Hello friends, and happy new year! It's good to be back here today, which I think is the sign of a Christmas vacation that was just long enough. I hope that you all had time to enjoy the holidays (and maybe to sneak some crafting in amidst the turkey dinners and family gatherings).

Big thanks to Ginger, whose comment led to my mum and I taking a fun jaunt out to Stitch, a lovely little store that stocks yarn, fabric, hooks, needles...and so much more. (And we followed that up with some delicious local cheese. What a day!) And now for the lucky winner of Reversible Knitting by Lynne Barr. As usual, the random integer generator did the hard work... Congratulations to Petrina! I'll be in touch shortly with details, Petrina. And stay tuned for the first giveaway of 2010! This time it's something for the sewists (or aspiring sewists) in the group.
