Knit Giveaway Results

Last week, with the successful completion of my first knitting project in at least 25 years, I decided to run a knitting giveaway.  Today, I am happy to announce the winner, and also that I have completed my second project!

So, I used Mat Hayward's randomiser (came up first in my google search), and input numbers for everyone who commented last week.  After just a single click, a winner had been chosen...

But first, I have to show off my latest project :) 

I remembered to photo it before sewing it up this time :)

The finished product :D

I think it came out really quite nicely, certainly better than the first, which shows I'm learning: always a good thing.  For this one I had a greater variety of needles to choose from, which helped.  The first stretch was a bit too loose, in part as the needles were a little large for the yarn, I think.  After that, it tightened up quite nicely.  I also had a little trouble with the loop for the button, which was smoother than the last, but a bit too long :(  Ah, well, can't have everything, right? 

Anyhow, now the bit you've all really been waiting for ;)  The winner is...
