The winners for the 1st Blogiversary of Snit n'Knit contest have been chosen, notified and have responded. Congratulations!

Nancy of Days Gone By won the rosy red Cascade yarn with her recommendation of The Bag Lady and the Pro. Two sisters--Anne in Atlanta and Martina in Alaska write this entertaining blog. On Sundays, Anne does the work for us when she lists blogs that we might not know of, keeps us up-to-date with contests and also links to interesting patterns.

Speaking of contests, winner Nancy is running a contest in celebration of her 300th post! Hop on over there and leave a comment.

The Shi Bui yarn will be going to happy2knit for her recommemdation of Sknitty. "Flawless taste, great links and lovely pics" are the reasons why Kendyl wants us to read the blog.

And make sure to check out winner Kendyl's blog, too. I got a good laugh out of her "gorilla sweater" and held my breath while she solved the problem.

I hate using cliches, but gee. . . . all of you who commented and left a link to a blog are winners! I've so enjoyed reading all the new-to-me blogs, that hardly any knitting has happened around here all week.

With every future blog post, I'm going to list some of the recommended and posters' blogs.

Thank you all!

Yay for Nancy! And a neat contest and way to learn about blogs - maybe it's time for another contest at our site :D

Congratulations to the winners of your contest. Sounds like everyone had a good time playing.

Since I last stopped by I have become a Mawmaw again. Baby Caramia was born on Feb. 9 weighing in at 8 lbs. 6 oz. Mommy and baby are doing good.
