Early Christmas Present

I blogged on my writing blog a few months ago about how lucky I am at winning contests, but what I didn't admit was that I had never won a blog contest, which given my luck in regards to other kinds of contests was sort of puzzling. Come on, you are talking to the woman who was thrilled to win the drawing for Elephant Poop yet I can't win a single blog contest.

But my unlucky blog contest streak is over and I finally found my blog contest mojo over at the Melanie Falick and STC Craft blog. So what was my prize? I got to select an STC book, which I have several, like Handknit Holidays
and Weekend Knitting, which I love. But this is the one I've always wanted:

Which has one of my favorite patterns in it, The Luxe Neck Warmer, (Ravelry) which I have made several over the years for Christmas gifts.

And this sweater, which I've always wanted to make:

Thank you so much, Melanie and company!! I couldn't be more thrilled.
