I'm the winner to have connection with real knitters over the internet. I never would have seen the new trends or pushed my self to go beyond my abilities.
The wool and the sheep will be sent to
http://purlingoaks.typepad.com/. Angie writes a wonderful blog and shares all things Wisconsin.
The stitch markers go to the first blogger I ever read, and the one who introduced me to the Yarn Harlot, local knitting stores and all of the knitting web.
http://lifesastitch.typepad.com/_/ Li lives in North Vancouver. It's about 2 hours away, but I rarely get there now that Mr.Boo doesn't play soccer. She has a great family and knits some marvelous stuff.
These are the first two blogs I always read, at the top of my bookmark list. I'm so happy to let them know how special they are to me. Maybe someday we can have a "meet up".
