And the Winner is...

Preparing the draw...


Drawing the winner
... (the white bowl proved too small)

Die Ziehung...(die weiße Schüssel war zu klein)

And the winner is Porpoiseknits who incidentally celebrates her birthday today (Sunday)!

Und gewonnen hat ein Exemplar von The Joy of Sox: Porpoiseknits.
Sie hat zufällig am heutigen Sonntag Geburtstag, da war ihr das Schicksal wohl besonders hold!

Vielen Dank für all die wunderbaren Kommentare und Mails, die ich in der letzten Woche erhalten habe.

Thank you very much for all the lovely comments and mails I received last week. It has been a terrific week.

Ich wünschte, ich hätte noch mehr Exemplare zum Verschenken. Aber es gibt vielleicht noch andere Designerinnen, die ein Buch verschenken. Schaut mal bei Ravelry nach.

I am sorry that I have not more copies to give away, but other designers may do so. Check out their names and blogs on ravelry. Maybe you will be lucky next time.
