On April 6th I checked my Twitter feed to see what was the haps. As I scrolled THIS got my attention:
Elizabeth Clements! Calling Elizabeth Clements! Message me, please, Elizabeth Clements! You are our winner of our random drawing that includes all of our first 2,000 “Likes!”
I clicked the link that took me to the Facebook page of Brown Sheep Company. I asked them if it was really me they were trying to reach. ( I haven’t won anything since the 7th grade. A phone. It was UGLY.) There ARE a few Elizabeth Clements out there, you know. Guess what! It WAS me! Not only did I win, I won YARN. Glorious, wonderful yarn.
After emailing back and forth with the lovely Melissa from Brown Sheep, I was all set. All I had to do was wait. Patiently. For yarn. Patiently waiting. Pay-shen-tleeeeee.
Finally, it arrived on Friday. I took it out and spread it before me. The color is rich, and the yarn is so soft. I received a pattern for a knit jacket called Two for Tea. I feel so very, very blessed. The economy has steamrolled my yarn budget. I have been living on Red Heart Super Saver yarn. It is nice to receive some yarn that won’t turn to lava in a fire. This yarn is definitely a blessing from above.
Here is a looksy:
Go check out Brown Sheep’s site and get a look at all of their wonderful yarn. The only retailer I have found is about an hour away from me. Boo! But it is well worth the trip. Brown Sheep is a family owned company located in Mitchell, Nebraska. I love Nebraska. I used to make a pit stop there on cross country drives in Sidney. (Cabela’s was a great distraction for my son when he was a tiny tot.)
My thanks to Brown Sheep Company, for making this lady very happy.
