Since we had 5 total comments, I didn't use the random number generator (random.org). I used the time-tested child labor.
So we started like this:
|All of our lovely commenters!|
|My black sheep mug.|
|He puts his hands in that mug all the time, this time he just had permission to do it.|
So we made a list of the names pulled out in order as so
|Read like knitting chart, bottom up.|
If we recall from the original post, each name was entered to win one of the prizes being offered. In that post there were only 3 prizes, so you may be wondering why we pulled all 5 names. Before I get into the next bit, let me explain. I decided that the pool of candidates was not so large to choose from that everyone couldn't be a winner in our first giveaway. So I set up a bag of goodies, and let little man pull the yarn for the names. Because the 2 additional prizes are (in my opinion) just as fabulous as the originals, they were put in there for everyone to benefit from as well.

First name pulled was One Sheep. Little man pulled this from the yarn bag first. He says it is very soft.
|He's right, this is sooo soft to knit with. Hope you love it!!|
|300 yards silk/wool blend in colorway indecita|
|You grabbed the cashmere/mink!|
Next, the small hand of fate chose TuttleDB. And for your prize, he pulled a fun one.
Last, but not least, the boy pulled DMPattersall. The last yarn to be pulled was waiting for you, but I hope you won't be disappointed!

Congrats to all of you!! And thank you all for your feedback and encouragement. Please email me privately where you want your prizes sent!! Email to marveloustoy @ yahoo . com (remove the spaces, and it will get to me) and I'll pop your loot in the mail! I've taken the liberty of emailing the folks whose emails addresses I can access. But Graywolfie and TuttleDB, I need to hear from both of you as I haven't been able to snag your mail addresses (possibly due to being blind or crazy).
Edited to add: If you like someone else's prize better, feel free to haggle. Just let me know what you decide amongst yourselves :)
Okay, thank you all for reading this far, and happy knitting.
