This weekend was an extremely lucky weekend for me. No, I didn't spend it at the local Casino--I won two independent, craft-related drawings. The first was a drawing for a $20 gift certificate at the Calico Cat quilt shop. They have a frequent shopper punch card program, and the completed punch card go into a monthly drawing. I've entered a number of these drawings, but was totally shocked that I won--quilting has taken a backseat to knitting lately, and I haven't been into the shop much. When I was there a couple of weeks ago, I picked up some great fabrics, I just need to find some time to sew.
The second drawing was from the Holiday Knitting KAL, where yesterday I was among the four Holiday All Star Winners! I really enjoyed this KAL, it definitely made me follow through on my holiday knitting. I won a beautiful ball of sock yarn, it was my favorite of the four possible prizes. Thanks, Alison, for putting this together!
Here's a summary of what I finished for Christmas 2006:
My goal was 8 items, and I ended up finishing the nine items above as well as a two others. Well, one of these was Disco Stu, which I finished in August and forgot to add to my KAL list. Not a bad showing, although I was still surprised that I hadn't done more earlier. Maybe in 2007?
