Competition win



announced she was doing the race for life in June I was more than happy to sponsor her as it supports the great charity Cancer Research UK. I know several people that have battled various types of cancer and sadly not all of them have won the battle, so the more research that can be done to help more people survive in the future can only be a good thing. Anyway Paula was approached by the owner of

Old Maiden Aunt yarns

to offer a couple of prizes in a raffle to those who sponsored her and I was lucky enough to win a skein of yarn. My first choice of colour had been discontinued so I picked another and went with the colourway of Jasper and the package arrived today:

The yarn is just gorgeous and so soft as well as being a really unusual colour and unlike anything I currently have in my stash. I also thought the little packet of sweets and badge were a lovely touch too especially as this was a competition prize. In fact I was very impressed from start to finish as I didn't expect to be able to choose the colour of yarn and to receive the little extras was a great bonus.

Glad you liked it. I love Liith's yarns and they knit up really lovely.
