Thank you to everyone who entered or commented. Everyone’s a winner but we have four actual people who got prizes. I was feeling rather generous... so in addition to the yarn I’m giving two bumperstickers (#1: “I knit so I don’t kill people & #2: “Got balls? Knit”) If you want some of your own clever bumperstickers check on the Naked Sheep’s website.
I will be contacting the winners via e-mail.
1.) We were at Milo McIver State Park on the Clackamas River here in Oregon.
2.) That was the sound of my husband’s wet converse tennis shoes stomping on a river rock.
Now I have to go (turn this computer off) because it’s so damn hot in here and I don’t have air conditioning :(
