A Prize? I didn't even know there was a contest!

In my last post I showed you my Mystery Yarn Ball from my swap pal, Robbbie, on my Whoduknit Group and the really cute mug cozy I made with the yarn and the pattern.

This was the yarn ball I sent to my pal, Bonnie. Now, technically everything was supposed to be wrapped inside the yarn (and I made the rules!) But since there were a few strands of yarn wrapped around the hat I decided it was legal (and like I said, I make the rules!). That's a pink Red Sox hat in case you can't tell - and NO, she is NOT a Yankee fan! She is actually a Red Sox Fan. After she knit the drawstring bag from the mystery pattern I sent, using the purple yarn, these goodies fell out, including a small ball of lace yarn, which she used to knit the Cat's Paw scarf. Did I tell you she loves cats? That was pretty much the theme of the yarn ball. I had so much fun putting this mystery yarn ball together for her!

So, anyway - here is the finished lace scarf (I cut off your head Bonnie, only because I didn't have permission from you to post your photo!) And today - look what I received in the mail from Bonnie! A prize for putting the best Mystery Yarn Ball together. Now like I said, I make the rules - and I didn't even know there was a prize for the best mystery ball! LOL

There are two balls of Regia Galaxy sock yarn - great colors since I wear a lot of brown. And a beautiful skein of what looks like hand-dyed yarn in absolutely gorgeous colors! And, can you see the adorable little lamb? Thank you Bonnie! And thanks again Robbie. This was a great swap!
