Gracious! I absolutely loved reading all 237 entries in the You-Pick-the Yarn Giveaway. I discovered so many new lovely patterns that I’d never seen before and I’ve fallen crazy in love with a few of them. It was great fun and really appreciate all the time you put into your answers.

As always, I wish that every single one of you could win, but alas, I have to pick three winners. And without further ado, the winners, chosen at random, are:

Congratulations to Daphne, Allison and Deb! You have 24 hours to email me at with your mailing address to claim your prize. If you didn’t win today, do not despair. Because this is my blog and my business, and I can do whatever I want,  I’m going to pick three more winners from the existing entries and post them, one at a time, some time this week. Be sure to watch the blog, because you’ll only have 24 hours to claim your prize before we chose another winner. Good Luck, y’all!

Now for the news. First, and most excitingly, the Juniper Moon Farm 2011 Cormo Shares are now available for purchase! This year we allowed current shareholders to purchase their shares before they went on sale to the public, so the number of shares available is very limited. If you really want a share don’t wait too long and miss out.

I am very close to announcing the date of our Fall Shearing Celebration (just waiting to get a confirmation of the date with the shearer) but I can tell you that this year we will be hosting the first ever JMF 5K run as part of the shearing weekend. Members of our Ravelry group, including yours truly, are doing the Couch to 5K training program which is easy, easy, easy, even if you’ve never run before. Honest! I hate running and this program is very gentle. So lace up those shoes and start training tomorrow.

Suzy and I spent the last couple of weeks dyeing yarn for our Fall Collection and I cannot tell you how proud I am of these colorways. Rich, beautiful yarn in every weight will be coming to the shop late this week or early next week. I’ll post some sneak preview pics tomorrow.

Finally, I want to thank you all for reading this blog and leaving comments. You make this whole endeavor worthwhile for me. XOX
