Thanks to all of you nice blogpals for the very kind well wishes. I wish I could send you all some yarn. Wait, don't look at my Ravelry stash, because technically I could...but I'm on a new 'austerity plan' these days and if I go down financially, it sure as hell isn't going to be on postage. You know I'm probably not taking this new plan very seriously if I already have quotes around it, but supposedly marriage is about compromise and not remaining in a permanent adolescent mode where want and need are collapsed into the same thing. This is what I am told. But you didn't click on this blog to read about all that, now did you?
Peeper-Lou has chosen two winners from the long list of commenters. And she has done so based strictly on geographical location. Being from Alaska has its advantages, and so Alli from Knitosauras is the winner of the Koigu. Check out her blog because she has a pair of Koolhaas hats that are true stunners. The winner of the Lorna's Laces Argyle is Sarah from A Girl's Life, a Minnesota knitblogger and brand new to boot! Show her some love. She was chosen because "she lives near Grandma". Yes, we are parochial around this joint.
Stay tuned for a series of killer FOs, people. If October were sweeps month in blog land, I'd be blowing the lid off the Nielsen ratings! But as "Grandma" says, "...that and a dime will get you a cup of coffee."
