You are forgiven. Now you have plenty of time to make next Christmas filled with knits.

Good luck with your essay!

The designer of that book of patterns makes costumes for Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. So, the cover is just right for representing her style. (But it makes me laugh too!)

Thanks Sheldon! I had a wonderful time. Our annual New Years Eve party is one of my favorite things.

Thanks for sharing the fun with us, my friend!

I've put the project information up on Ravelry, complete with pics. It looks like I've done the whole pattern in white but its actually pastel colours they just didn't photograph well.

Great start to the New Year...
Hi!

I just wanted to thank Sandy publicly for hosting such a great party with such wonderful prizes!

I won the Paton's Little Princess book! The funny thing about this is that I have absolutely no baby girls to knit for either in the family or for friends. All our new arrivals have been guys and no new ones are expected! LOL I hope this book doesn't prompt a flood of new babies in the family - my daughter's-in-law would lynch me!!!!!!!!

But it occurred to me that there are lots of baby girls out there who would benefit from having something hand-knit especially for them. We have several hospitals here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Baltimore, which is our closest biggest city, has many huge hospitals, including Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland.

So winning this book inspired me to plan to knit up some pretty projects especially for little ones who might need them, even if I don't know them personally!

Thanks, Sandy, and thanks everyone for being on this great forum.

Happy New Year to all,

Ruthie

I bet you wondered what was going on when you woke up!

Thanks for joining the party last night. It was fun talking to you!

Gosh, I hate when a photo does that with my projects. I'll be SO PROUD of my work, and the photo I take just doesn't show it well at all. Ugh!

Glad you enjoyed the party as much as I did!

Great plan! I do a lot of charity knitting myself, so I'm behind you 100%. It's SO satisfying making things for people who really appreciate them!

Now, I'm busy getting together everyone's info, so I can wrap up packages and mail them out.

I've heard back from more than half of you, but still need to hear from amandapage, tsidel, angelscakes198, Betty613, and Peanutbugmom.

I will wait until February 1st to get your information. If I haven't heard from you by then, I'll have to give your prize to someone else.

Happy New Year, everyone!
