Remember Alf, that furry alien guy from the '80s? That's where the title for the post came from, but I digress...
Not long ago, Karen had a contest for her 100th post where she picked a name - or actually her daughter picked a name - from all who left a comment. Well, I commented and it was my name that was chosen!
Here's a pic of what I won (colours are pretty accurate): 3 skeins of Knit Picks Parade (not sure of the colourway as it's not given, but there is pink, grey, darker pink, and purple); some Opal yarn (not sure of the colourway, though I think the number might be 1237 but I don't read German so I'm not totally sure...I tried to see if I could find it online but didn't have any success), a purple "I heart knitting" t-shirt that Karen embroidered (using her machine), and a bag of chocolate covered pretzels!! What an awesome package! I can't wait to get into the pretzels and use the yarn. I've never knit with Opal, so I'm really looking forward to that, and seeing the pattern that develops from those pretty colours. I've used the Knit Picks Parade before, and didn't have any complaints with it; I can't wait to use it again!
Thanks so much Karen! I love everything!!
I'll leave a with a pic of miss Tinker Belle inspecting the goodies:
