First, I must say I'm completely overwhelmed by how many people participated in my contest! Thanks everyone for stopping by! Good thing I'm used to my usual 2-3 comments a day, or this could all go to my head :)

So, the winner, chosen by random number generation is Ali from Texas! I hope she really enjoys her prize! (Ali, I'm sending you an email as soon as I finish this post, so look for that this morning).

So, now that all the excitement is over, what next? Well, today I'm putting the final touches on my last 3 custom toys before the holidays. Usually I make custom items in the order that they're requested, but these three were all commissioned around the same time, so I decided it was only fair to have them all done the same day. Besides, there's something so fun about getting all the pieces ready, and then having 3 finished toys for a couple hours work.

Oh, and I'll nag Mr. Mitten tonight about the Santa Reindeer pattern, so he will get that all done for you. One of these days I should get him to teach me how to use the publishing software, but it's rather different from a word-processor, and rather more complicated. I like sticking to the designing and knitting parts :)

I don't blame you for not wanting to learn the new software. It is my experience that once you learn it, it's YOUR job!
