To the winner go the spoils

As I've already mentioned recently, I've been entering alot of knitting blog contests lately. It's a fun way to find new blogs, and occasionally I even win something! Today, I figured I'd share my recent winnings with you.

First up, I got a very generous prize from Natalie at Keeping me in Stitches:



That's a generous six skeins of Elann's Pure Alpaca in Celery color. Since Natalie's contest was about making more environmentally-friendly lifestyle choices, she also sweetly sent along a bottle of green Method cleaner...and some chocolate!

Secondly, I won the runner-up prize in the Spring Goals contest at Skeins Her Way:



That's a skein of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton, a set of adorable little notecards, and lots of candy! And check out this presentation: how can you resist the springy green-and-pink color theme?

Finally, I got a whole bunch of yarn from Christy at Hissyknit:



Two skeins of soft and sunny Plymouth Fantasy Naturale, and a skein of Crystal Palace Yarns Maizy corn fiber yarn! Corn fiber! How cool is that?

Now to figure out what to do with all this lovely yarn!

(Erm...the candy's long gone...)

I am so interested in your topsy turvey doll. Of the ones I've seen yours is the best. The pattern seems difficult to get--not really available through the usual sources. I may try to copy it from the photo, but again, yours is absolutely beautiful.
