AND THE WINNER IS.............

I spent several hours rearranging and reorganizing the yarn closet yesterday. I pulled everything out, and put it all back with the exception of the Rowan and RYC yarns. This is what I was left with;

(does anyone think there may be a problem here?)

I counted and photographed it all, added the photos to Flickr, and entered it into the Ravelry data base this morning. I have to admit, I made a guess before counting, and I ended up with TWICE as much as I thought I had.

So without further adieu, and much fanfare, the grand total in yards is 57,041, which converts to 52,158.29 meters, making the winner;

Diana T, with her guess of 46,000 meters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will give Diana her choice of Rowan Summer Tweed in either Morning Glory or Gold.

I just want to thank everyone who played. I had no idea that SO many people read my blog. Sort of makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Now I need to knit some sweaters so I'll be warm and fuzzy on the outside too!

Congrats Diana!

Wow Steve..that is quite the yarn stash! What a generous prize you, and what a small dent it will make in your stash! I will continue to "lurk" and post! Enjoy your weekend.

Hey, a big congrats to Diana T. ! What a guess! This was a great contest, Steve. And I don't think you have a problem - not at all. If you do, well....I guess we all have the same one. I'm sure your closet feels OH so empty now. NOT!
