okay-i know you all are at the edge of your seat. drum roll please!! the winner is sharon campbell!!!!
sharon guessed "a dead mouse under the sofa"- but it is just the head of a dead mouse and it was under a box of fiber. and i remember the night Kitzie (may she rest in peace) brought it in the house, tortured it and chased it behind that stack of boxes. i didn't want to deal with it at 3:00am. then forgot about it. wondered what that smell was later on. sharon you win an original woolydaisy hand dyed skein of yarn- woowoo!!! please email me your mailing addy!
the second prize winner goes to lee from the north coast. the mummified ex-boyfriend that was living in the attic just had me crying-so very norman bates-just loved it. although i loved all of the answers!!! the stash of teeth was a close one-was that lee or marzel? i did have a dog once that was always finding deer legs and wanted to bring them in the house!!! he just couldn't understand why i wouldn't let him do that! and yes, i do have a collection of petrified lizards and owl pellets.
and yes folks i'm a sucker for prizes too-so third prize winner is marzel for her excitement, enthusiasm and passion for this contest. marzel-you get a skein of my hand dyed yarn as well- and lee, yours is a surprise!
i leave you with a couple of pics of my hand knit socks.
