alpaca pattern winner

Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment for the giveaway! It was rather fun reading how much everyone loves alpacas. I haven't had much real-life exposure to them, but my friend's enthusiasm was enough to inspire me to design one.

The winner, chosen by a random number generator, is Melerie:
I love these photos. Love Angela Alpaca's hair - her most endearing feature. I just started to work with Alpaca wool and I love it. I'm a big softie so of course all wool I choose has to be soft, and this was surprisingly easy to work with. I think I would make it for my friend Angela. I know you named her after your friend so it seems fitting I would make one for mine...
Congratulations! I think I even still have your email, so I'll be sending a copy of the pattern to you as soon as I'm done here.

For those of you who might still like the pattern, it is available on Etsy and Ravelry. I can't wait to see other knitter's alpacas turning up on Ravelry!

Although I am a sullen and rotten loser, I'm very glad Melanie won this pattern, especially because she thought the hair was the most endearing feature, because that observation endeared her to me. I am beginning to think that random generators, not just Blogger alone, hate me and eschew me. A dismal thought. But, oh, well. I get to read your blog, that's prize enough.

I love your fuzzy kritters! Right now I am knitting your Chipmunk and am wondering where do you get the nice black eyes? Many thanks :) Diane
