and the winners are...

...drawn! but i guess i will be evil and write a little bit before i let you know who they are.

i have enjoyed reading all your guesses. some of them were pretty funny! i think one of the funniest was that i knit enough to reduce my stash! i haven't really counted my sock stash lately. i don't think i want to know. you know, ignorance is bliss and i can continue collecting. hey, stitches west market is coming up in 3 weeks!

my secret was outed this week. yes, i designed the first sock for the 2008 rockin' sock club!!!!!!!

tina was more efficient than i imagined that she was going to be and got all those rockin' sock club kits out in the mail in THREE days. normally, she waits a week between the international and the state kits so i thought i had until this week for the kits to start landing in mailboxes all over the world. can you imagine?! "ALL OVER THE WORLD" people are knitting my sock! totally mind-boggling!

i have been keeping this secret since october. it was really hard not to share. i finally got to see the kit colors about 3 weeks ago and was absolutely delighted with what tina had done. and i got MY kit the tuesday that blue moon fiber arts started shipping, so i had a preview. i have had a lot of fun and some anxious moments watching the kits arrive and seeing people's reactions to the pattern and the yarn. most have seemed positive, much to my relief. and "serendipity" made the new and popular patterns list on ravelry today. it is currently #7.

now to the winners. i did the names on papers in a bottle drawing. i put the numbers in another bottle and drew a number after i drew the name. the yarn will be a surprise.

first winner is ........... rachel o who won yarn #2

second winner is...........marcy (knitting golfer) who won yarn #3

and the third winner is.............sjmercure who won yarn #1

if the winners (who all appear to be blogless) would email me ajmcfong AT yahoo DOT com with their addys, i will get these babies out to their new homes.

congrats to all the winners.

ps. you guys would really buy a book of my patterns?! i am totally speechless! thanks for the ego boost!

Congrats to the winners! I didn't know you had desinged the serendipity! I am loving kniting it! Hubby has been laughing at me as i was first doing the heel ( it was a new technique for me to turn it in such a way, used to the old pick up stitches)i was so afraid i was doing it wrong, but kept plugging along and could see it half way through, love it!Congrats to you as well!
