It's Good to Win


I was beside myself when I had a $3 winner in the lottery on Tuesday. Feeling lucky, I parlayed my winnings and bought 2 Powerball tickets (jackpot $200,000,000) and 1 Megamillions ticket (jackpot $20,000,000). I'm hoping for all the numbers for the Powerball to hit on Saturday, but hey, if I win the paltry $20,000,000, I'll be satisfied. I mean, if I won 200 million, when would I knit? I'd be too busy in the counting house.

Some others are winners this week, too, and I think their winnings should keep them busy for awhile.

The runner up for the Knitcircus giveaway is Rositta! Congratulations my friend. You are winning the patterns to the spring collection. Since I have your email address already, I'll be forwarding the pattern collection directly to you. I'm kind of tickled that you won this since I know you want to knit that little green dress.

The grand prize winner for the Knitcircus giveaway is Stephanie V. Hey! That's a Canadian sweep! Wasn't the hockey gold medal enough? Congratulations, Stephanie! You win a one year subscription to Knitcircus. Awesome. Send me your email address (rudeek45atgmaildotcom--use symbols for at and dot). I'll forward your email to Jaala so that she can enter your subscription.

I don't think either one of you can complain about not having anything ewenique to knit for awhile now. Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone for playing along and thank you, Jaala, and Knitcircus for the great giveaways.

I'm thinking I should use the random number generator to pick my next set of lottery numbers. If it worked for Rositta and Stephanie, maybe it could work for me!

Congrats to the winners! That is wonderful [the Canadian comment made me chuckle - Go Canada!]

I can't wait to see that adorable green dress on a little girl - I hope you share after you make it! :)

You've inspired me to buy a lottery ticket. Like the old man said, "If you ain't in then you can't win."

Congratulations to the winners! They will be very happy with their gifts.

I hope you win the Power Ball. A Teaching Assistant in the school I use to work at won the biggest pay out ever in the N.Y. Lottery. Millions. She is the sweetest, most kind hearted person I ever met. So dreams really do come true. I just never thought I would ever know anyone who actually won. Good luck.

XXXXXXX

I was all excited! I thought I might finally get to know someone who won...big time...the lottery.

Looks like two people did that in your giveaway. Congratulations to them.
