Valentine's Day Contest Winners!!

Ok...yes I realize I said I'd pick winners yesterday didn't happen. :) I've been busy with recovering and well...Valentine's Day. I baked Special K a cake and wrote I (heart) U on it. Of course I thought about taking a picture but did I...ugh NO. Oh well...he appreciated it and as soon as he saw it wanted a piece. Since he is over 10 I said it was ok to have cake for dinner. The doctor looked at my toe today and said it is healing nicely. It the first time I'd seen the actual stitches too and let me tell you my toe is black and blue. OK...I'm just leaving you in suspense.

First off, money is kind of tight with all my medical bills that I decided to use red yarn in my stash for this contest. I hope no one minds because I had so much fun with this contest. Everyone had such great stories and I loved reading them all and being inspired!! I sat down and wrote out everyone's names and put in all the entries into Special K's ribbed Hat. :)

And I picked our winner!!
Kenyetta from Knittykittykat is our grand winner!! Her story is "Cal and I met 16 years ago, when he transferred to my high school. He was in my accounting class, so I buddied up to him. I actually helped him with his classwork and on his test-shhh... All the girls at school wanted him but I got him first!" She wins 2 skeins of Knitpicks Essentials and a package of Kisses.

Since there were so many of you who entered my little contest which was really a spur of the minute idea from Channon. Thanks Channon. :) I decided to pick two other winners but these were picked differently.

Our second winner goes to the person who has been married the longest. Sorry for those of you not married yet, I'm with you but come on she deserves a shout out for being married to her hubby for 35 years...and the winner is Grace Yaskovic of Loving Comfort Knits. Her story is "Tom and I met when I was 15 and a soph in high school, he was 17 and a junior in another school, in another state Our german teachers knew each other and planned a trip to Germany for the two schools. It was 1970 and 16 days, with airfare, hotel and meals was four hundred dollars and ten cents. Tom went with a girlfriend, but one night she wanted to go out with this geeky guy from my school so he asked me to go out with him. Heh we were alone on a dark bus in the Alps and he said I talked to much, so he shut me up the only way he knew how He kissed me. We have been together ever since, it will be 38 years in March, married for 35 of them this year, he is the love my life, I cherish everyday and every kiss I get from him" She wins a skein of Sugar n Cream Yarn and a package of Kisses. She also tied for our third category too.

And our third winner goes to the person who had the most people come to my contest through their blog and that winner is Channon from KnitTea. Her story is "The Knight and I met as toddlers at the firehouse. My dad was the chief. His dad was a new member. He'd chase me around the station. By third grade, we called ourselves "going together." Then, life happened, I moved away. Our families stayed in touch, and eventually, our life-long friendship found a chance at romance. The rest is history..." It's kind of nice she is getting a prize because she encouraged me too. She also gets a skein of Sugar 'n Cream Yarn and a package of Kisses.

Please go by and Congratulate out winners!! I'm sorry the prizes weren't better. I had big plans but with limit budget for fun stuff had to postpone those. But I promise to have another contest when things get better!!

Thank you again for all who joined in the fun. Happy Knitting!!
