Here are the luck winners of recent contests! For the Red Hot Mama crocheted purse contest, the five lucky winners and comments are:
I like Sweet Georgia Yarns in Coal Harbor with Summer Skin!
Kathy in KS
I have been crocheting for, ahem, a while. I counted the rounds, and it looks like there's 8. So, I would choose one of those Gradience sets, and do 2 rounds of each color. I'm especially fond of the Jack Frost, November, and the Luau colorways, but really, they're all awesome.
Oh so hard to choose colors but I'd go with onyx and baltic , the colors of my local hockey team - hopefully if I knit it they'll resolve their lockout! Great Pattern.
Madeline Tosh Sock in Tomato with Onyx borders would make an incredible trick-or-treat bag for Halloween parties! (Or a great everyday purse for an orange nut like me.)
There are so many great options from which to choose. But I've been eager to try Sweet Georgia yarns, and I love bright colors. So I think I'd choose TL Sock in Peashoot and Pomegranite, or maybe Lettuce Wrap. All lovely.
Congrats to all five! I'll pass your information onto the pattern designer, so if you don't hear from her in a week or so, please let me know b/c I want to make sure I got your e-mail addresses right. For one of you I have no e-mail, so if you hear nothing soon, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org - same for the winner below!

I always wear my Symphony V Moebius shawl/cowl made out of the black, gray & white Zauberball on Halloween, as well as around the holiday. It can be drawn up into a hood for when you're outside which comes in handy when it's snowing Halloween night.
