Yarn winners announced

This whole giveaway thing has been very exciting and a lot of fun. I haven't won anything, but it's been nice to see some people I know or know of winning stuff! And of course I'm thrilled to bits with all the comments here, and very happy to announce yarn winners!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and to SewMamaSew for running it.

My daughter and I printed  the comments out, cut them up, and put them in her accordion case. She scrummaged them around and then drew them ...

Here are the winners:

No 1. Deeply Green
Nikki at Tales of the red headed devil child
(Cue squeak of delight, as I've been a reader of Nikki's blog for a while)

No 2. Stripy and Bouncy
Penelope at Many sudden enthusiasms
(Penelope - you actually won twice - we drew out both your comments! I'll send a bonus!!!)

No 3. Coloured Wool Overdyed
Kelly at Reclaiming Me
(Kelly - I know you don't knit and were going to give the wool away if you won! I hope you can swap it for something good, and I'll put in a small extra thing too.)

No 4. Purply Blue with Bits
Ruby Star at How Bizarre Ruby Star
(It's been nice to find Ruby's blog - and if you read it you will see she has been on a bit of a winning streak lately!!!)

I'll be emailing you guys for postal addresses soon!

I'm also very happy to have got a couple of great swap offers from Cally and Sharon. Definitely would love to take you both up on them.  And Ruth - I'd be a starter for lemon balm ...

Yusssssssssss. So awesome! I need a boost to get back into knitting again... and this might just be it ;)

Thanks so much Joanna!

Nikki Elisabeth said...

Argh. Wrong spelling of your name. Terribly blog stalker! My apologies!

Ruth said...

Congratulations to the winners! :)

Penelope said...

WOW!!! I can't believe I won something! It's just so gorgeous too! Growing up on a merino farm, you'd think I'd learn to knit earlier, but it's only been recently that I've become obsessed, typically now that we no longer have the farm LOL! Thankyou!

Johanna Knox said...

Yay! Thanks for the replies! - I had hoped to send out this morning, but am stuck at home with a cold :( - will post tomorrow!!

Kelly said...

ooh did I send you my address? memory like a sieve I have!

Johanna Knox said...

Hey Kelly - eek - actually I don't have your address, sorry. You can email me at johanna dot knox at

Penelope, I don't have your address either I don't think, would you be able to email it to me?

Thanks a lot!!!

Kelly said...

all done! Hope you get over your cold ASAP ;)

Kelly said...

Thank you so much Johanna - I love the wool

I think you are very talented and should really look into selling your wool - I'm sure there would be alot of people wanting to buy hand spun wool - and those fragrant sachets mmmmmmmmmm smell so good!
