Folks, we have a winner for the beautiful Cornflower blue laceweight yarn hand-dyed by Schafenfreude Fibers:
I counted down to number 57, and it was Carole! Here’s one more peek at the lovely prize yarn:
Congratulations Carole (3strands)!!
Now, I see that the comment count has grown since I ran the random number search, but the Rulez say the cutoff is midnight, so there you have it. But…you folks who commented too late might want to keep an eyeball peeled for the next giveaway.
And since I’m going to SOAR and Rhinebeck where all SORTS of amazing yarn and fiber goodies are to be had, one never knows what the Giveaway Llama will come up with next time.
Of course, if anyone has any requests or ideas or colour prefs, you can leave me a comment. Can’t promise anything, and of course I can’t promise you will win what your preference was, but since I am going to be positively overwhelmed by choices in the next few weeks it’s always good to have a little bit of guidance.
And now for the Lemon…
That’s my adorable, wonderful apple green VW bug (taken last December, clearly!).
Today I drove around the city for a bit, then stopped at the local Walmart on my way home to run another errand. Got out of the Walmart dog-tired…and the car wouldn’t start. Again. For the umpteenth time this season.
We’ve had the battery replaced three times, the sparkplug wires done twice, the tests run and the chins scratched thoughtfully and now, it’s deadibones again.
I’m supposed to drive 8.5 hours to Vermont on Saturday, then 3.5 hours to New Hampshire on Sunday. Then, a week later, I drive an hour and a half to Massachusetts, then a few days after that, I drive several hours to Rhinebeck, then three days later, I drive 9 hours back to my house.
I don’t know if I trust a car that breaks down this much on that kind of trip. ARGH.
We’re looking into car rental costs. BOOOOO.
We’ll see. Maybe a miracle will occur.
Meanwhile, our car is in the hands of the good folk at Canadian Tire. Send them good car fixin’ mojo, would you?
I’m so tired I’m falling asleep here at the keyboard. How about an adorable cat photo to tide you over until the next post?
That is Tim, being Tim. There’s actually a video of him rolling around showing his cute belly (he has a striped vest pocket!), but I’m too tired to do the tech wizardy required to upload it.
Till next time….Maybe my photo assistants will have some really great yarn photos for you then.
