You win some — I win some!

Thanks for all the great button comments. I am still not sure which one I'll choose for this green cardi, I'll be making a blue baby cardi as well (same yarn) and will likely use whichever buttons are left on that!

I used the Internet Random Number Generator to figure out who won the contest for a copy of Yarn Forward, and it is Jae! Jae, if you'll drop me a note with your address via e-mail to valerie [at] grasslimb [dot] com, I'll pop it in the mail to you. Congrats on winning my first blog drawing!

And I won something too — I won one of the prizes in the recent Mainely Rat Rescue fundraising contest. It's a set of rat hammocks. I don't own a rat, but perhaps you do and would like these hammocks? Please e-mail me at the address just noted if you do! I'd like them to have a good home and they sound like great fun for some ratties.

The baby for whom I'm knitting Madeleine (note: the baby, to my knowledge, is not named Madeleine) was born a few hours ago, so I'm knitting like mad. Nothing to show yet, so here's a wildflower from this summer's trip, from Grand Teton National Park.

lol...congrats on winning the hammocks! I bought a set of ten tickets and guess I didn't luck out.

Well...you know I've got ratties, and there's always room for more hammocks. I'd be happy to pay for the shipping if you want. :)

Oh, yes - stunning flower there! Could be a lovely colorway for hand-dyed yarn...

Actually, if you decide the hammocks go to me, we can probably save everyone shipping - Mainely Rat Rescue can get them to me via the volunteers who send rats and supplies around to the fosters. For what it's worth.
