Time to give away some sock yarn! Oh, how exciting!
I have once again used the Random List Generator, one of my most favorite web applications ever. It’s the equivalent of drawing names out of a hat, but with that extra geek cred I’m always looking for.
And the winners are:
OK ladies, now you have a choice to make. Leave me a comment and either let me know what your color preference is, or leave it all up to chance. I’ll find something in the stash to suit you, or I’ll plug it into the randomizer again, the same way I pick my sock projects.
Thanks to all who entered, you’ve touched my heart.
Now for a Public Service Announcement:
I trimmed down my roses this weekend. It was time; in fact it was probably past time. My best friend dragged herself up from her sickbed to supervise and offer advice. We decided that one particularly thick cane needed to be cut, and she offered me her loppers.
“No need,” I insisted, “these secateurs are very sharp!”
Well yes, they were sharp. But the point of loppers is that they have those lovely long handles, which provide lots of leverage and make the job both quicker and less painful on your hands.
My right hand has been swollen and sore for two days now. It’s not so bad that I can’t knit or type (thank goodness) but it is uncomfortable.
So, if your best friend, who happens to be a former landscape professional, offers you the use of a pair of loppers, I would strongly recommend that you say, “Yes, please!”
