300 Post Contest Winners!

Wow, that only took 4 hours! I checked and double checked to make sure each comment, link, and tip were registered on my spreadsheet. There were 87 legitimate comments, and the RGN chose #75. The winner of the 1st choice of prizes is:
Cindy, The Yarn Nut! Cindy, please email me your choice of the yarn prize from this post, along with your snail mail info, to me at
Now, for the other winners:
From those that linked to my contest on their blog, out of 30 links lucky #13 was chosen, and that is:
Ellen at Knit/Pickin'!
From those that sent referrals my way, out of 28 referrals, #7 was chosen, and that is:
Grace at Lovin' Comfort Knits!
From the tips and tricks that were shared, out of 58 that were entered, #26 was chosen, and that is:
Jersey Jessie!
Girls, after Cindy makes her choice, which I hope will be soon, the 3 of you will get to choose your prize from the 3 left, in the order of your comment left here or in an email to me.
But, there's more! I've got some bonus prizes for 2 more people.
In all, there were 208 entries, so RNG picked #150, and that is:
Donna Lee at What You Think on Grows! Donna please email me your info so I can send your prize out!
And finally, I said I was going to pick a winner from my favorite tip or trick shared. Well, that proved harder that I thought it would be, you all left some good ones. Actually, I copied and pasted each one with credit to each of you on a word document for use in a future post, it will be a long one: it's 7 pages! Wowza. Where was I? Oh favorite tip. I can't choose just one. So, I am going to choose the one the made me laugh out loud and nod my head in agreement. I like me some good wine. The person who left this tip: "Stop knitting after the second or third glass of wine. You'll cry less the next day." was:
Rita of Keeping Knit Simple! Rita, email me with your info for your bonus prize!

So, that's it. This was really fun. I have a whole list of new blogs to visit. I really do enjoy seeing all your creations and parts of your lives you blog about. I wish everyone could have been a winner, but that would have depleted my yarn stash. Or, maybe not, heh heh. Thanks to all for entering. I'll do another contest 2yr blogerversary is in 4 months!
Keep on knitting, and have a wonderful Sunday!
