My Creative Space, and giveaway winners!!

Well i did it!!!!!!! and with 12 to spare! i cannot believe i have had an extra 32 followers since this time last week, you guys are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

Julia over at Just One WIP generated 7 of those all by herself by pimping me out on Ravelry and her Facebook and Julia it paid off!!! You are one of the winners!!! I drew your name first too (thanks to random.org) so you get to choose which skein you would like first.

Rachel (xmasangels) was the second winner so congratulations to both of you!!!!!! Rachel and Julia could you either PM me ( on TNN) or send me an email with your details please and i will get these beauty's into the mail!

I thought it was hilarious that you are both TNN ( thenappynetwork for those who have no idea what i am talking about haha) members, and i even drew two more names after yours just to see and yup, two more TNNers haha, lovely to see so many of you supporting me :)

right onto the yarn!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man oh man was it hard to dye this yarn!!! it took AGES for the yarn to absorb the dye and then when it did it just sucked it all up and it hardly made a difference. i had to use ALOT of dye and still the colours are quite "dull" and not nearly as vivid as i was going for. They still look great mind you, just not quite what i was trying to do.

I went with blues and purples, and pinks and greys in the end :) Both would make beautiful shawls i think, but then again I'm a bit biased don't you think? haha
