A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a "Christmas Pickle" contest hosted by Marilyn of "Marilyn's Knitting Heaven On Earth". She gave instructions to knit up her "Christmas Pickle" dishcloth, take a picture of it and email it to her. The first person to do this would be awarded with a knitting~related prize. I wasn't the first to enter my picture but I was a close second, and Marilyn decided to award me with a prize as well. What a wonderful woman! I was so happy, as I never win anything! Thank you Marilyn! Anyway, I just received my prize in the mail (a beautiful pattern book full of fun kids afghans and stuffed animals to do up). So thanks again!! I've posted the picture below of my winning (2nd place) "Christmas Pickle" dishcloth. I wasn't so thrilled with my colour choice, but that was the closest thing to "green" I could find!
