Thank you everyone who took time to enter the giveaway. I had a blast reading the comments. You guys came up with some interesting facts! I thought I'd share my five favorite here (the ones that competed for the Noro):

Random Fact: Collectively my little toes have been run over by three cars and a piano. Plus countless times that Mom's run over them with her Rascal.

[Too funny...and painful!]

What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!
Random fact about me. I've been searching for months and months to figure out a crochet stitch that my husband's great-grandmother had used for MANY afghans she created. I have finally figured it out, and I am almost finished making a baby blanket for my sister-in-law and niece-to-be using that stitch. It will be a tribute to her from her great-great-grandmother's incredible crocheting legacy. I hope they like it!

[That's amazing, Mindy! How wonderful that you're carrying on a family tradition and making connections between generations.]

What gorgeous yarn! Any of them would be such a special treat!
Something about me: My Grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 4 years old with thread. It's something I've done my entire life and I think of her every time I pick up my hook.
Thank you for entering me in the giveaway. :)

[Wow, either your grandmother was very patient or you were a very talented child. Maybe both. :) I'm amazed that you learned with thread at such a young age!]

Something about myself...when I was about 9-10 I wrote and orchestrated a play in which my 7-8 yr old cousin walked out into the livingroom at my g'parents stating, "Oh, I'm just a streetwalker. Just a streetwalker." Of course, the parents in the room and my grandparents threw a fit...and I never admitted to them that I was the one who told her to say that.

[I love funny kid stories. I actually know Jennifer and cannot imagine her ever saying streetwalker.]

I am posting my 368th blog post today! So, I'm near 400, too. I'm sure the weather there is similar to this odd weather we've had here...extremely hot days, then very cool days...right now, I'm wearing the orange alpaca socks (my first ever socks I knit) to keep warm!

[Orange alpaca socks sound super cozy! Hurray for first socks!]
