Another prize!

I seem to be having a run of rather good luck recently. Last week I won Knitter Sue's 500 posts giveaway!
The package included a range of different yarns that I've had lots of fun holding and imagining what they might become! I think there's at least 2 pairs of socks here (I haven't managed socks yet, so here's some more motivation!), some baby things, a monkey (that one was obvious), and there's 3 balls of dark crimson and purple mercerised cotton that seems to be screaming out to be made into a jug cover a la M*. Do you ever hold a ball of yarn and try to imagine what it might become? Or is that just me....?!?

There was also a couple of knitting pattern books for children's winter wear (I forgot to include them in the picture). And the coolest knitterly card ever. You can kind of see it, but my photography skills leave a little to be desired. Ahem.

With all of this winning, I'm going to have to have my own giveaway before too long! Fortunately my 100th post is bearing down fast, so that will be a fantastic excuse! I anticipate it will be on within the next week or so. Stay tuned!

Thank you so much Sue. Your generosity has definitely increased my growing stash. I bet my mother will be very jealous!

I am so happy that you loved it all Anna. Your photo looks much better than mine did. I too like to imagine what other people would make with the same ball of yarn and all the ideas are endless arent they but very exciting. Socks arent too hard to make. I have made some with patterns but I still havent managed the magic loop or the toe up ones as yet. One day I will. I cant wait to see what your giveaway will be.
