How it worked: The first thing I did was establish who had how many entries, then I assigned a number for each entry (there were 70 total entries!!).
After I found out which 7 people won (there were 7 prizes) I then had mini drawings if more than one of the people wanted one of the prizes. (There was a lot of competition for the yarn, as you can imagine, even among just the 7 winners!)
Because no one wanted the crochet tools, they were retired from the field.
If people liked both the yarn and the patterns, but didn't win the yarn, I increased the number of 'pattern prizes' so they won something they wanted. PDFs are good that way LOL.
In no particular order, here are the winners and the prizes they won! If I don't have contact information for one of the winners, and they do not contact me within one week from today, I will choose another winner from the pool of 70 entries next Friday. (minus those who have already won, of course).
Winners, please contact me at ottergal AT comcast DOT net to give me your mailing information.
