I don't know about you, but I find it surprising that we are at Week 4, which is the Grand Finale so to speak, of
Christmas in July!!!
It makes me a little sad, because I enjoy doing it, and seeing who participates. It's always fun to hear from people that are new, and are commenting for the first time. And it's also fun to learn new things about those you already "know." :-)
In any case, today I have the following for you:
The prize package will also contain some other goodies, which will remain a surprise until I know the recipient has gotten the package. Not that they are so exciting that it's a big secret, but I think that some element of surprise should remain, don't you??
SO - if you would like to be eligible to win this prize, let me know in the comments to this post only what your answers are to these questions, which I decided on based on the two patterns for this yarn:
1. When you were a kid, were you more likely to want to go to the playground, or have your own fun at home in your yard or a friend's yard?
2. In school, did you get better grades in Arts classes (humanities, art, music) or Science classes (sciences, mathematics, statistics)?
Let me know your answers no later than Sunday, July 28th, 2019 by midnight EDT. I'll announce the winner in Monday's post.
IN A RELATED NOTE: I have still not heard a peep from Anne in Virginia, the winner of the Week 1 prize. I realize at this time of year, a lot of people are on vacation, etc., and may forget to check blogs or may not even be able to do so easily. But if I have not heard from her by Sunday at the time listed above, I'll choose another winner for that package. This is primarily because my plan is to take all of the packages to the post office a week from tomorrow, and I want to be sure that I have everyone's names and addresses in advance to have them ready to go. I still hope she will contact me, but if not it seems only fair for someone else who entered that week to have a shot at the prize.
Remember my plan for last weekend to get my Christmas knitting plans sorted? Well, I ended up not feeling that well (headache, severe nausea) because of the heat, and hardly did anything - I didn't even knit a stitch! So I have moved that plan for this weekend, and hopefully I can at least get it started.
I know you were waiting with baited breath to hear about that, huh?
I have also not knit during this whole week, because my formerly broken wrist and the elbow on that side have been bothering me a lot. I have a feeling that last week at work I overdid it, since we had to move a lot of stuff due to an upcoming renovation. I didn't do a whole lot of lifting and moving, but apparently I did enough. So it's been a non-knitting week, and I've been doing more reading instead. Things have improved though, so I should be back to my regular variety of knitting, stitching, and reading by this weekend.
That's it for today - I can't wait to see what you have to say in your answers. Have a good one!
