thing. Today at the orthodontist we were trying to fit in all the appointments for Grace's brace removal and retainer fittings and I felt very agitated to realize that we only have 4 more weeks here. And really, that last week has Memorial Day and then the movers come and then we close on the house, so that's going to be kinda busy. I still have not picked up our school portraits from the photographer that we had taken in OCTOBER! I am 7 months behind on tasks and I've got to get ready to leave in 4 weeks?
I better stock up on the Diet Cherry Coke.
I asked for good vibes that we'd sell the house and I promised that when it did sell, I'd give away a skein of Wollmeise sock yarn. Obviously, my blog readers are not messing around when it comes to vibes/prayers/good wishes. Within 3 weeks, we've got a cash buyer. Whoohooo! Mr. Clean and I have broken off our relationship. It wasn't him, it was me. We're trying to stay friends.
I love this yarn and I've been fortunate to successfully emerge from the Wollmeise feeding frenzies a few times and now I've got a nice drawer full of skeins. Plenty of others haven't been lucky enough to try this yarn so it's time for me to pass along some of the love in the form of gorgeous German string. Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be in the running for one of these skeins:
Winner's choice! I hated to presume what the winner might prefer, so he/she can pick (from left to right) Gewitterhimmel, Drachenblut, or Lowenzahn. All are 80/20 superwash. The Drachenblut and the Lowenzahn are medium intensity and I think the Gewitterhimmel might be dark, but it is not labeled as such. It's a blend of deep dark blues. Aren't they all beautiful? And they smell nice, too. Sorry, I already ate the Gummy Bears that come with them.
So what if you are thinking to yourself, "Becca, I am so happy your house is under contract, but I don't knit and I have no use for that crazy Wollmeise stuff." Now, I know that there are some readers that aren't knitters and I hate to leave them out. I appreciate all the great support that has come my way! If you want to be a part of the contest, but don't want yarn, then let me know in the comments. At first I thought I'd offer to knit you a pair of socks from the Wollmeise, but ummm.....no. How about a $35 Amazon gift certificate so you can buy whatever it is you non-knitters buy when you have fun money. May I recommend a knitting book?
Be sure when you leave a comment that you also leave me a way to contact you. Next week, I'll randomly choose a comment. The winning comment gets either one skein of Wollmeise or a $35 Amazon gift certificate.
