Barbara Bretton!
I won a contest over at Romancing the Yarn - a skein of utterly delicious Dream in Color Smooshy and a book by Barbara Bretton - also known as WickedSplitty on Ravelry. YAY! Thank you!

As Barbara wrote here, the Internet has an amazing power to bring people back into your life. I knew Barbara as one of my favorite patrons when I first worked as a librarian, and I was so sorry when she moved away. What a treat to meet up with her again!

We'll have to wait for her next book, Casting Spells, forever until November. Here's a peek...

I do have a FO or two to show you, but I'll have to wait until they arrive at the home of baby Narjis.

Don't you just love winning stuff? I'm working on a little something for Narjis myself. In fact I even got to meet her in person! ;-)

Congratulations Tea, what a great prize, and from an old friend too, couldn't ask for anything better then that.
