Big thank you to all of you that donated to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer! But I know what you're really asking yourself "who won the hand knit with snot hat?"
I did the drawing this morning and the winner is...
Evil Pharmaceutical Company Matching Funds!!!
Really, that is who won the drawing. So, I picked another name. Maureen M is the lucky winner of a hand knit with snot hat!!!
Congrats Maureen, and again thank you for donating to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer!!
If you feel left out, remember this is an annual event, and I will be hosting the Donor Hat Raffle again next year.
Now on to Knitting News:
Michigan State Grange starts Wednesday. I have entered my Midnight Tomato from No Sheep for You. The category is "apparel" so my sweater is up against everything from hats to mittens to well, crocheted bikinis. Really.
Jackie is entering a really cool scarf, luckily, there is a late minute separate scarf category so we won't be battling it out for blue ribbon.
Scarf: Pattern a day Calendar
Big news though, I have been knitting like a fiend to complete my Poems/Noro bag to enter into the Accessory category. Yes, I WANT A BLUE RIBBON. Not just a Pabst either.
I've entered like 10 years in a row and I've lost to some serious CRAP. Like nasty crocheted headbands. I swear it's rigged. Really. Everyone's related, I just need to get a relative on the judging panel...Grandpa. No, I will not bow down to their level!! Besides, my Midnight Tomato kicks butt!
Bitter much? Yes, bitter much! I slay zombies, raise 3 Pigs, walk to defeat Breast Cancer and lose in knit-crochet contest to headbands? Come on! They didn't even have an ounce of snot or millimeter of zombie part on them, that's not creative! Ugh. There's always next year.
