today is the big day! prizes galore ladies!!! to all you sewers out there bear with me...today and tomorrow will be knitting related and then we are back to normal :) don't worry, i haven't forgotten about you all my lovelies!
so who are the big winners? well before i started drawing names (via random.org) i decided to hand out one special "bonus" prize to the knitter who finished first. her sweater is gorgeous and she did a fabulous job. she not only made & finished the first sweater she also made another one in sock yarn..can we say hello small needles?!..all this while working on other knitting projects as well. you go girl! how can i not give her a prize? so....who is she?

sandra from the blog "three pumpkins little" is our bonus winner! yay sandra! you have won the following:
prize: set of 6 hard copy knitting patterns from never not knitting | 2- mug hugs from nook | 1-knitting bag from passionate design
now onto the rest of the prizes. this was tough. i toyed with many different ways of handing these prizes out and decided to go with the simple and very fair method with no voting - random.org. i think all of you who participated did a great job and i couldn't bear to hand out prizes based on personal taste or aesthetic etc...so i hope this seems fair for all involved in the kal. i drew for 4 prize packs and the winner's are.....
