Baby Blanket Winners!

The voting for the 4th of July Baby Blanket Contest has ended and we are so excited to announce the winners.  All the blankets turned out beautifully.  And the winner of the 4th of July Baby Blanket contest, won by a whopping 21 votes, is..............................

#1, knitted by Carrie Cavanaugh
Baby Sylvi Blanket
Designed by the knitter & based on the Sylvi Sweater

And as always, we also have a prize for a voter, drawn at random.  For every vote, your name was put into the "hat" and because of her Blog Vote, the winner of the "Voter's Drawing" is Jenna Ehler.

Carrie won the yarn and pattern book to knit a Debbie Bliss baby sweater and Jenna won a selection of baby yarn.  You may come into the store to receive your prize.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated!  We look forward to seeing more of your projects as we continue our Holiday Path to Knits & Purls.  Check out our website to read more about our current Sock contest.

We know it's HOT outside!  So for the State Fair Contest, we are asking you to knit a much smaller project!  A project that doesn't cover your lap or use bulky yarn!  It's SOCKS!  Watch our friends Opal and Regina as they introduce the next contest.  Then follow all of the links and directions.
