Lucky, lucky me :)

I just found out that LBNL's sweater is the lucky first place winner in the yarn category of Rachel's Celebrate Color contest over at Stitched in Color, with an amazing 245 votes. Can you see me through your computer screens doing the happy dance?? Yes, I know, awkward and dorky, but heartfelt ;) Thanks to all of you for your kind words and votes!

There were some seriously amazing prizes! Here is my loot:

Let me wipe the drool off of my chin as I introduce you to my new uber-cool knitting bag by Jordana Paige. I currently carry my knitting around in ziplocks, so to say this is a step up is an understatement. Made of gorgeous lapis blue vegan croc leather, it has a zillion well thought out compartments and pockets for all of my knitting necessities. Even some super cool loops to prevent your yarn from tangling! If you want to check out a raving review of this bag, look here. I am going to ROCK this purse....I think I need to find me some new matching shoes, eh? And I am pretty sure I will be using this bag to tote around some of Jordana's patterns....I want this and this for starters :)

Another great project for ze bag? What about this adorable hat by Tanis Fiber Arts?
It comes in 4 "seasons"- this is the winter pattern and colorway. This is well beyond my usual knitting skill level, so I am very excited to take on the challenge!

Last but not least....needles from Knit Picks! These were actually on my Christmas list, so I am soooo pumped to be getting these a little early!

A big thank you again to Rachel and to each of these amazing sponsors. I am thrilled!
