Did I Tell You I Won A Comp?

Well, I did - and this one was a goodie!

It was Brooklynne's Grrrl Shaped Yarns blog competition, just to blog about GSY. And I won!

The prize is a lovely skein of her lovely superwash merino, dyed especially for me and called Jewels (or is it Julia's Jewels? I'm not sure but in a conceited way I love either name because lots of my friends know me as Jules - 'Jewels' sounds the same)

I also received 3 knitpicks fixed circular needles AND Brooklynne's sock pattern

And because I just CAN'T photograph the colour right, I'm going to steal her photo ;) (which it's ok - I've checked with her about)

It's even better IRL

I'm going to use it for a selfish knit to enter her latest comp too - I don't know realistically how much of a chance I have of winning 2 of her comps but hey, I want to knit it up anyway and now seems like a great time.
