Contest Winners and, finally, some knitting progress

Ooh, aah, aren't you excited?!

Here are the photos of in-process winner selection :)

Congratulations to the two grand prize winners; please e-mail me your mailing addresses so I can send out these packages on Saturday (allisonlgray"at"gmail"dot"com). And to everyone who entered by commenting, thanks so much - congratulations to you for setting and meeting some impressive goals.

My knitting has taken a sudden leap forward, and here is the current state of the back of my silk camisole top from Vintage Knits. I should be able to start the front this week, and then it's time for some (Dun dun dunnnnhhhh) seaming.
Last but not least, I received the final package from my beyond-words wonderful SP8, and it's Wendy! I think I am set to knit socks for life on my bendy blue (yay) needles, and I certainly look fashionable with these great earrings. Thank you so much for everything, Wendy :)

More of "the list"
21. My favorite vacation spot is Lake Tahoe.
22. It may look like I enjoy planning, making lists, and organizing everything, but I get a huge thrill out of spontaneity.
23. Peanut butter and raisins on a banana is my favorite snack.
24. I think Christmas lights are cheerful, and I have some up in my room right now.
25. I haven't owned a TV for 5 years, and I don't miss it.
26. I'm allergic to angora yarn. It's very sad.
27. The city I'd most like to visit is Rome. Florence is a close second.
28. I always try to keep some kind of music in my schedule. At UofC, that's been singing alto in a Div School choir.
29. My first job was as a lifeguarding assistant. I helped teach swim lessons, and I was sometimes in charge of handing out those net clothing bags for people to use in the changing rooms.
30. I want to write a novel.

The blue yarn is lovely. Can't wait to see that knit up ;)

Oh, I wanna go to Tahoe - it sound so serene.

Cngrats Winners!

Good luck on the seeming, I know that finishing is my least favorite part (maybe because I'm not that good at it)
