Garrett’s project, Beyond The Light, received 102% funding on Kickstarter! The project closed on his birthday- and I think this was one of the nicest presents he could have received. Thank you so, so much to everyone who helped to make this happen- to everyone who donated, to everyone who tweeted, or passed the message along Facebook- thank you.
And so: as promised, Sam and I sat down with a camera and we had the raffle for the four skeins of Gaia Fingering in Little Round Top. We brought in a little help, too.
At first, Hugo was more interested in the cats than in helping us pick names from the funny hat. He came around, though.
First he inspected all the slips, to make sure they were all in order.
Then Hugo inspected the silly hat. (Remember, we specifically said the names had to be drawn from a silly hat! This was the silliest we had on hand.)
Then I inspected the hat. It seemed to be mostly in order.
Then we were ready to start drawing names!
Our first lucky winner is Lilie W.- thank you so much, and congratulations!
Our second winner was Tan S.! Thank you for the support, and congratulations!
The third winner is Emily W.! Thank you, Emily, and congratulations!
The fourth and final winner is Barbara H.- thank you so much!
After that, things got a little silly…
… but eventually, Hugo got the treat he’d earned.
As it turns out, I have a mailing address for everyone except Emily- so Emily, I’ll be emailing you tonight to ask for a mailing address, and everyone else, I’ll be shipping out your skeins on Monday!
Thank you again, everyone!
