Kitchener Prize Haul!

As I've mentioned before, for the Kitchener Knitter's Fair, our Guild charters a bus. It means all of us get to knit on the way there and back, we talk (a lot!!) and best of all, we have draw prizes! So many people and yarn stores in York Region contribute to this draw, and we thank them all. This year, I was ridiculously lucky...

I won a fabulous book...

a lizard mitten kit...

a fantastic briefcase sized bag from the Knitting Guilds of Canada...

and best of all...

you won't believe this...

but first I have to thank Unwind Yarn House in Newmarket for donating this incredible prize. It was so spectacular, we kept it separate from the regular draw.

That's right. A full Knit Picks options needle set!
And not just the needle kit - a beautiful fabric storage bag for it! I was truly lucky! Okay, admittedly, I bought a ton of tickets for this draw - I really wanted it.

And all this before we even got to Kitchener! Still to come - what I bought there. Susan and I were both planning on not buying much - maybe a pattern or two. That lasted about a half hour, then we both overbought, and enjoyed it!

Fantastic! Overbought? I don't understand this concept. Please explain.

I've got - had - that same bag for years. I purchased it when the K.G.of Canada was in it's heyday. It's a workhorse. You will love it.

Having trouble with Google letting me post. Nonetheless - that's a great bunch of prizes!! Couldn't happen to a nicer knitter.

I'm so jealous! I should have stayed home at mom's just a couple weeks longer. To heck with the kids starting school on time! :P
