And then I saw this blog entry by VeryShannon were all the lovely sweaters and cardigans that had got knit during the Summer Sweater Knitalong 2015 were showcased. I was happy to see that Yannick's sweater was shown as well as the little stripey Playdate I'd knit for my newest niece.
And then I scrolled down to the end of the entry where the winners of the giveaway were listed.
And then I squealed and really freightened Yannick because I acutally saw my name there.
I usually never win anything but here I was, the winner of prize package #1.
So amazing, it still gives me the shivers after all these days.
And today I can show you everything because the last part just arrived:
- pompom magazine for a year - which is great because I love pompom and I always listen to their podcasts and I already knit a few of their patterns (Take Heart, Waterlily and Hitchcock) and I am sure there will be more...
- the Fringe Supply Co Field Bag - I hadn't had a proper bag for my knitting before so I am very happy to travel in style now. So far, I took the bag to the Swiss Mountains, but I am pretty sure this will travel with me pretty much everywhere I'll travel to.
- 7 skeins of Big Sister Yoth Yarn - a yarn I'd been lusting after for a while. I chose Thyme and Hazelnut for my colours and I am pretty sure this will be knit into a Clarke Pullover.
- and last but not at all least 4 skeins of Quarry and 4 Brooklyn Tweed patterns - this was probably the part I was most looking for because that yarn looked so tempting and I have to say it is just as beautiful on my sofa than it was on the pictures online.
