My mailbox has been filled with goodies recently and I wanted to share:


I recently was the winner of a set of books from YA Highway. I won the Regal Literary Prize Pack, which means I get to read five books, only one of which was on my radar:

  • Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
  • A Scary Scene in a Scary Movie by Matt Blackstone
  • The Different Girl by Gordon Dahlquist
  • Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
  • Starglass by Phoebe North

I’d better pick up the pace of my reading!

I also was a winner in a Sock Knitters Anonymous contest on Ravelry for completing languishing projects during August. For finishing my Sockdolagers, I got to pick a knit sack from Peg’s Procrastinations. Peg had lots of fun fabrics to choose from, but ultimately I decided on this green bag, which has been getting lots of use recently (as you can probably tell since it appeared on the blog last week, too). It’s currently holding a sock I cast on over the weekend at the National Book Festival, where I didn’t want to be hindered with a large project. This knit sack is ingeniously designed so that the caribiner on the drawstring can attach to a ring on the inside of the bag, allowing it to stay open while draped over your wrist or attached to a belt loop for knitting on the go or while standing at the back of a tent listening to an author talk.

Thanks to Peg (and the organizers of the August Sockdown on Ravelry) and to YA Highway. I really like my prizes!
