I thought everyone would like to see what I won for the 6 Month Prize Draw. Anni sent the two skeins of of her wonderful hand-dyed yarn--the purple is Bluefaced Leicester and the blue is superwash merino. Aren't they luscious? I wish I'd had the purple in time for the May socks, but I was out of town until just a couple of days ago, when I retrieved them from the post office. Tama added the stitch counter, a set of 6 pretty beaded stitch markers, and 5 little metal "made with love" tags to attach to special handknit gifts. I'd never seen those before, and I love them. Thank you so much, Tama and Anni, not only for the great prizes, but also and especially for the wonderful sock patterns you provide for us Sockamaniacs. I feel like a winner every month when i see the new pattern posted.
