SWS May Challenge Giveaway Winners!

Well, it is officially June and therefore our May Challenge for the Socks with Sarah KAL is officially over. All I can say about the experience is that I have really loved this month. Seeing and hearing how everyone’s experience with a little something new was incredibly inspiring and so much fun. The final tally indicated that about half of our KAL group entered into the giveaway which is just excellent — a huge thank you to everyone who participated! Also, a huge thank you to our generous sponsors — those prizes had us all pining and clicking away!

Now, in the interest of just getting to it, this is going to be a long post. I thought about just listing up the winners, but then I realized being able to see your prizes with your name next to or underneath it would be more exciting. Then I considered doing this in installments, but I could not imagine having to wait a week while I slowly post winners — that would feel painfully slow & slow the process of getting the prizes to their new owners. So. We are just going to pull this band-aid off with one huge post.

 Winners are listed by their Ravelry ID in bold after each item. If you are one of the lucky ones, please check in on the SWS May Challenge Winners! thread for instructions as to how to claim your prize.

    1. So fun, isn’t it! I was going to wait, but realized if I did I probably wouldn’t get this posted until Wednesday or Thursday – that hardly seemed fair!

      1. LOL! Sorry about the drama — When I was typing up the winner’s list I mixed your Ravelry ID up with a knitter from my last KAL. Congratulations!

  1. Amazing!!! I wish that I had been able to enter, but preparing to move caught up with me and I didn’t have time. Next time though, I’m totally in!! Congrats to all the winners 🙂

    1. The next giveaway will be all the way at the end of the KAL, BUT I do have a few promotions lined up throughout the year so keep your eyes peeled. One may be coming up soon… and there may be a sweet little giveaway involved, too… 😉

  2. I feel like i need to make an Oscars speech!

    Firstly i’d like to thank my Grandma for teaching me to knit… 😀

    The biggest thankyou goes to Sarah and her fabulous sponsors though, you are all awesome 😀

    1. LOL! I love this!

      Really, I look at this like a team effort. I can knock on doors (figuratively, of course) for sponsors, but the KAL isn’t much without a fantastic group of knitters involved and active in it. So I have to thank *you*! THANK YOU!
