And the Winners Are...

First I want to say thank you so much to everyone who entered! There were 36 entries. Your guesses ranged from 0 to 53.

But the answer is 19.

Congrats to the CBknits80 who hit the answer right on the nose! (Do you have a blog? I couldn't find it to link it.)

Jen was close at 18. And there was a tie for third with Jo and Chemgrrl coming in at 17 books each. So I'll go up to 4 winners.

I do have to say that Weezalana's entry named all my knitting, sewing, and crochet books. That took some serious stalking on the knitty boards and this blog. So she gets a prize for extra effort!

CBKnits80 gets first pick of the prizes. And I think I've contacted all of you one way or another since blogger doesn't let me email you back from the comments. UGH!

I'm not going to talk about Goals today. There isn't much to tell and I don't want to bore you.

But I will show you what a serious yarn addiction will get you...

Loopie Groupie

I'm a Loopie Groupie! On your 6th order, Sheri hooks you up with an awesome tote, loopy kisses, some Soak samples, and a free skein of yarn! How cool is that?!??!! I'm ignoring the fact that it means I've spent entirely too much money there.

Finally, here's the list of my books if you are interested.

2. Wrap Style by Pam Allen and Ann Budd
3. The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd

My annoyance with Blogger is the reason I'm now using Typepad. :~)

I'd love to be a groupie. I'm just too slow to get any of the rarer things she posts. Someday soon though....

Congrats CBKnits80! :)

Hee. So I would have been right if you had included the crochet and sewing books. At least it was a good guess. :)

Hi I came from Knitting Moose, I have been lurking on the loopy ewe and I think that tote full of beauty just flopped me right over the edge, thanks for that:)

Whoa. All I can say is WHOA! Your yarn choices are amazing! (I'm trying really hard to maintain admiration and not sink down into outright jealousy.)

Yay! I already sent you my mailing address via email. I love winning stuff! So, who do I have to bribe to get a bar of soap included? Email me at jochibi AT yahoo DOT com so we can discuss :)

I hope you enjoy the yarn from the Knittery. Sorry for making you cave - but, I promise that it's worth every single cent!
