    Turtle sent me! Great great stuff, so pretty! I've never used Malabrigo, so Turtle, you're not alone. I can't afford it now, but someday........

    I'll blog and link to you, too. Thanks, Turtle!

    Ooh. Prizes are fun!

    Clicked over from Rav, so I thought, why not enter?

    My Rav ID is the same as the account I'm posting from. Or just email me at the same @gmail. <3

    Yay valentines!

    Also, I think it's funny that blogger doesn't use reCaptchas.

  16. tripletsmom // January 22, 2009 at 1:16 PM  

    What a lovely Valentines contest! My girls would really enjoy the candy hearts and just maybe I would let each of them pick a cloth too:0). My name on Ravelry is TripletMom. I've got my fingers crossed.
