Making for Makers Cycle 2 is now accepting registrants. 

The idea for this initiative was realized in this blog post. 

 **2nd cycle deadline to submit email address to organizer [me: RavID-pinkcashmere1980) is: JUNE 14, 2015 **

 **Gifts are to be completed by: DECEMBER 16, 2015 **

****You must private message the organizer with your email address and your location to be entered into the cycle. Once your email is received, you will be sent a link to the random name generator program. At that time, you will input your entry form in that system.****

I won and I lost

For my birthday I entered and won Handspunstagram’s contest on Instagram. It took a few weeks to get to me because she made orders to moo to make the cards. I got a lot of stuff: a bag, 3 wool balls for spinning, 3 handmade stitch markers from her shop Made by Melissa, 3 care labels/tags, and 3 note cards from photos on my Instagram page.


Now, as for my loss. I got my yarn from Eat, Sleep, Knit and my 2 scratch off cards. The yarn is beautiful, I cannot tell a lie. But the scratch offs… Oh the scratch offs. I could tell those scratch off cards were off. They were bigger and harder to scratch off so I can only conclude that Eat, Sleep, Knit changed providers. Anyway, I scratched off and I got excited because usually when you get 2 matches it means the 3rd is under one of unscratched boxes. I prematurely did a happy dance only to find I hadn’t won not a thing…TWICE. Now I’m crying for my $5 store credit! Oh well.
