Juju Challenge Winners!
Well, I was going to use a hat to draw the winners, but there were so many entries, they just wouldn't fit!
A big, huge thank you to EVERYONE who participated in the Hats for Alex Fall Challenge! Thanks to your amazing response, Pam went from 116 hats at the start of the challenge to 381 hats at last count! 381!!!
You people are just so freakin' cool and wonderful and... oh, I can't even begin to describe. So many happy little babies are going to benefit from your efforts! Please, keep on knitting hats and sending them in to Pam. Whether you knit one or twenty-one, each and every one is a much, much appreciated gift.
And now, on to the winners! Since you all rock my world, I will as promised give away both prizes!
Challenge Prize #1
First up is an oh-so-beautiful hank of much-lusted-after Yarn Pirate in Wildflowers. And the winner is...AKKnitter!
Challenge Prize #2
Next up is a set of 12 gorgeous Entrelec Dangle-free Stitch Markers plus two 5" bamboo purse handles. This one goes to...Katie K!
But wait, there's more - thanks to some generous knittyheads, we actually have three more prizes to give away!
Challenge Prize #3, in honor of blu roux's Aunt Olga
The blogless blu roux generously donated two balls of pink Fable Baby Alpaca in honor of her Aunt Olga, who passed away in July. (The last baby hats she knitted were also donated to the Hats for Alex project.) And the winner is... KnitMongrel!
