Sorry for the delay in announcing winners. The day got derailed this afternoon and evening through a series of unforeseen events. I’m glad I took the extra time to make sure I had all the entries accurate – there were at least three of you who had linked to the contest – and therefore deserved an extra entry into the raffle – whose extra entries I had not recorded. I checked and double-checked the entries for accuracy. There were 124 people who entered, with 654 entries. Thank goodness for random number generators!
The winners are:
Melinda wins the Mmmmmmalabrigo.
Val wins the Socktacular Stuff.
Julie Frick wins the Fantastic Fabric.
Jo Taulbee wins the Lace-a-Licious Sea Silk in Ivory package.
Ingrid Deon wins the Amazon gift certificate.
Elizabeth wins the Lyric Tree package.
Nicola Gaffney wins the Sea Silk in Glacier.
Jean Maples wins the Lorna’s Laces Helen’s Lace.
And we were close, SO close to $2500. Like, $80 from it. Some of you pitched in extra cash at the end to try to get us there. As far as I’m concerned, we’re there. I’m throwing in the extra prize. A $50 gift certificate to Pancake and Lulu’s Etsy shop. I LOVE her stuff. So will Jason, who wins this prize.
Y’all, I’ve said it a lot already but it still doesn’t feel like enough. Thank you. THANK YOU. You have been so kind, so generous, and so compassionate in your donations and your words. I appreciate it so much. It’s a bit sad to me that this raffle is coming to an end, because it has been such fun and so exciting. It was especially sad to me that only a few people could win, though I did try to multiply the yarny goodness so that more people could win.
Thank you, friends, for everything. I am here at the beach this week, remembering last year and celebrating my son’s rescue. I feel like you have been a big part of that celebration. Thank you.
