And the winner is...

Hopefully some of you have been waiting with baited breath to find out who the winner of my first-ever blog contest is.

Here are the names in the bowl, ready to be drawn from:
that's a helmet bowl from Campbell Pottery

My lovely assistant draws a slip of paper from the bowl:
lovely, isn't he?

And the winner is...
yay!

Holly (hollyboc), please email me at jennylrae(at)juno(dot)com with a mailing address to receive your prize! Seriously, thank you to all of you who commented, and to any of you who read the blog. It's nice to know that I am not just talking to myself (well, here, anyway).

Last weekend, Mark and I went to Middleburg and Leesburg, Virginia. While we were there, I persuaded him to check out a knitting shop in Middleburg called Hunt Country Yarns:
check out the cute sheep in the front

This was a small, yet jam-packed store that I enjoyed visiting. While I was there, I picked up some more Diakeito Diamusse Fine to add to the sock yarn stash:
Mark chose the color

and some absolutely luscious Manos del Uruguay for a hat sometime in the future:
yum.

Diakeito sock #1 is now finished, save for stitching up the toe. And Green Gable? That progress shot can be seen in the previous post. That's right, I haven't started it yet. Yet.

Sluuuurp! Sorry, I was drooling over that Manos!

Now, where can I get me one of those adorable sheep they had outside the store?
