Thank you to everyone who visited my blog in the last month, left comments and congratulations about my blogiversary, and added me as a friend on Ravelry. Although I dragged my heels for years about starting a blog, I have truly enjoyed the last year, especially becoming acquainted with so many wonderful knitters, crocheters and spinners among the nearly 30,000 (!!!) readers in that period.
Because I love to give away patterns, yarn, and prizes in thanks and celebration, I couldn't help myself and after drawing one entry for the grand prize, let the random number generator choose a bonus additional winner for a second free pattern prize package! This person has won the same free patterns as the grand prize winner.
And without further ado, the winners are...
Grand prize yarn and pattern package winner is - Tora Consolo
Surprise bonus pattern prize package winner is - Madam Butterfly
Congratulations to both winners! Tora Consolo you have through Saturday, July 30th, 2011 to message me on Ravelry and I will inform you of how to receive your prizes! Madam Butterfly, I will add the patterns to your Ravelry pattern library automatically.
Thanks again everyone, Check back here on my blog again for more prize events in the future.
I wish to close this post by offering my heartfelt condolences to my Norwegian readers on the terrible tragedy that befell their country this week. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the victims.
Peace, blessings and happy knitting to you.
