Until Madrona, it was pretty much the only thing I'd ever won. It was some sort of tennis shindig and winning it meant I was out of the running for the really good prizes, like free lessons. I brought it home to DD which made me look awesome, so not a total loss.
I won this in a drawing at Madrona:
I showed it in an earlier post that was done on my iPhone. I still haven't gotten the hang of mobile blogging--none of my formatting shows up--so it's a really crappy post.

Ann McClure, of The Adventures of Traveling Ann fame, has a lovely pair of socks featured in this book: Eyelet and Feather Socks. And no, I'm not giving away this copy. It's mine, all mine. There are 101 patterns in this book, all of which use my favorite weight of yarn, sock yarn. Seriously, you want this book. But you can't have mine. I'm hoping I'll meet Ann some day and she'll autograph it for me.
I will leave you with a screen shot I took of an online 8 ball:
Ahem. More on this later.
