Sheepish

I should preface this blog post by stating that I enter a lot of contests - you know all those five-minute surveys they print links for on your receipts and you can be entered to win a gift card or cash prize?  I do those pretty consistently.  Every product giveaway that sounds mildly interesting, every "comment on my blog" contest...I'm there!  I started this campaign last summer as I entered the "slow season" at work - seeing how many contests I could enter per week is apparently the best use of one's time.  Obviously.  I did end up winning some body wash last year, so at least I have something to show for all my efforts. 

The law of averages has yet again bestowed on me a prize - this one's about a hundred times cooler than body wash, though - by leaving a comment on Threadpanda's awesome blog, I won the new eBook from The Sweatshop of Love, Hello Winter!

Is anyone surprised to learn that I've already started a project from the book?  I didn't think so.  As a master justifier of such things, I can assert that casting on for the irresistible Sheep Mittens is totally ok because I finished my Shiatsu Legwarmers (I'll post FO photos as soon as I block those bad boys!) and I'm using yarn from my stash. 

Meanwhile, I think now is a good time to mention that I'm going to be participating in the 2nd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week - it sounds pretty fun!  Basically, I'll be posting every day for a week on specific topics.  It sounds like it's going to be pretty fun, and this is my first year participating, so if anything, it should be a fun experiment!
