83 of you left a comment on my Finishing Contest Post and many of you guessed that I would finish both the socks and the mitts. As you know from yesterday’s post, that is indeed what happened. Now I know you want to know who the winner is, right?
So my random number generator chose 21 and the 21st commenter to guess that I would finish both projects was: Dinah! Dinah is a local knitter and spinner and she just happens to be a library director, too. I’m happy to be giving her this:
It’s a skein of Bambie, a brand new superwash merino and bamboo sock yarn from Blue Ridge Yarns.
And I’m afraid that’s all for today. I have a lousy sore throat and cough. I am home from work and my plan is to drink lots of tea and nap. I’m sorry but the Rhinebeck recap is just going to have to wait until tomorrow.
I’m home barking like a dog too, minus the sore throat. And with the Lauren Bacall voice. Feel better soon 🙂
Take good care – Rest well! I think I’m changing my name to Random Number Generator!
Feel better soon! I looked for you this weekend but didn’t see you. I did see Margene running through the parking lot but didn’t get to talk to her either.
Looking forward to seeing your pictures – I left my camera at home by mistake!

Sorry to hear you’ve contracted the “ick” too, Carole. May you have a variety of teas at the ready, and Dale to dash to the store for OTC reinforcements of your choice.
Oh no! You can’t be sick! Take care my friend and get better quickly.

Congratulations to Dinah. Take good care of yourself and feel better soon.
Congrats to Dinah! That’s a lovely skein. Take care of that cold and we’ll hope to see you tomorrow. (I know too well: just thinking about doing the recap can be nearly as tiring as the event.)
I seem to have the same thing a sore throat and cough. Unfortunately I have to still go to work today, but will retire early tonight. Hot water with honey will be my drink for the day, it really soothes my throat. Take Care (I plan to). Blogging sure can wait, your blog is one of the few I checked today.

Take care…I’m feeling the sore throat coming on too~ugh!
Sorry you’re not feeling well. Get better soon!
Oh no, feel better! It’s Sinus Central over here, so I feel your pain. Literally.
I totally feel your pain. I was feeling lousy over the weekend but happily i’m on the upside now. Feel better!
Feel better soon! My personal thing for colds is orange mango juice.

what a prize! I love some of our local librarians too! I think they are part social worker!
Feel better. I’m looking forward to the re-cap — just thinking about all the fun and silly things that happened makes me smile 🙂
Congrats, Dinah! Hope you feel better tomorrow, Carole.
It was great seeing you this weekend, and I hope you feel better soon! (And enjoy your day at home with tea and blankets and napping 🙂
I hope you feel better quickly.
Rest! Take zinc! It’s not fair to come home from a great weekend and get sick!
Wore yourself right out, did you? Hope you feel better soon! I’ll dedicate some of my tea drinking to your health.
Sounds like a good plan; take care of yourself. We can wait for the recap.
so sorry to hear you “gots a coff and codd and a snuffy doz”. I hope you feel much better very soon.
Such beautiful sock yarn – congrats to Dinah 🙂
And to you too – for getting both projects completed, They’re lovely btw.
Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I hope you’re better soon!
Hope you feel better soon. Congrats to Dinah what a great treat.

Take care, and get well soon!
Bless your heart, feel better soon! Can’t wait to live vicariously through your Rhinebeck report. Love the gift yarn! Bambie, cute name.
Hope you feel better soon. Looks like tomorrow will be a good day for napping as well.
Congratulations, Dinah! What a lovely skein of yarn.
Carole, I hope you feel better soon. Ginger tea, maybe?
Rest up and feel better! I have a bit of a Rhinebeck hangover too.
Feel better soon!!
I’m all coughing, too. I fell into bed the minute I got home on Sunday and slept for two hours. I blame the stout. ;op
It was awesome to see you!!!!!!!! (how many exclamation points are too many? hehe)
Oh, no! Get some rest!
Oh crap, hope I wasn’t the one who shared my germs with you! I made it back for our counseling appt Monday at 11, then home to bed. It was good to chat w/ you and the others Saturday night. I didn’t quite get everybody’s names… was it Anne that is from Utah (the one knitting the lace shawl) (as well as Margene)?
congrats to dinah!
a day of rest is the best thing for a cold. take it easy and hope you feel better.
That’s a great prize!
Sorry you’re feeling icky. I’ve noticed quite a few of my friends who attended Rhinebeck are under the weather. I hope you recover quickly and get all the fluids and rest your body needs. Take care.
Your prescription is perfect. I’m sorry you have the cold of the season (everyone has it, or has had it, or soon will have it).
Congrats on getting the mitts and socks finished before RB.
Hope you are feeling better soon!
The yarn looks yummy. 🙂 Rest up and feel better.
