Thanks to everyone who entered the Friday Fiber Giveaway contest; I read all of your heartwarming posts several times, and will come back to them anytime I feel down! The gratefulness and kind deeds people shared show that hundreds and thousands of kind and generous deeds are done for each act of terror. Our Earth and our people are full of beauty, and those moments of joy and appreciation, those relationships, become more dear in times of trouble.


Our winner, Pam M, got to pick any yarn from the Knitcircus Shop and she chose a cheery skein of Aerialist Orange Sorbet as her prize. Congratulations, Pam!


Our paired Boston knitter, Aprilshowers on Ravelry, chose the One of-a-Kind handpaint, Sherwood Forest.

The three winners of the Knitting Recipes: Hats and Cowls e-book are:

You are  all such wonderful people, than you again for your uplifting stories, comments and observations.


Speaking of wonderful people, I had the great good fortune to get to meet and hang out with designer Kate Lemmers last night! She was inducted into the mysteries of the Evil Lair, and helped me wind a couple of skeins, then it was off to the Sow’s Ear for delicious quiche and some yarn shopping. Amy D was even there teaching a class, so we got to catch up with her a little bit, too.

What a treat to get to meet Kate in person; she was just as sweet and funny as I anticipated form her online persona.

Travel safely back home, Kate!
