And we have a winner! (or two)

At 8am this morning I found that 36 people had asked to be placed into the draw for the Annis. I was astounded. To give a better chance of winning, I decided to add in a second prize. Not the same, nor equal, but not completely dissimilar.

This is a Lace Fichu knitted from one of the same yarns used in the Annis, but held single. I think it is a very pretty thing. So much so that I  have a second one in production…

It would appear that I never made an FO post about it, but you can see it on Ravelry here : http://ravel.me/plumbum/ks73z (even if you are not a Ravelry user)

So, you probably want to know who won, don’t you? Now, this is the kind of Show and Tell that I like 🙂

The draw was delayed a little by virtue of the attentions of Scottish and Southern Electricity, who have been scrambling up and down my supply pole for the majority of the morning – they turned off the power supply to allow them to work and thereby prevented me from doing what I ought at 10:00 am.

Thankfully they effected a very speedy repair, and here I am!

The first step was to close Comments on yesterday’s post. We had entries via the blog, Ravelry, Facebook, and Twitter.  I wrote  all the names down. Then mixed them up a bit. After that, I added a pseudo-random ID number to each name. Finally, I asked Random.org to generate me a number between 1 and 36. It came up with 7, which was the number that I had blindly given to Ravelry user mudpudls. Congratulations, Anita – my Annis is yours!

I drew again for the Fichu and number 17 came out. 17 had been allotted to Teresa, who commented here on yesterday’s post. Teresa left an email address, but no blog details to link to.

I shall be in touch with the winners soon.

Commiserations to those who did not win. Keep an eye on the blog for further extravagences – I do like to give things away 🙂

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

    I am overwhelmed with happiness and shock, too. Your Annis shawl is beautiful. I love your use of color and the colors themselves. It is a magnificent shawl. It will be well taken care of and worn with pride. I thank you for your generous kindness, as it is awesome. Wow.

    Thank you so much.
