(It seemed so much more fitting to post this on Friday the 13th!)
Or should I say the Winners Are?
... Sal the Slytherin Hedgehog AND the Golden Snitch sweater.
Congratulations to Just a Knit Whit and Jo, our house ghost!
It was an excellent contest and thank you to all the participants and the voters. Ann and I discussed the poll results and Sal seemed to be the popular favorite, but we couldn't ignore the effort of designing and creating an entire sweater in only a couple of months! So we were quite happy to split the award between the two.
Stop by their sites and congratulate them; they did a fantastic job! And, again, thanks to all the participants. The projects were gorgeous!
As far as the winnings- Ann and I discussed the idea of more yarn, needles, knitting knick-knacks, but (thanks to a *charmed* idea of Ann's) decided to go a different route.
And the prize is... a copy of Charmed Knits and the Yarn Harlot's latest Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting . Good reading, ladies! I'll be emailing you both for your home addresses so look out for something from knitter.natter.
What a great contest! Forgive the cheez factor, but, if I could, I'd have given everyone a prize. Maybe if I strike it rich between now and the next contest, eh? ;-)
Can't wait to see what comes in Part Two of this KAL; I've already seen some great projects! And the next prize will be different, so don't think you can expect what's coming....
