It was a nail-biter. Right from the start it was a pitched battle between two hot contenders that came right down to the wire. In the dying seconds, it was all decided by a final volley of votes.
In a field like this, they're all winners. But a winner there must be, and it has been chosen.
Piggy will be knitting Spring Leaves, by Katrin Vorbeck. Congratulations to Nicole (nkfoster21), who nominated this beauty. Nicole can choose between a skein of Wollmeise 100% in Sabrina, or Wollmeise 80/20 Twin in Pfefferminz Prinz.
The advocates for three of the remaining finalists, isisonearth (Nefertiti Wrap), Kristin (Moon Dance) and MrsQuimby (Cheshire Cat Stole) will each receive a skein of Malabrigo Lace in Vaa. Chelle, who nominated Twinings, will receive something animal-fibre-free from my stash, as she is allergic to wool, alpaca, etc.
I also have the names of the three winners of the random draw, each of whom will receive the Ravelry download pattern of their choice (to a maximum value of $7 each). Congratulations to...
Winners, please e-mail yarnpiggy AT gmail DOT com or pm me on Ravelry (Rav id: yarnpiggy) with your snail mail addresses and/or choices, and I'll get things out by the middle of next week.
Thanks again to everyone who submitted pattern suggestions and voted. I hope you'll stick around for the continuing drama as I attempt to complete my first big lace project.
