…was my head exploding.  I cannot believe the turnout for this contest!!  Thanks to Carole, Cookie, Margene, Chris, Birdsong, Sairy, Anne and several AWESOME others who blogged, tweeted, plurked and posted on FaceBook we ended up with…brace yourselves…

696 entries.


Unprecedented on this here little bliggity blog.  THANK you ALL for making this one of the best birthday blowouts I’ve had!!

Now, on to why your *really* here today… ;op

The Winners!!

As I replied to all the comments, I entered names, doubled names if they said what bag they liked, entered the name of who sent them, entered if they tweeted, etc.  After all the thanks and the good luck’s were done and entered into my spreadsheet, (yes, I typed them all in, all the while thanking Bill Gates and his minions that they gave Excel the ability to remember previously entered information) I used the number generator from Random.org, told it to pull three numbers between 1 and 696 and it spit out:


Which makes winner number 1:


Sprite!!  woo!! Congrats!!  You won a bag of your choice from what is currently listed in the shop!

Next up, winner number 2:


Cookie!!  woo!!  Congrats!!  You won a skein of your choice from what I have spun during TDF 2009…I’ll make sure to stain it with my tears before I send it on…(or you can pick a bag, whichever floats your boat. ;o) )

Last but certainly not least, winner number 3:


Carole!!  woo!!  Congrats!!  You have won a bag of your choice from what is currently listed in the shop!  (Even with broken RSS feeds (no thanks to her good for nothing friend who clicks stuff that should be left alone *cough*thatwouldbeme*cough* she sent about a billionty people over here.  Definitely the same number as Margene though.  *ahem*)

Thank you all again for playing!!!  You guys made it an AWESOME birthday – my inbox and my twitter exploded!!  yay!  ;o)  If you are going to Sock Summit, please make sure you stop by Karin’s booth (The Periwinkle Sheep #800) to say hi to my bags and her yarn!!  FYI – my shop will be closed that weekend so the only place you can buy my bags during SS is AT SS but it will open again bright and early Monday morning after the convention!

So…now that my arms are going to fall off from all that typing?  I’m going to go spin some more for the Tour…I have to give Cookie a good selection from which to rip my heart out choose! ;op
