Tidying up

I know it’s been a while since the Bike Rally ended, and I’m not really sure what happened to the time in between then and now, but I’ve still got gifts to give away and emails to answer – so I’m giving part of today over to getting a bunch of that done.

If you emailed me to let me know that you didn’t get an email on how to submit your name, know that I submitted it for you – and I’ll all up to date there. 


A sweet little present, the pattern for Slippy the Cowl will be headed off to Carol S and Suzy H courtesy of author, designer and mother of two year old twins, Joanne Seiff . (I can’t even imagine she has time for anything, once you get the twins in there.)

Susan has donated a gorgeous kit.

It’s her Newport Shawlette pattern, the beautiful hand-dyed yarn to go with it, and all the beads you need. This gorgeous treat will be headed to the home of Kim P.

Everybody wave at Suann!  She’s got nice presents too.  Beautiful sets of silver plated stitch markers, the winners choice from her shop,

and a charming pattern for her Doodle Mittens to go with. 

One combo to each of Susan K, Carolyn S and Emily W.

Next up Genia is clearing out some stash, and a bunch of you are going to be happier as a result.  This skein of STR in Love is going to live with Kathy S.

There’s one in Hard Rock for Sarah B.

A skein of Ms. LaRock for Jennifer R.

It’s Firebird for Helen C.

Happy Go Lucky for Brenda G

and a skein of Lunasea each for both Sage G and Jessie S.

Whew! Genia’s generosity makes for a lot of emails.

Next up, the fabulous Stephanie at Rock Solid Designs has donated a beautiful project bag. 

She’ll be sending that to Ruth T.

There you go! The first of the last (only one or two more rounds I think) and then we’re all caught up. I’ve emailed all the winners. Thanks, as always for the generosity. You’re amazing.

  1. I’m with you on the twins, and I don’t even want to think about triplets, that occur more often naturally in the African continent.
    Beautiful gifts.
    Be happy just coming down after the bike rally. Life will get back to the new normal.

  2. I’m so excited! I never win anything (until now) and my BF is always saying how no good deed goes unpunished….well, sometimes good deeds get rewarded; thank you Genia and Harlot!! The yarn is lovely, and my favorite colors too – the good cause and supporting Team Harlot is its own reward, but this is icing on my cupcake!

  3. Oooo! I love the Doodle mittens! This Christmas the Arizona family is coming to me in Oregon and I’m POUNCING on the opportunity to knit them wooly items. Mittens will abound in this house!
    The Doodle mittens have made the list.

  4. Such lovely gifts! I have friends who had twins, and then 16 months later, triplets. There is definitely no knitting going on in that house. I love, love the shawl with the beads. I can’t imagine ever making a shawl like that, beads or no beads. But some patterns, as you said in one of your books, are the stuff of dreams and meant to inspire us.

  5. Congrats to all the winners. I know I said I hoped I didn’t win any of the freebies, but this round… YUMMM!!

  6. No, not much time at all. 🙂 However, I am trying hard to do some knitting and freelance writing/design work so I don’t completely lose my mind. It is almost as necessary as sleep–but not quite!
    Thanks so much for letting me contribute to your amazing ride and efforts to make the world a better place.

  7. Congrats to the winners! And thank you for all of those who donated the prizes. Most of all, thanks to everyone who donated to the bike rally, and raised money to help such a tremendous cause. Thanks for letting us be a part of it, Steph.

  8. hmmm, I’m a Helen C. on my credit card… but I don’t have email, so I’ll assume that’s a different Helen C.

  9. What a treat for us to see the parade of gifts that you are so happy to re-distribute. Congratulations on meeting the challenges and your successes on this year’s Rally ride.

  10. I asked Tina awhile back if Lunasea’s name had been inspired by the Camel album and song of that name–another fan?! Yes. The lead guitarist/singer was going through a bone marrow transplant, and Tina dyed some of that colorway up for me. I knitted it up for him (we’d met; a friend of mine produced some of their albums, etc, etc) and Andy survived and has thrived since then. I like to think that us fiber artists coming together for him played a small part in that. He had to get better. We were rooting for him, and he could literally feel that.
    I love love love seeing that colorway popping up on your blog!

  11. I hope that that beautiful shawl kit is headed my way. If it is me then I just may bring it to the retreat you are planning at Port Ludlow this November. I am seriously considering the trip. I have even checked flight prices. Waiting to hear more about it.

  12. I hope you make your layette pattern available for sale. It is just so perfect for little boys or girls. I would very much enjoy knitting these beautiful baby gifts. Please share!
