A Win! (or two) – and one for you

EDIT: with 2 hrs left to go, there were 36 entries. SO much interest that I am adding a mystery consolation prize! Hurry up and put your name forward

I pulled off two prizes inthe Ravelry Colourmart Lovers Group competition. My Annis got best accessory

A winner!

and I apparently also knitted myself into Most Prolific Member status.

To celebrate and to pass on my good fortune, I am giving my Annis away. Comment here or on Rav, email, Rav PM or twitter – I don’t mind which, but be quick if you would like it. I’ll draw a name tomorrow morning (10:00 BST)

Will post anywhere in the world and am happy to send to a third party that you might nominate.

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry.
