This is the Malabrigo from my order - I order three skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Paris Night which I'm thinking of using to make myself a Shalom Cardigan (there are some mods on Ravelry that I found for converting the pattern for use with the Malabrigo) and one skein of Malabrigo Lace in Frost Gray which I'm thinking will either go towards the Swallowtail Shawl or another lace shawl pattern.
And this is the Madelinetosh from my order - I got one skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Kale which I think will be used for the 198 Yards of Heaven shawl and one skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Tern which does not have a specific project attached yet but I have a few ideas (maybe Haruni?)! The pictures on the Eat.Sleep.Knit site show the colours much better - geez, yarn is hard to take good photos of!
Oh ya, before I forget! Eat.Sleep.Knit also has the really neat program called Yarnathon where you can earn prizes and stuff for hitting milestones through shopping - they add up the number of yards of yarn you buy and than convert them into miles (there are 1760 yards in a mile) so when you hit your first mile you get a welcome pack and there are milestones after that like when you hit 5k you get a $20 gift certificate. I seriously love fun programs like these and they really make me want to keep shopping. And before anyone asks, no Eat.Sleep.Knit did not ask me to say any of this, nor are they paying me - I just really, REALLY like them! I always like to give a little shout out to shops that treat their customers well!
Okay, okay, I guess you'd like to know who won the giveaway right? I know, me blabbing on about yarn is nowhere near as exciting as who won the patterns.
