This is my very first completed adult-sized sweater. Thanks to my mom for being a great photographer. Yee haw! I can't wait until it gets cold enough to wear it. I mean, until it gets cold enough to wear it ALL THE TIME. ahem.
So, the blog is officially two years old, and I'm officially another year older ('bout time I made my very own birthday sweater, no?), and it's time for a contest.
Okay, the real reason I need to have a contest is because I did very poorly on my sock challenge during the month of September. Not only did I buy sock yarn, but I did not finish my September socks. I did get past the heel of the second one, and I'm almost done with the gusset decreases, so I'm on the way. But it's still not done. So... the contest.
All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post. I'll use a random number generator to choose the winners. There are four prizes, which means there will be four winners. All of the prizes came from my sock yarn stash.
Top Left: Regia Color, 4 fadig, 75% new wool, 25% polyamide, two 50g balls.
Top Right: Brown Sheep Wildfoote, 75% washable wool, 25% nylon, two 50g balls, color: elderberry.
Bottom Left: Opal, 75% virgin wool, 25% polyamide, one 100g ball.
Bottom Right: Austermann Step, 75% virgin wool, 25% nylon, with aloe vera and jojoba oil, one 100g ball.
You can post comments through midnight one week from now: October 10. I'll announce the winners on October 11. Think of it as my birthday gift to you.
Oh, and just to make it interesting, the first winner gets their pick of the four. The second winner gets their pick of the remaining three. The third winner gets their pick of the last two. And the fourth winner gets an extra surprise.
