Last night at knit night we had our Ravelympics awards ceremony. Quite a few folks donated prizes for awards, so many in fact that we had extra and did some bonus drawing! (here's a refresher of my project) So here's what I scored...
1. I won our team category of "Best Use of Color" and my prize was this awesome necklaceI'm pretty excited about it cause I think it will be perfect and versatile for work. Even more importantly it was handmade by Kate, who you can find here at kstarr.etsy.com.
2. We also each got a participation prize - yeah, pretty sweet right? I received these two squishy skeins of Telemark 100% Peruvian Wool.With these two skeins I am envisioning some type of color work, cause navy and cream look awesome together - maybe a hat. But there is also the possibility of felting.
3. Lastly, I was SHOCKED to be drawn for one of the four "just cause" extra prizes. If you know me, you know that I NEVER win drawings, period. Let me just say this, I was once in a drawing for sock yarn. There were five other people, there were three prizes, and I did not win. So here was my extra prize of the night, Yarn Pirate Sock yarn.
This was a great prize because I was just saying that I wanted to make my next pair of socks dark blue! How perfect is that?
I am super stoked about all of my prizes, and we had a fun knit night too (of course). Up next, completed sweater awesomeness (I may be in love.).
