Just a quick post today to share the winner of the fabulous Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe giveaway. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who participated and took the time to pop over to this terrific little shop. And I’m so glad to hear that a good number of you also made a purchase — I think it’s so wonderful that small online shops provide us with so many options and I find it so important to support them. For those who made purchases, I’m sure you’ll love your lotion bars & lip balms just as I do! For those who are still considering, remembering that coupon code —  FOS10 — is good for 10% off your order from the Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe through the end of December, so you still have time to spoil yourself, something we all deserve after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

And now, the winner of the giveaway.

April Merry KAL Wrap-Up

April 30th is upon us, friends. As always, here are some photos of my finished Christmas Ball for this month.

april close-upA little close-up — I love how the detail  where the colors change at the top of the ball is so seamless.

april crochet loopI will confess I had to do some emergency drying last night & then an 11th hour crochet loop attachment which I accidentally shorted a bit (whoops!). My ball has been done for days, but I got a little distracted by nice weather and put off blocking a bit too long. No harm, no foul. It’s dry and lovely now.

Many thanks to everyone who has posted up their photos on the Ravelry thread of their finished Christmas balls — they look so great & it has been so rewarding to know that everyone seems to have enjoyed this motif as much as me. Each and every one of you will be entered in a drawing for our giveaways — yay! If you ran a bit short on time this month, any entries posted to the Ravelry thread by midnight (12:00am CST) will be included in the giveaway drawing — oodles of time to knit up one of these little Christmas balls  and win one of the fabulous prizes! Remember that you can knit any Christmas ball from the book — the only rule is it has to be completed between April 1st & April 30th!

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the reveal of May’s Christmas ball — until then, happy knitting!
