Contest Details

As promised – a birthday contest!!  First up the prizes.  For the spinner winner (hehe) I'm giving away some of my own dyed fiber.  This is almost 4 ounces of BFL dyed with red, blue and brown.  I love this color combo and it should end up making someIl_430xN.48205724 pretty cool yarn.  

Next up for the knitterly prize, also made by me, is some crazy handspun named Rockit.  It is about 270 yards of a bulky-ish thick and thin single.  I love this yarn too, I wasn't so sure about the fiber before spinning but I think it turned out pretty cool after all was said and done.

So that's that!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and let me know whether you want the spinner's or knitter's prize.  This one will be open for only a few days, I'll close the contest on Wednesday night and randomly pick a winner on Thursday morning.

So with that out of the way I'm sure you are just dying to know how I celebrated my birthday right?!  Well I did most of it the day before, Saturday, after a semi-grueling karate belt review.  I'm pretty proud to say that I'm now a yellow belt!  It is only one up from uber newbie, but still!  I had quite the workout and it was kind of tough but I'm really glad I did it and succeeded.  After that we went out for a great dinner at Citris Grill.  I had never been before and I really enjoyed my giant butternut squash fettucini entree and an El Diablo Martini.  I had made myself a white cake for dessert and The Boyfriend topped it off with some tangerine frosting – yum!  That was after The Kiddo grabbed a fistful of cake while it was still cooling because she was 'so hungry'.  What a kid.  I also had a couple too many glasses of wine while watching Kill Bill volume 2 and then called it a night.  That's about it, what can I say?  I'm getting old πŸ˜‰  

Okay, well get to the comments then and have a great day πŸ™‚
