i did end up going with the random number generator, and so the winners of Mixed Knits are…

14 – Rebecca, who said

Well, I’m already making a Beau out of handdyed teal and lavender llama/wool blend from a local farm, so I guess I have to come up with something else. My son Rhys is going to be a doll in that sweater, though. I just know it!

My husband and I make a pot of tea every morning, so I definitely will make the tea cozy, with yarn spun from a Spunky Eclectic club fiber (February, bright pink, yellow, teal, called Tropic-oh la la or something) and also plain green-blue yarn spun from a DailyFiber roving. (DailyFiber is out of Murfreesboro, TN, gorgeous dyeing!) Once I spin down my stash some more, I hope to join one of your farm wool clubs!

and 30 – Amanda, who said

A few months ago, my girlfriend won a box full of roving balls in a rainbow assortment of colors at a silent auction. I’m planning on spinning up singles and plying two shades of the same color up together. I would spin up the two green colors (one is more of a kelly green, the other is on the yellow end of green) for the Brussels sprout mitts, which I love and are totally adorable. I think the finished yarn would look neat and suit the simple, clean lines of the pattern. And of course remind me of one of my favorite veggies: the Brussels sprout!

I’ve also been thinking about making the reflection hat from some Juniper Moon Farms yarn in my stash. I have a nice medium blue with subtle variegations that would be the main color of the hat and a gorgeous blue-green variegated yarn that would make a *lovely* contrast color in this pattern.

Thanks to everyone who entered and congrats to you two!
