Many of you asked if I could PLEASE have Wilma be my random number generator. She was more than happy to oblige. So I printed out all the comments to my Happy Blogiversary post/contest, cut them apart, crumpled them, and dumped them on the ground. Wilma had great fun picking them out.
She pounced, pawed, ran away, came back, repeated the process until finally she picked up one name and took it inside...
... where she preceded to slobber all over it and tear it apart.
But I was able to piece it back together and am happy to announce that the winner of the lovely purple Lorna's Laces sock yarn is: Kim L-S. Congratulations Kim! I'll email you separately to coordinate mailing instructions.
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments and for reading - whether for a few months of for all eight years. I really appreciate it.
