This Little Piggie Came to My House

A week or so ago, I won a contest on Mari's Blog. She agreed to make me a little piggie from her lovely collection of Japanese fabrics. Yesterday, you can imagine how excited I was when I got home and a box was at my door.

Inside was the pig and a sweet note telling me Mari had been nice enough to read about me on my blog. She went on to say that she was including some sock yarn because she noticed I love sock yarn and hadn't tried this brand. Isn't that cool?!?!?!

Nature's Palette- Zinfandel

Nature's Palette in Zinfandel. As you know, my camera refuses to take accurate pictures of purple. The yarn is actually a little more earthy than this shows. Its color comes from natural dyes and the depth of color is so pretty. Plus, it's squishy soft. And I love that so much!

Name that Piggie!

And here's my sweet little piggie. He's super, super cute. I love him! Thank you so much, Mari! I love the package. You're so thoughtful and the pig is too cute.

I also found out today that I'm a runner up on Sarah's Blog. And she is nice enough to be sending me a little something. So I think it's time to pay it forward with a little contest of my own!!!!

So here it is.... You'll have until midnight Pacific time on Sunday (10/7) to give my sweet new piggie a name. I'll pick my favorite and the winner will get enough sock yarn to knit a pair of socks. You'll get a pick of colors and maybe brand but the final skein will be a surprise. You can comment here or email me at nelltjeATgmailDOTcom. Good Luck!

He's a very formal looking pig, so his name should be Theodore S. Twillington
