The details: next Monday (4/30) is my birthday, and you get gifts! I'll randomly select two names from everyone who leaves a comment to this post between now and Monday morning (9am pacific time). Winners notified and announced here on Monday!

The prizes: first is a skein of Socks that Rock in the Smokey Topaz colorway. I bought two skeins of this colorway and knit my monkey socks with them. I was going to knit a pair for Tim but have a similar colorway with a bit more color in it called Downpour which I'll use for his.

Second is two hand-wound balls of Mountain Colors Bearfoot in a colorway that I can't remember (it might be Red River or something like that). I also have knit socks with this colorway and have other MCB in the stash so I thought I'd share this great yarn with my blog readers.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! April 30 happens to be my sister's bday, too! I hope that you have a wonderful day! How very kind of you to give away yarn (to me, I hope, I'm such a yarn junkie and in need of a fix, I'm jonesin' for yarn, man....) for your birthday. This tells me that you are a selfless person!
Yummilicious yarns, by the way!

Oh yeah...PICK ME! PICK ME! please, please...I've never won anything, LOL!!

Happy Upcoming Birthday. The yarns are gorgeous!

Happy Birthday wishes from me too!!
I hope that it's a wonderful day & a wonderful year for you Dear Kim!!
When I was in my twenties I had a lovely girlfriend from France. Each year on her birthday she would give a big party with presents for everyone else. She said that she wanted to show gratitude for her dear friends!!
What a grand thing to do! Thanks, just for the thought of it!!

Happy Birthday! I have some smokey topaz too. Maybe I'll copy you and do the Monkey pattern...

And you asked if we love Oregon...the answer is Yes! We had a great time. Love all the green! Our (future) house is in Hillsboro near some parks and it was built in this century (we are excited about that). Can't wait until we move!

Please exempt me from the contest. I am dreading moving my stash across America. :)

So would it be considered extremely bad form for one to begin noting *now*, when one has been lurking for weeks? :)
Happy, Happy Upcoming Birthday!
Or, as the old LRB song goes
Happy Happy Birthday bay-bee
We've got yarn on our my-inds
(oh nuts, I just bowdlerized an Anniversary song, not a birthday song)
Teri said…
Hope you have a splendid Birthday! I just celebrated my birthday too!
