Apologies for the delay! We've been busy bees preparing for the San Diego Yarn Crawl, but this week we tabulated all the entries, rated and randomized our selections, and we're thrilled to announce the winners of our Birthday Giveaway OF DOOM! Prizes will be dropped in the mail this week. If you are listed as a winner below, no need to take any action, aside from waiting patiently beside your mailbox (pattern copies will be delivered digitally in just a few moments). If you need a reminder, the prizes are listed here.
Thanks to EVERYONE who participated! It was really delightful to see and hear so many kind things said about our yarn!
Without further ado...
You couldn’t go wrong with these IRonMan2 Socks! Knit these up in some Misplaced Marbles and make yourself squeal with delight!
PRIZE B: FARADAY SOCKS
Let's hope Ravelry user crazychick1226 likes pink socks! She certainly seems to be far less prone to start-itis and second-sock-syndrome (or at least, better at knitting monogamously) than I am, and her Hermione's Everyday Socks are absolutely stunning!:
I’m the type to love what I’m working on. I’ve been stitching away at my Hibiscus Kiss socks for a few months…. hope to finish with in a couple days! (Took this progress photo just now)
I have a problem, I picked up a skein of Zoot Suit Riot, which I so love. But when my husband saw it, he claimed it for himself! ! He said he wants socks out of it. Now, how can I deny a supportive husband who loves yarn? Guess I need to get some more. .. :)
PRIZE C: KWOLEK
Twitter user Marie has known about Oink Pigments since we first started dyeing:
PRIZE D: BABY VALENTINE
Commentator larajf had some lovely things to say about us on our giveaway blog post:
Congratulations! Staying in business 5 years is an impressive accomplishment...especially fiber related.
I got sucked into your booth at Stitches West because of the unusual colors that worked really well together. And then I bought based on the name. And I keep coming back because I enjoyed chatting with you two. I bought a bunch for my daughter too who loves to wind the yarn & then admire it pondering her next move. This year when I come by, I will have the polo sweater knit in Mermaid's Tears and be looking finer than fine :-)
PRIZE F: LACE & SCARF
Stephanie B. filled out our Prize Form and the random number machine selected her for this delightful prize.
PRIZE H: CITROEN PETIT
Mailing list member Deborah P. was chosen by the random number generator as our mailing list prize winner!
PRIZE J: CITROEN GRAND
Facebook user Faith could always use this gorgeous yarn to make a wee sweater for a tiny human.
LYS PRIZE: THREE BAGS FULL
There were so many very-loved shops (if you're anything like us, you have an impossible time picking favourites), but the winner of three giant and beautiful mystery grab bags is 3 Kittens Needle Arts in Mendota Heights, MN. We'll be contacting all the shops that were nominated to offer them free shipping on their next order from us.
