Land of 10,000 Lakes

Minnesota and yarnI first met Amy C. Rea through her blog, Knit Think, where her motto is "As ye knit, so shall ye rip" -- Leah K, and where she writes about food, flowers, knitting, poetry, and Star Trek collectible glasses. Amongst other things.

She recently ran a contest on her other blog, A Closer Look at Flyover Land, where she writes about the beauties of Minnesota. I won!

Not only do I have my own, signed copy of her new book, Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes, but also a collection of poetry from Minnesota, Where One Voice Ends, Another Begins, and the delicious skein of hand-dyed yarn by Aisha Celia in the photos.

Of course, the first entries I looked for in the index were "book stores" and "yarn stores." Plenty of each, of course...

Thank you, Amy, for the books, the yarn, and for our friendship.

I have always thought that I would really like Minnesota. Tim and I often joke that we like cold weather and snow so much, we'll probably be the only people in history to ever retire there ...

Congrats! Looks like a nice package of winnings.

My pleasure, Melanie!

See? I told you we have lots of yarn and bookstores.
