Lookee what I got in the mail today - yarn from Red Heart!
They sent me 4 balls of that gorgeous "rose dust" color, which is their Eco-Ways recycled blend; 3 balls of the blue Eco-Ways bamboo wool and 3 balls of tangerine Eco-Ways eco-cotton blend. Aren't those colors beautiful! They also sent me a reusable bag with the Save the Planet contest logo on it:
And they sent me a very nice letter, which states: "We were so pleased that you were a runner-up in our 'Save the Planet' contest. In our eyes you are a winner!" Isn't that nice! What an unexpected, wonderful surprise! Now I just need to figure out what to knit with all my great new yarn goodies!
While I didn't win the contest, just to be chosen as a finalist was really an accomplishment: there were over 300 entries! And if I hadn't entered, I would always be wondering how that great idea I had for a knitted globe would have done in the contest. At least I gave it a shot!
And on that thought, I leave you with a parting quote:
"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
Have a nice evening!
