I Won!!

I had a surprise in my mailbox today...this strange squishy package which felt like yarn was within, but I kept thinking, "I don't remember ordering anything..." Well, as it turned out, I won a contest in one of the magazines I buy!! Unbelievable! Now I don't have to feel so bad when my friends win stuff at the blogs they visit...believe me, I've tried to enter those contests to win stuff at other people's blogs, but it was never meant to be.

The contest was to get the yarn to make the hat on the front cover...simply had to send in your name and address to the email address listed. My guess is that the odds were greater to win through a magazine than on any blog, so it's totally ironic that I won!!
The yarn is Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky color 555 which is a very nice soft pink...
It's so soft! I just love sticking my face into it and smelling it! I'll need to look at the hat pattern again to see if that's what I really do with it!
So what a nice surprise!!! Totally love love love this yarn!!!! I may just look at it and cuddle with it for awhile!
