Here's the pretty you could win if your name is drawn tomorrow for the regular December K.A.Y.E. drawing.
Mmm...Cascade handspun. In some color I can't remember, but it's purty!
If your name isn't drawn in December for the regular drawing don't dispair!
You could win the grand mini-stash pictured here:
I laid out all the kindly donated yarn in order to do a photo shoot and I went to go grab the camera.
Only to find it gone.
Freaking Dr. Mad Scientist is his moronic glory took it to work so he could try to take a picture of the New Years Revelers in Times Square.
The man can't remember to grab his cup of coffee in the morning, but leave it to him to remember to steal the camera! D'oh!
Did he learn NOTHING from going to the Times Square Toys R'Us on Black Friday?
I've got bets he isn't even able to surface at Times Square on his way home from work tonight.
So you'll have to settle for a list of the various yarns donated for the grand prize. The colors are all nice--nothing barfy at all.
1 skein Manos Del Uruguay Cotton Stria
1 skein BMFA Socks that Rock Mediumweight 100% superwash wool

1 skein Perchance to Knit 100% handspun superwash merino (sockweight)
I'll also of course throw in a little somethin' somethin' from me too to the grand prize winner.
I want to thank (and pardon me for not linking--I've got to run and pick up the aforementioned moron and my camera from the trainstation in a few mins--but I wanted to get this post up before January 1!):
And I'm pretty sure I'm missing at least one person. I had been keeping good track of who sent what but by about August, I lost track! My apologies!
Now, here's the question: Do I continue this for next year? Or does that take the "magic" out of it. I do love a kosher excuse to hit the yarn store...even if it's not to buy yarn for me! Ha ha!
