Thank you post the first

Whoops – I had the wrong link for Karrie’s contest yesterday, so I’m posting it again with the correct link. Sorry about that!

Karrie’s having Fake Rhinebeck Post contest – if you didn’t go to Rhinebeck, go stashdiving and get excited again about yarn you already own! Post a picture and blog about it before midnight PDT, October 27, and you could win a fibery prize.

Largehearted Boy is having a funeral song contest – what would you like played at your memorial service? You could win Arcade Fire’s Funeral, the Mountain Goat’s Ghana, and Eudora Welty’s novel The Optimist’s Daughter! A winner will be selected at noon CDT on October 29.

Thank Yous
