Good News, Bad News, Contest News

OK, I'm way behind. My contest ended on Sep. 15th and I'm just now getting around to drawing the names for the winners.

The bad news is...

I had a goal of 200 helmet-liners. I received 13. That's OK. It's not really bad news. I'm new and relatively unknown in this blog world we share and I'm happy to receive any!

The good news...

I've added a few extra prizes so everyone gets something! Now those observant people will see that there aren't 13 prizes. Some generous people sent extra liners and they will receive extra presents with their prize. (For pic's of the prizes, go here.)


The Fearless Fibers Wisteria went to BeckyKnitsToo already for being first.

The Fearless Fibers Peppermint Pink goes to Olga.

The Fearless Fibers Sand and Sun goes to My Blogless Rachel H.

The Fearless Fibers Duck Season goes to Throws Like A Girl.

The Knit2Together Book goes to My Blogless Rachel H.'s mom.

The Brown and Pink Bag goes to NoMoreSweaters.

The Black Bag goes to Gail. (Gail, email me with your blog so I can link ya!)

The Loop-D-Loop Book goes to knitnzu.

A Blue Project Bag (not pictured) goes to Nicole H. (email me!)

2 Skeins of Cascade 220 Eggplant Color goes to Janet K. (email me!)

Congratulations everyone! Please email me with your snail mail address and I will send the stuff next week. My email address is Ruth AT 5elementknitr DOT com.

I'll also be sending the helmet-liners next week. My good friend from high school who is an Army Major and stationed in Saudi Arabia has a good friend whose stationed in Iraq. His friend in Iraq is a female Army captain and..... a knitter! So I'll be sending her some knitting goodness along with the liners.

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to avoid their own WIP's and join my little drive. You guys rock! Thanks also, to Fearless Fibers for donating an extra skein to the prize pool.

Touched beyond belief, Ruth!
