Drumroll, please!

Well, I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- the response to my latest giveaway is fantastic.....and I thank you all for taking part. One thing I didn't realize until today was that in addition to it being a new year, it's also the start of a new decade. Which totally makes sense in hindsight, since I started hooking in the month before "The New Millenium" and I've now been hooking for 10 years....but I had to read it to know it. Funny that.

Okay, now let's get down to the business of determining the luckiest...

I know I was a little vague in announcing the number of names that I'd draw (I had no idea how many people would participate - and I didn't want to be embarrassed by having more prizes than readers - but do you think 7 is a lucky number? Well, I"m not going to draw 7 prizes....but I will make your odds of winning 1 in 7, and draw four names.... (please pause while I get organized)

What's more fun than a random number generator? Printing off all of the comments! ;-) I printed, ripped, and folded all 28 comments...

And then I randomly selected the winners....

(Click on the picture to read the names...)

If you're one of the lucky four, please send me an e-mail with your mailing address (fisheyerugs AT hotmail DOT com)....and I will pop your wool in the mail. It would be awesome if you could please let me know ASAP -- I'd really like to get them on their way before the postage rates go up on January 11th! ;-)

P.S. I couldn't believe it when Wendie's comment was the first one I pulled out of my wooden bowl! I almost put it back (didn't want it to look like preferential treatment)....but then I remembered our conversation earlier today when she confided that she's never won anything before, apart from some crap prize when she was in grade 8 (or 8 years old? I must pay better attention...). So congratulations friend - you deserve to win just as much as anyone! ;-)
