Yes, I am screaming! I’m really excited that I have won … and a bit intimidated that my creation-to-be is going to be “judged” by my peers! Here’s the story …

A long time ago (or so it seems) I wrote a comment on the Koigu Facebook page because they were having a giveaway of skeinlettes of Koigu yarn … I said I thought it would make a great rolled neck sweater for my nine pound shih tsu, Lola. (The truth!) I had no idea what the yardage would be but felt pretty sure I could figure something out. A sweater that would bring out her inner Diva!

Well … apparently the original winners or runners up didn’t contact JBW and they chose a couple of new winners. Yesterday I got an email from Bethany at Jimmy Beans Wool (careful when you click on this link … you may get lost in their website like I do!) Here’s the text of the email:

Congratulations Koigu Skeinlette Winners!

Thanks for getting in touch with your snail mail addresses. I will be sending out the Koigu tomorrow, so get ready to squeal with excitement!!

Here’s the timeline for the rest of the contest:

  • December 28th- I will send out the skeinlettes
  • sometime BEFORE January 18th, 2011- You must send me 3 pictures OR your proposed design worked up so I can post them on our blog for the voting contest which will start January 24th. 
  • Winner will be picked and announced on January 31st.
  • I will send the winner 3 full hanks of Koigu KPPPM. 

Are you ladies super excited?? Please let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!
OMG! The yarn is in the mail! Step aside all WIPs, mama’s going to create a sassy diva sweater with a roll collar for little miss Lola … who hates clothes, by the way! I’ll post some photos as soon as it arrives!
How cool is that!?
