The Luckiest Knitter in the World

I am claiming this title today, because I got an email last night informing me that I had won Donyale's September Knitpicks Comp!

You could've knocked me down with a feather (although that may have had more to do with the 2 G&Ts that I'd just had) - the last thing I won was the Narre Warren North Pony Club Member of the Year in 1988!

So a huge thankyou to Donnyale! And I 'd like to thank my mum and dad, and my lovely husband for supporting my knitting, and my darling little boy, and my knitting friends, and all the sheep, and...what do you mean time's up? I've only just started.....

Yay you - (and you forgot to thank the producers cameramen and your 5th grade teacher!)

oh it's so exciting. I was bursting with pride when I saw that the winner was someone I actually know. Fabulous outcome for you. You will love them.

And you didn't do a Gwyneth and cry in your speech! I'm disappointed!

I am sitting here, at the computer, with my knitpicks catty. I would say you lucky duck....but I think that it means something very different in Aus as it does in Canada.

Congrats it's a fabulous prize.
