And the Winner Is....

Cheryl:) ! Cheryl, I left a comment on your blog - please email me so that we can get you the winnings!! Congratulations!! (also, as a side note - it appears that Cheryl is having a bad day. I bet she would appreciate some extra comments to chear her)

Jody asked what MY answers to the questions would be, so here goes:
1. Most loved handknit: My Clapotis (rav link). It is over-sized and warm, and it almost makes super cold days worthwhile. Close second is my Roman-Earflap Hat. I wear this thing constantly.
2. I most enjoyed knitting: My ZigZag Stripes Chevron Scarf (rav link). The colors are so pretty, the pattern is so simple, and I loved every minute of it.

On a much more somber note:

I meant to pick the winner over the weekend, but - as tends to happen- life got in the way. We've had a rough go of things chez tightlywound these past few days. A day of local skiing took a downward turn (horribly bad pun not intended), resulting in multiple emergency rooms, an extended hospital stay, and what will eventually be a very long road to recovery for TD's father, who sustained a very serious shoulder injury.

TD and I have been neither sufficiently rested nor caffeinnated since the accident. Fine for me, as I can review documents on minimal sleep (and there is ample coffee available at work). Less fine for TD, who takes the PA bar exam in less than 8 days.

Please send us warm thoughts.

Oh no. I hope all goes well with the recovery. And good luck to TD on the bar exam--my sister and her husband are moving to PA in June, and it's comforting to know there's another lawyer to help keep things orderly! :)

Oh my, be encouraged. I hope he recovers soon and TD does well on his exam.

Oh I'm entirely jealous! I got here too late. I'm so happy for Cheryl, though -- she's a great friend! And I hope TD's father recovers quickly. Best wishes!!
