Today's the day...
That's right, this is going to be a socky day. First off, we need to do the drawing for the Advent Sock Kit giveaway. I made a list (Did you have to make a list? you ask. Yes, of course. Few occasions do not call for a list. I love lists) and I cut out the names and made a little pile of contestants - those who entered by sending me a comment (published and unpublished) and those who contacted me via other crafting forums on the web.
Then I had Mr Gingerbread lend a manly hand. We had a minor kerfuffle with regard to the actual receptacle for the draw, as the bowl I'd selected was too small for his enormously unGingerbreadman hands. Finally, we settled on my salad bowl and without further ado, he drew a winner:
Thank you to everyone who entered - I had more than 30 entries, which surprised even me. The good news is that as I tidy up, I'm winding up quite a few little balls of yarn ... so we might have another one of these again soon. I'll keep you posted!
