I’m a Knit-A-Long Winner

Early this year in January I joined a Knit-a-long (KAL)
with Crissy at Stitched Together.
The hat was fun to knit and back to back cables
made for an interesting design.

If the knitter finished the hat and posted about the KAL,
the knitter’s name was entered into a drawing for a Stitched Together pattern
and stitch markers made by Crissy.
I won the drawing.
I received the pattern of my choice, another hat, by email.
Today when I went to the post office I found a package,
much bigger than was needed for a set of stitch markers.

The package was packed!
I was so surprised. It felt like Christmas morning.

and Posh Yarn, ‘Hannah Another Year Gone’, 400 yards,

I immediately thought of the ocean
I had just visited the week before.

  1. Aw thank you for your kind post. The purse is actually from Namaste and it is designed as a notions purse. It’s not leather but a vegan alternative. I have one of their knitting purses which is a regular purse designed for knitters, so there are no zippers or velcro and there are tonnes of pockets and space for knitting.

    I hope you like the chocolate buttons. I loved them as a child (and still do) they are the classic milk chocolate available everywhere in the UK, so I thought you might like to try it.

    Have fun with all your goodies, I really enjoyed putting the parcel together and I am so pleased you like it.

    • like it alot, thanks again

  2. Wow, what a great package to get!

    • true and such a surprise made my day!
